Have you ever listened to a scripture reading in church on a Sunday morning and found yourself asking “What in the world was that all about?” Sound familiar? If it does, then please consider joining us for “Bible 101,” a weekly Sunday School class for adults that explores each Sunday’s scripture lessons in a lecture/discussion format. We’ll probe the depths of each lesson, examine its background, context, and meaning, and help class members better understand how these lessons relate to our worship experience as well as to the lives we live each day. There are absolutely no prerequisites or qualifications! Whether you’re a bible scholar, struggling student, or complete novice, this class is for all God’s people. Led by the Rev. Stephen DeGweck, Tilson Room.
Book Study: Philip Yancey’s Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News?
“Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?” Philip Yancey, author and journalist, has been asking this question all his life. His perennial question is more relevant now than ever: research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically—and opinions of Evangelicals have taken even deeper dives. Yet while opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. In Vanishing Grace, Yancey shows the desperate need our world has for grace, and how Christians can truly make the gospel good news again. In this video-based small group book study, participants will explore what kind of news is good to a culture that thinks it has rejected the Christian version. Wading deep into the transformative power of grace, they will hear illuminating stories of how faith can be expressed in ways that disarm even the most cynical.

Five Turning Points in Church History: How did the Christian religion become the most fundamental framework for European society and culture? This course will offer the basic outlines of the beginnings of an answer to this question. We will start with two 4th century Roman Emperors who utterly transformed Christianity, and end with two radical 14th century church reformers who foreshadowed Luther by more than a hundred years. Of course, a five week course can only hit some of the highlights of this story, but it should be an enjoyable and thought-provoking experience nonetheless. Of course, no prior study of—or even interest in—church history is necessary! Led by Mike DeBow, 4:00 pm, Founders Room.
