Our Senior Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Larry Norris, is leading this class on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 in Martin Hall. The theme of the study this summer is Justice in the New Testament. The four books of the Bible that will be the mainstay of the study are Matthew, Luck, Colossians, and 2nd Corinthians. Justice is portrayed as a primary character of God's nature. Human beings are called to emulate God's justice towards one another. The lessons focus on:
*God is Just and Merciful
*Jesus Call for Justice and Mercy
*Paul Teacher About New Life in Christ
Each week's lesson includes:
*a purpose statement offering focus and direction for the lesson
* Bible text
*Bible explanation and application that is relevant
*opportunities for guided discussions
Direct from church yards, the celebrated photo album of these signs was composed by Steve and Pam Paulson. Church Signs Across America celebrates the wit, charm and poetry of church signs from every state in the United States. At once reverent and witty, these signs offer fascinating glimpses into American life that are variously humorous, inspirational, kitschy, backward, and kind - and occasionally all those things at once!
Perhaps you have seen one of these signs as you and your family have traveled around. Let's explore their messages together and see what these signs are REALLY trying to tell us. July 23 - 25, 1:00 - 3:00 pm. Bring a snack to share!
Led by Deirdre Poyer, " Deep Blue: Learn and Serve!" teaches children about God and what is means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. This year the children are exploring Guatemala, Kenya, Alaska, and Armenia with their regular Deep Blue "guides" - Asia, Edgar, Kat, and Caleb - to see how they can work together for the benefit of God's kingdom here on Earth. Deep Blue meets on Sunday mornings in Room D of the Education Building at 9:30.
