Christianity’s Family Tree – What Other Christians Believe and Why

Wednesday 10:00 AM-11:00 AM     Elizabeth Room     Rev. Jim Lubach     Jan 12 – Mar 2, 2022

Pastor Lubach is back by popular demand with another fascinating class on Christianity.  The book is available for $9.99 at Cokesbury or $10.69 at Amazon and will make an excellent pre-Lenten study.  The book itself is described as follows:  “Adam Hamilton presents a welcoming, inspiring vision of eight Christian denominations and faith traditions. Comparing the Christian family to our own extended families, he contends that each denomination has a unique, valuable perspective to offer on the Christian faith.”

 

Protestant Prayer Beads

Thursday February 17th 1:00 PM-4:00 PM     St. Luke Room     Nancy Yob

When the Israelites felt lost and afraid, God gave them a prayer tool of knotted fringe.  The fringe helped them stay focused on God.  Have you ever felt lost or does your mind wander during prayer?  Prayer Beads can help. Join leader, Nancy Yob, to explore the history of the beads, and create your own unique set.  We will look at ways to use the beads to enrich our prayer time and strengthen our connection with God. There is a $5.00 class fee to cover supplies.

Up From the Ashes Bible Studies

Thursday 1:30 PM     St John Room

Led by Lay Leader Jim Bleess, this Bible Study has been meeting since May and follows this pattern.  Class members take turns reading aloud the Bible passages for the week, then have time for questions and a brief discussion period.  They are currently starting the Gospel Luke.  At the completion of these two books of the Bible, the class votes on the next book to read.  The class has an open enrollment policy and welcomes new members.  If you would like to join, contact Donna Boring.  If you have questions, contact Jim Bleess.
