Bible Study for Adults and Teens in Fellowship Hall -  Led by Deidre Sweet

The upstairs adult Sunday School class will continue to make the way through the New Testament Letters.  This class is structured to read sections of the letters in Biblical order from beginning to end of the book.  All class participants are encouraged to join in as they feel led.  This class is appropriate for adults and teens.  Bring your Bible and join us as we all continue to learn what the Bible really says and how we can apply it to our lives to reap the blessings God has promised us.

 

Adult Class - Downstairs  - Led by Pastor Donna and Others

Adults and older teens are welcome in the downstairs class that studies the intersection of faith and current events.  Using the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection DVD series "Chrisitianity and World Religions" we will explore points of similarity and difference between Christianity and other major world religions.  The goal is to build greater understanding and compassion for people of other faiths so that we might better express the biblical mandate to love our neighbors.  It also is intended to clarify and affirm our own choice to be followers of Christ.  (Dates may be approximate)
