Adult Sunday School

January 7th, 2018

 

Choose to grow your faith in one of our five adult classes, offered between worship services, 9:45–10:45.

 

Challenges and Choices – Room 11

The topic for C&C will continue in January with sexual misconduct. Since the mid 1970s when the term "sexual harassment" was first used, legislation and workplace initiatives have begun to address this problem.  Sunday, we will continue to discuss other positive changes underway now and what more is needed.

SeekersClass – Room 12
This class is working through a study from The Work of the People titled The Ridiculous Journey: Following a Nobody from Nowhere. A search for purpose and meaning in the events and choices of our lives. A costly journey with an unknown destination. A Middle Eastern homeless man from twenty centuries ago and why he still stirs the souls and imagination of so many.  This 6-session series on Jesus' invitation to follow him includes films by Nadia Bolz-Weber, Greg Boyle, Brene Brown, Emmanuel Katongole, Rachel Held Evans, Richard Rohr, and Rowan Williams. Join us!

Roots and Wings Class– Community Hall
This class made up of mostly parents of young children will be starting a new study Painting the Stars: Science, Religion, and an Evolving Faith. This series is also being studied by another St. Stephen’s Class and many classes over the last few years have encountered this transformative study.

Listening for God Class – Room 6
This class is starting a new book titled My Grandfather’s Blessing by Rachel Naomi Remen. Dr. Remen's grandfather, an orthodox rabbi and scholar of the Kabbalah, saw life as a web of connection and knew that everyone belonged to him, and that he belonged to everyone. My Grandfather's Blessings is about how we can recognize and receive our blessings and bless the life in others. Serving others heals us. Through our service we will discover our own wholeness and the way to restore hidden wholeness in the world.

Young Adult Class—NEW!—in Hannah’s Office
This group of 18-29 –year-olds is working on the study Painting the Stars: Science, Religion, and an Evolving Faith.  Celebrating the communion of science and faith, Painting the Stars explores the promise of evolutionary Christian spirituality. Join us!
