Jesus in the Gospels
September 17, 2017 - October 8, 2017
This new adult Sunday School class led by Steve Britt will begin September 17. The goal of this time will be to experience who Jesus is in the Gospels. What is Jesus like? How does he act? What does he say and care about? We'll read together through large passages and reflect how Jesus comes through to us. Lots of reading aloud, some discussion, no lecturing. Each session will stand on its own. Printed texts will be provided, but bring a bible if you like. Children's Sunday School will be happening simultaneously for 4 year-olds through 5th grade, but older kids are also invited to join in on adult class. Nursery childcare is available for children 3 and younger. Breakfast provided.
The Freshness of the Fathers: The Relevance of the Early Church for Faith Today
In February and March 2017, we looked at the faith of Christians in the first few centuries AD. We discussed the many parallels with issues we face today while also highlighting the different approaches they often took to address those in their day. The presuppositions, practices, and postures of the Church leaders and laypersons inspired us to think in fresh ways about theology, worship, and culture. Class was led by James Wood.

Navigating the White Water Rapids of Culture & Politics
In January 2017, Marvin Olasky led Grace + Peace is discussing how to apply the Bible to current events without either underusing or overusing Scripture (ignoring the Bible when it's clear, using it for political advantage when it's unclear). We discussed ways Christians can examine controversial issues without coming to blows or making an idol out of politics.

Homosexuality & Christianity: A Message of Hope
