On Sundays during the month of February we will continue watching short video presentations each week produced by Rob Bell. These films explore our world through the teachings of Jesus. These films do not claim to have all the answers, but they do claim to start the conversation.
ALL adults gather together in the Media Room as we make our way on this journey of faith and discovery!
Here’s the February Line-up:
February 3 … "Kickball"
February 10 … “Luggage”
February 17 … “Dust”
February 24 … "Bullhorn"
All are welcome to join us … in the Lounge! Class is held on Sundays at 10:15 am.
The Sermon on the Mount: A Call to Discipleship
In this Year of Scripture … we gather around God’s Word … specifically the Sermon on the Mount. Through these words of Jesus … Matthew 5-7 … we will hear and explore what it means for us to be called to discipleship. In a world and culture … where following Jesus may cause us to “swim upstream,” against what is popular … together we will read, talk and pray about what it might look like for us to live as “growing disciples of Jesus.”
This 6-week study has been written by Bishop Daniel Beaudoin. We will gather on Thursdays at 6:30 pm. Our first study will be held on Thursday, January 31 at 6:30 pm.
Other gatherings will be on February 7, 14, 21, 28 and March 7.
All are welcome to join us on this journey.

Faith is a journey.
Folks of all ages are on a quest that begins in the waters of Baptism, and continues throughout life as we all seek to grow in faith and in our practice of the things that disciples do. Many of which can be practiced during this hour dedicated to Christian nurture on Sunday mornings (for example Reading the Bible, Praying, Giving and Encouraging one another.)
