Summer studies are an exciting opportunity to deepen our faith and grow in relationship with God and each other. There are several different classes being offered by different teachers so there is something for everyone! Sign up for your class on the form below.
Sonship - Kevin Potherican
Kevin’s Home - 1164 S Acoma St.,
Sunday evenings August 2 - August 30
Many of us think of the Gospel as the news which saves the “sinner”, or the news which brings about conversion. Rarely do we think of the Gospel as being the news which brings about ongoing conversion from the unbelief that grips our hearts every day - the power that brings about conversion is also the power that sanctifies saints! This summer come think through this additional dimension of the Gospel by exploring the theology of our adoption as children of God and its implications on our daily lives.
Women of Prayer - Deacon Cindy Hamilton
Cindy's home - 4440 W. Geddes Ave.
Tuesday evenings, 4 weeks, beginning July 14
So often we think of prayer as something we do to break through to God—to get His attention and to get Him to listen to us. But intimacy with God is His idea. He has taken the initiative, and prayer is His gift to us. Join us as we use “Becoming a Woman of Prayer” Bible Study to jumpstart our quiet times during the week and our conversations when we meet.
Seeking Joy - Deacon Jeromie Rand
location TBD, if you would like to host this study please contact Jeromie
Joy is an essential characteristic of the Christian life,but it often seems hard to find. In this study, we will explore the topic of joy: what is it and how can we cultivate it in our lives?
Anglicanism, the Gospel, and the Modern World - Pastor Rob Paris
Rob's home - 3180 S Race St.
Sundays 6:30-8pm, 6 weeks, beginning July 12
Life in the modern age can be fairly bewildering for us as followers of Jesus. What does Christian spirituality look like when it is engaged with the realities of the world in which we live? This class will explore the rich resources of Anglican theology and practice, which can root us more deeply in the gospel and guide us in our response to the deeper questions our culture raises for us. Join us as we develop a better understanding of Anglicanism and pursue greater cultural wisdom.
Raising Resilient Children - Jess & Sara Bartley
The Barley's home - 917 Cook Street
Saturdays 6 - 8pm, July 18th & August 15th
Why do some people seem to cope more easily than others with the obstacles of life, and how can adults nurture this attribute in the children we care about? This summer Jess and Sara Bartley are hosting a two-part discussion centered on the book Raising Resilient Children: Fostering Strength, Hope and Optimism in Your Child, by Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein. Parents, teachers and mentors are invited to pick up a copy and join us.
