Sermon Talk-back

Sundays 10:30 AM, Library

Following the Example of Jesus:  The Good Shepherd

Sundays 10:30 AM, Lounge

September 16 to October 14

Led by: Deb Burg

Jesus called himself the good shepherd and the Bible is rich with the imagery of sheep and their shepherds.  In this class, we will learn about what it is meant to be a shepherd in Jesus’ time so that we can understand why Jesus would call himself “the good shepherd”.  With this understanding, we can then discuss what it means to follow Jesus’ example through the act of shepherding.

 

Half Truths by: Adam Hamilton

Thursdays 6:30 – 7:30 PM, Library

September 27 – November 1

Led by: Pastor Sherri

They are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might find in the Bible.  We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join Pastor Sherri for this six-week study as we search for the whole truth by comparing these common Christian sayings with the wisdom found in Scripture.
