Antiracism Initiative and Study: For information, please visit our Antiracism Initiative page here.
June Book Club, led by Angela Madden
I'm Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channning Brown is an eye-opening account of growing up Black, Christian, and female that exposes how white America's love affair with "diversity" so often falls short of its ideals. Each Sunday in June at 4 p.m., we will gather to reflect and discern how God is at work in our hearts and community through what we are reading. If you haven't had a chance to meet Angela, she joined Faith in March 2019 and teaches language arts at Rickards High School. She and Phillip have two precious children, Zoe and Jack. This book study is part of our church's continued work in our Antiracism Initiative.
The following Sunday School classes will resume on a date yet to be determined.
Bible in the Parlor: This class reads a chapter or two a week of scripture at home, does some research on their own, and then comes together to "mine the text" and discover what gems they can find. Led in rotation by Skip Forsyth, Roy Youngblood, and Gary Griffin. Meets in the Parlor.
Sunday to Sunday: Class discussions of the lectionary text for the week based on Feasting on the Word, led by Lois Franklin and Joseph Addae-Mensa. Meets in Room 110.
Christian Spirituality with the Black Dog: Group discussion of various books. Meets in the Small Conference Room. Led by Ruth Reynolds.
Mosaic: This class is team taught by Tad David, Melanie Hill, Windy Taylor and Thomas Whitley. They will begin the year studying the book of Mark using the Discover Your Bible curriculum. Meets in Room 210.
Also on Sunday morning:
Centering Prayer: Contemplation, meditation and prayer, led by Pam Leslie, Vicki Weber and Ruth Reynolds. Meets in the Small Conference Room, 9:00-9:25 a.m.
Disciple Fast Track. Join fellow travelers on a year-long commitment to study the Bible cover to cover. We'll jump around based on themes, but when it's all said and done, we'll have looked at a majority of the books to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a disciple of Christ based on scripture. From the creators of Disciple, Disciple Fast Track is designed for the busy life. Participants commit to 12 weeks in the fall and 12 weeks in the spring of 75-minute classes that engage homework, video, and discussion to help develop your faith. Details will be posted here when available.
Already taken a Disciple class? Then Disciple 2 Fast Track might be right for you! Into the Word (Disciple 2) helps readers deepen their understanding of scripture and make connections between what they already know and what they are reading. Each week you will encounter three spiritual disciplines, learn what they are and how you can engage them. The fall semester looks at Genesis and Exodus; the spring looks at Luke and Acts. Watch for sign-up details soon!
