Join us on Wednesday evenings starting on September 13. We will meet together for a meal at 5:30 pm and then break into various class opportunities for children, youth, and adults. The cost for a meal is $6.50 per adult and $4 per child ($20 per family max).
One of the things we need for our Wednesday night meals are groups willing to be responsible to be the dinner host for that evening.
It is a wonderful way to raise a little money for your favorite mission area, and it provides a much needed and very welcomed service to your church family. It’s also a fun way to build community within your own small group. Please contact Barbara Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-638-5711 to schedule a date for your group. The best dates – and menus - go fast so call soon !

REEL SPIRITUALITY: EXPLORING FILM THROUGH THE LENS OF FAITH LED BY PASTOR ERIC AND JOHN HALL * What role does film play in our faith? How can Christians watch visual media with wisdom and grace, noticing both connection and dissonance between God's story and the stories of pop culture? Visual we will examine how to view film through the lens of faith and notice where Christ may be present. Oct 11th –Nov. 15th * Room 202 Family Life Center.
THE JESUS CREED: LOVING GOD, LOVING OTHERS BY SCOT MCKNIGHT LED BY PASTOR BRYAN
In this study we will look at what spiritual formation would have looked like during Jesus’ day using this wonderful book by Scot McKnight. When Jesus was asked by a religious scribe where to begin one’s life in spiritual formation, Jesus shared with him what we know as the Great Commandment. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Leviticus 19:18, Mark 12:28-31). The principle of Christian spiritual formation is that a spiritually formed person loves God and loves others. This is a great introduction to the Christian spiritual life with many rich insights for wherever you are in your journey with Jesus.
The lessons follow this pattern:
Session 1: The Jesus Creed
Session 2: Do You Need a New Beginning?
Session 3: What Has God Called You to Become?
Session 4: How is God Calling You to Compassion
Session 5: What Kind of Society Should Christians Make?
Session 6: Yes, Disciples Fail … Living the Jesus Creed.
Along with the reading for each week, the participants will memorize the Great Commandment and include it as a part of their prayer life for the duration of the study. Oct 11th –Nov. 15th in the Wesley Room.
NURSERY - Nursery care is provided each Sunday morning from 8:15 until noon and Wednesday evenings in the Family Life Center from 6:30 –7:30 pm..
