Adult Faith Formation

Sunday Classes

Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 for Adult Faith Formation classes.

Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love by Bishop Will Willimon

Retired Bishop Will Willimon invites us to consider what it really means to love like a Christian. Exploring the Gospel command to love (and not merely tolerate) those considered to be “Other” or outside mainstream Christian culture, Bishop Willimon examines our story, rooted in the faith of Israel and the Christian story and vision. This DVD-based study includes an onscreen conversation with Delia Catalina Ramirez, Deputy Director of The Community Renewal Society In Chicago, Illinois, an organization rooted in a faith-based tradition that empowers people to combat racism and the effects of poverty by providing tools such as objective investigative journalism, organizing and training to civic leaders, community activists, and congregations. It’s a great opportunity to think through what it means to love and value each other as Christ calls us to do.

Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph by Adam Hamilton

Sundays at 9:30am beginning December 3

Joseph provides us a great example of following where God leads even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Like Joseph, we at times encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves and it can be tempting to walk away. This DVD based study provides an opportunity to see/hear the Christmas story in a new way, and consider ways that God may be calling us, too, to take an unexpected turn in our own lives.
