New for Fall 2017
Invitation to the Old Testament
Wednesdays • 6:30-8:00pm • September 6 – November 1
Are you looking for a Bible study that would give you an overview of the Old Testament and a great foundation for reading the Bible? Then Invitation to the Old Testament is for you! In 9 weeks you will survey the major themes and read the most significant passages of the Old Testament. Part of the Disciple Bible series, Invitation offers the opportunity for meaningful Bible study through reading, DVD presentations in class, and thoughtful conversation with other adults around the table. Led by Dave Platt.
Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy
Thursdays • 6:30-8:00pm • September 7 – November 9
“Praise be the heavens, just when we think the world is teetering off a cliff, Anne Lamott, high priestess of side-splitting spiritual insight and religion with a chaser of irreverence, leaps onto the dire scene, weighing in on mercy, a commodity that sometimes seems on the brink of extinction.” So begins the review of Anne Lamott’s newest book, in the Chicago Tribune. Take 10 weeks to reflect on how/where to find, and offer, radical kindness in the world. Led by Scott Groth.
The Salvation of Dr. Who
Sundays • 6:00-7:30pm • September 24 – October 22
Explore the intersection of faith and science through the lens of Doctor Who, a beloved television sci-fi series filled with action, humor and tenderness. If you have ever wanted to fly in the TARDIS, stand up to the Daleks or more deeply explore the nature of God in time and space, then this series from Matt Rawle may be for you. With topics like “Bigger on the Inside,” “God and Time and God’s Time,” “The Oldest Question in the Universe,” and “The Sonic Screwdriver Is Mightier Than the Sword,” this five-week study has something for the Whovian in everyone. Led by Shawn Mulkey.
