Sunday Mornings (Through May 22, 2016):

Life and Times Class-  Join us as we begin our study of  The Jesus Fatwah:  Loving Our Muslim NeighborsDefinitely a Timely Topic!  This is a DVD & discussion class covering topics such as:  Islam 101; Misconceptions about Islam; Islam in America.   Room 101 at 9:00 am.

Bible Exploration - Join us as we study "Final Words From the Cross" by Adam Hamilton, beginning February 28th.  In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:    

Father Forgive Them 
Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother 
My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me? 
Today You Will Be with Me in Paradise 
I Thirst 
It Is Finished
Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit 

Each chapter begins with the biblical account followed by a first-person story as might have been told from the viewpoint of one of the characters at the cross. Then the chapter explores the meaning of Jesus’ dying words for our lives today.  Join the crowd now and experience the final words from the cross.  Room 207 at 9:00 am.

Wesleyan Class Join us as we continue our study/discussion of The Last Myth - What the Rise of Apocalyptic Thinking Tells Us about America", by Mathew Barrett Gross & Mel Gilles (residents of Moab, UT).   This book explains why apocalyptic beliefs are surging within the American mainstream today.  Tracing the development of our expectation of the end of the world from the beginnings of history through the modern era, and examining the global challenges facing America today, authors Gross and Gilles combine history, current events, and psychological and cultural analysis to reveal the profound influence of apocalyptic thinking on America's past, present, and future.  All are invited to attend and participate.
