Spring Term 2013 Adult Sunday School Classes
Classes run from March 3 through May 26. There will be no classes on 4/14 (Covenant Sunday) and 5/5 (Congregational Meeting).
- Gospel of Chicago
Coordinator: Kermit Eby
Chicago has a rich history of ethnic migration, religious diversity, a “pluralistic model” of faith systems, missionary zeal and interfaith dialogue. We will explore these traditions, one “Gospel of Chicago”, through a contemporary cultural lens.
Meeting Place: Sanctuary
- Exploring Faith & Baptism
Coordinator: Todd Friesen
A 9-week class for those who wish to explore faith and baptism. We’ll be reading an excellent book—God’s Story, Our Story—that traces God’s salvation story through the entire Bible. Along the way, we’ll be discussing questions like: What is our Anabaptist/Mennonite understanding of the good news of Jesus? What principles guide our reading of the Bible? Why is covenanting with a faith community so important to our spiritual growth?
Meeting Place: Church Office
- Patchwork Place
