ADULT WEDNESDAY NIGHT OPPORTUNITIES
Ragamuffin Gospel with Pastor Jenn
This book was written for the bedraggled, beat up, and burnt-out. For the sorely burdened who are still shifting the heavy suitcase from one hand to the other. For the wobbly and weak-kneed who know they don’t have it all together and are too proud to accept the handout of amazing grace. For inconsistent, unsteady disciples who cheese is falling off their cracker. For earthen vessels who shuffle along on feet of clay. For the bent and bruised who feel that their lives are a grave disappointment to God. It is for smart people who know they are stupid and honest disciples who admit they are scalawags. Those words written by Brennan Manning are what drew Pastor Jenn to this raw, authentic presentation of grace and gospel. Come join us for 4 weeks as we explore what it means to be a Ragamuffin. Begins October 18. Register here!
Theology of the Reformation with Pastor Jad
500 years ago on October 31st 1517 a Catholic Monk presented a list of grievances to his church. Little did Martin Luther know that this would begin the Protesting Reformers movement which eventually would become a new group of Christians we now call Protestants. This class will be engaging with diverse historical and theological texts as we explore this movement and how it affects us today. Begins November 1. Register here!
What’s Your Story?: God Wishes You More
Understand your life as part of a bigger narrative by seeing it through God’s eyes. This four-session small-group study focuses on the Joseph story (Genesis 37-50), exploring connections between Joseph’s life and the lives of Christians today. Like Joseph, you will understand your significance when you understand how much more God will do through you. UMC pastor Sarah Heath’s What’s Your Story? is an innovative curriculum about how we can all be great in God’s plan. Begins October 25. Register here!
Release. Reset. Re-engage: Understanding Missions at St. Luke’s
The percentage of children who live in poverty in the United States hasn’t changed in over a generation which means what churches, non-profit groups , and the government are doing to alleviate poverty is not working. This class is designed to help participants RELEASE assumptions we have about poverty so that we can RESET our understanding about the causes of poverty, and then RE-ENGAGE in the way we serve and set expectations for sustainable change. Participants will cover the “hidden rules” of class (poverty, middle, and wealthy) and help people from all walks of life to better understand and communicate with people from a diversity of backgrounds based on the work of Ruby Payne. Participants will also gain a better understanding of our community transformation vision, how St. Luke’s understands mission from a United Methodist perspective, what the Bible says about poverty, and asset-based development. This class will meet the requirement for Circles Allies and others interested in serving in relationship-oriented mission ministries. Register here!
