Sunday Seminars

The Two Sides of Job

The book of Job is one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written. It struggles with some of life’s deepest questions: What is the meaning of suffering? Why do good people suffer? What is God’s relationship to our suffering? Is God its cause? The Church often highlights Job’s steadfast faith in the face of his suffering, but there is another side to Job; one in which he gives voice to his physical pain as well as the spiritual agony of experiencing undeserved suffering.

Join us for Sunday Seminars in November as we explore the complexity of Job’s character and grapple with the questions for which we all desire answers. The class will be held in the Chapel on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and led by Rev. Rex Childs, Associate Pastor.

November 3 – Wisdom & Job
November 10 – The Heavenly Council
November 17 – Job Protests
November 24 – God’s Response

 

Exploring the Birth Narratives

In our celebration of Christmas we often conflate what are two different narratives concerning the birth of our Lord.  We will compare and contrast the accounts of Matthew and Luke to see and appreciate their insights of the coming into the world of "God with us".  Join Bill Crawford for a four week class on the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke.  Classes are held each Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. from November 19 - December 10 in Room 203 of the Mase Education Center.
