Adult Sunday School
Sundays, October 18-November 1 at Salem
Register HERE weekly to attend.
The Christian Church and Scientific Thought led by Dr. Dale Gentry. Scientific research produces a better understanding of God’s creation, but can it also produce a better understanding of God? This four-week course will be spent addressing the perceived conflict between science and Christian faith and considering what we can know about God through studying material creation.
Join us for this class on Wednesday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m.
Contact Kirk Livingston (email@example.com) to receive the Zoom call information.
A City on a Hill—Shining the Light of Christ in Our Community led by Laura Kozamchak. This three-week study will center on what the Gospel of Matthew teaches about becoming people who shine the light of Christ in the community. We will consider how we can shine our light in relationships, places of influence, and in the marketplace. We will discuss how our insights from these passages can inform us as we strive to truly love and bless our communities especially as we face challenges such as the COVID-era, seeking social justice, and election season.
Our next class will be available in-person starting Sunday, November 1, 10:10-10:50 a.m.
Register HERE weekly to attend.
A Holistic Well-being: Conversing with Christian Liberation Theologies led by Dr. Victor Ezigbo on Sundays, November 1, 8, 15, and 22 (in-person at Salem).
Human sufferings impede human well-being. What does the Christian faith, Christian theology, in particular, say about the well-being of human beings? And what does Christian theology offer as a solution to the problem of human sufferings, especially those that are human-induced such as racism, oppressive economic structures, and caste-relations? To answer these questions, we will explore and dialogue with some versions of liberation theologies that have been developed by Christian theologians from India, Peru, and the United States of America.
