Adult Elective Sunday School Classes (March 1 – May 31, 2020)
Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad
Facilitator: Jeremy Shue Location: Room 1
*This class was limited to 12 people and is currently full.
Based on the viral Instagram challenge that captivated participants worldwide, Me and White Supremacy takes readers on a 28-day journey of how to dismantle the privilege within themselves so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.
Justice and the Prophets – Bible Study #2
Facilitator: Dan Haarer Location: Room 2
This study focuses on justice as presented in scriptures from the prophets in the Old Testament. The prophets communicated God’s will to the people. They called for repentance and justice. Come see how the messages of the prophets still apply to us today. All are welcome to join the class!
Men’s Class: Ten Men of the Bible by Max Lucado
Facilitator: Randy Christophel Location: Room 3
The men depicted in the Bible were not perfect by any means. We find story after story marked by scandal, failure, and intrigue. Yet we also find many stories of men who were able to look beyond their circumstances, completely trust in the Lord, and follow Him wherever He chose to them.
Justice and the Prophets – Bible Study #1
Facilitator: Gail Shetler Location: Room 6/7
This study will focus as it is shared by the prophets from the Old Testament. It will be broken into three units of what God requires of us, how God promises a just kingdom, and how we are called to work for justice. Come for a time to learn with each other. Oh, and don’t forget the ever popular “Question of the Day”!
Women’s Class: Invited: The power of hospitality in an age of loneliness
Facilitator: Fran Bontreger Location: Room 9
In Invited, writer Leslie Verner says real hospitality is not having a Pinterest-perfect table or well-appointed living room. True hospitality is not clean, comfortable, or controlled. It is an invitation to enter a sacred space together with friends and strangers. Invited will empower you to open your home, get to know your neighbors, and prioritize people over tasks. Holy hospitality requires more of Jesus and less of us. It leads not only to loving the stranger but to becoming the stranger. Welcome to a new kind of hospitality.
