February 24th – April 7th
Exploring the Apostles’ Creed
What is this statement we repeat in our worship called the “Apostles’ Creed?” What does it say about our faith? Am I required to believe it to be a Christian? Was it really written by Jesus’ apostles?
It is said that the Apostles’ Creed is a living link that takes us over centuries to the Early Church, a bond that unites believers today from diverse cultures and traditions, and a concise summary of Biblical faith taught to new believers in the Early Church prior to their being baptized.
What do you say it is? How does our affirmation of this statement function in our lives today? Come and join us for this video, discussion, and study series as we explore the foundations of our faith. This class will take place on Sunday mornings from 10:15am – 11:00am and will be led by Jim Zazzera.
Life Groups are small groups of people committed to meeting regularly to grow together in their Christian faith. A typical Life Group meeting will include Bible study (based on the Sunday morning sermon), fellowship, and prayer. Put simply, it’s a time for friends to seek together how to apply God’s Word to their daily lives. There are currently over 20 Life Groups meeting weekly. For information about joining or forming a group, please contact Adult Education Walter Newport or any one of our pastors. Read what our Life Groups leaders and participants think of their Life Groups. Learn about some misconceptions about Life Groups.

Adult Discussion Group
2‐3pm, the first Wednesday of each month ‐ This monthly book discussion is a lively engagement with a current writer’s reflection on life and faith. This year we will be reading a book by Richard Rohr called Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the two Halves of Life. Rohr is a Franciscan priest who seeks to help us to understand the tasks of the two halves of life and teaches us that those who have failed, or gone down are the only ones who can really understand ‘up.’ Those who have somehow fallen, and fallen well, are the only ones who can grow spiritually and not misuse ‘up.’ What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as ‘falling upward!’
