Study of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus - Please join Mary Evenson and be ready to study and discuss what these letters have to tell us about Leadership, False Teaching, and Relationships among Believers. We will be meeting in one of the classrooms adjoining the Parish Hall.  

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis - (Julie Hendrix, facilitator) Lewis explores what we value and cherish and how that differs from what Christ calls us to value - questions suggested by this book, among many others: Whom do we honor? How and by whom do we want to be honored? What is heaven and what is hell? (If you don't already have a book, books can be ordered for $8.74 through Julie if you send her a quick email at julia.hendrix@gmail.com)

Studies on Christian Living - 10-week study using Basic Christianity by John Stott. The theme of the book: “We must commit ourselves, heart and mind, soul and will, personally and unreservedly, to Jesus Christ and then go on to take our place as loyal members of the church and responsible citizens in the community. This is basic Christianity.” We look forward to lively discussions and significant spiritual growth. Jim & Peg Dickson, ph. 920-725-8237

Discerning the Will of God - by Henry Nouwen - Fr. John Peterson (facilitator) “Discernment is a spiritual understanding and an experiential knowledge of how God is active in daily life that is acquired through disciplined spiritual practice. Discernment is faithful living and listening to God’s love and direction so that we fulfill our individual calling and shared mission.” “Our God is a God who cares, heals, guides, directs, challenges, confronts, corrects. To discern means first of all to listen to God, to pay attention to God’s active presence, and to obey God’s prompting, direction, leadings, and guidance.” We will be using Nouwen’s book as a guide to the practice of Discernment. Register now so we can reserve a place for you and obtain a book.

Gospel Lesson Discussion - led by Charles Martin. Each Sunday we will discuss various aspects of the Gospel lesson of that day. Don't miss out on the stimulating and challenging discussion! We will meet in Fellowship Hall.
