Advent Film School - In Acts 17, Paul speaks to the people of Athens and leads them to Jesus. How does he do this? He uses a piece of contemporary and secular culture that had NOTHING to do with Jesus and yet, God uses Paul and people come to know Jesus as Lord. Film School uses this model. And during Advent (Dec 3, 10, and 17) people of all ages are invited to Film School as we view The Nativity Story. Join us downstairs at 9am for scripture, conversation, and film discussion... all pointing to Jesus.

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.  

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.
