Adult Bible Study

You’ll see that there are several options for classes and workshops for adults this fall, focused on Bible Study and spiritual practice. I hope you’ll choose the things that resonate with your spiritual needs and mark your calendars now so you can make those growth opportunities a priority.

We’ll also formally introduce a slightly-altered Sunday morning schedule, which will begin on 9/16). We’ve added a 10:30 Adult Sunday School class to the schedule so that children, youth, and their parents (and other adults) can all go to Sunday School at the 10:30hour. This means a few things:

  1. Sunday School for children and youth will now begin right at 10:30 instead of young people beginning the hour in worship and then leaving after the children’s time. Children will check in and go to the choir room. Youth will check in and go to the annex. Grown-ups will go to Sunday School in the Talbert conference room. Folks not attending Sunday School will go to worship!
  2. Families with children are encouraged to worship together at 9:00. We’ll have children’s time during the 9:00 service and kids in preschool to 5thgrade will be invited to leave the service during the sermon time for Children’s Music with Andrew and Melissa. So if you have young people in your life, you’ll be able to worship together for most of the service, then grown-ups can experience the sermon time on their own while kids have a great time learning music that will encourage their faith. Kids will come back to the service when their music time is over.

Alpha Group

Starts When: January 13th, 2019

Where: Talbert Building

Time: 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Friends in Faith

The Alpha Course is a fun and easy way to discuss the basics of Christianity and what gives meaning to your life.

Is there more to life than this?   Who is Jesus?   How Does God Guide us?

These are just 3 of 15 questions that the Alpha experience addresses.  I just finished the course and am on fire to share with you food, fellowship, fun and life-enhancing discussions.   The format is casual gathering, lunch together, fascinating ~30-minute video, followed by smaller group discussions.  Good news – no home-work and no preparation required.  Warning, though:  you very likely will be thinking a lot about the topics in the weeks following. We will use the new Alpha Film Series, so if you have already taken Alpha, come back and lead.  Faith will offer Alpha each Sunday starting 13 January 2019, with a 12-noon gathering, followed by lunch, video, and discussion until about 2 PM.  You likely want to know more, so please catch Bill Tuttle, Susan Appleton, or Kathryn Aitcheson to ask about their Alpha experiences.  Check it out on-line, as well:

The course includes:
• a delicious catered dinner (free),
• a 30-minute video
• time to discuss the video in a small supportive group setting.
• No homework!
• No preparation needed!

The course also includes a special day – TBD

I hope you and your friends outside of Faith Church will join us. This is a wonderful way to invite friends to explore what Christianity is.
