Embracing an Adult Faith Lenten Study: Begins Sunday, Feb. 18 after worship

The goal of this study is to offer adult learners, “opportunities to engage the questions of faith that are most pressing for them today”. There are five sessions covering the following topics: God, Jesus, Salvation, Practice, and Community. Each session will begin with a 20-25 minute video introduction to the topic by New Testament scholar Marcus Borg, followed by a small group conversation.

Because this is a video-based course, it will be offered in-person only (copyright limits what can be used on virtual platforms such as Zoom). Sessions will be held after worship, starting Sunday, February 18. The dates for the sessions are as follows:

  • Sunday, February 18
  • Sunday, February 25
  • Sunday, March 3
  • Sunday, March 10
  • Sunday, March 17

Please purchase the companion book of the same title (Embracing an Adult Faith); it is available for $16. If you need help purchasing the book, please contact Mike or JulieThe book contains a few questions or simple activities to engage ahead of each session, as well as the discussion material.

Please indicate your intention to participate by contacting the Church Office by phone (909-622-1144) or email.

A donkey stands in the background behind the man from Jericho, and a jug sits in the background behind the Good Samaritan. The sculpture appears to be affixed to a building near where the two sides of the roof meet. Image via Pixabay.
