Most Sundays, 9-10 am, September--May
Sundays, 9 – 10 am | December 9 – 16 | Parish Hall
The Rev. Joanna Leiserson, Transition Priest at Christ Episcopal Church
In this brief series, “Lo, He Comes! But How?” we will discuss the meaning and implications of both Jesus’ first and so-called Second Coming, as well as how to be mindful not to slip into the dangerous belief of “supersessionism,” the idea that Christianity fulfills, supersedes, and thus replaces Judaism and that Jewish people are no longer part of God’s plan.
Sundays, 9 – 10 am | September 16 – October 21 | Parish Hall
Dr. Larry Welborn, Professor of New Testament and Early Church History at Fordham University will offer a series titled, “The Lessons of the Wilderness.”
Series Description: In the present moment, many Christians feel that they are “in the wilderness”: church membership is declining and Christian values are vanishing from the public square. In the Biblical tradition, the people of God have often found themselves in the wilderness. The wilderness has lessons to teach: Israel learned to shun idolatry and flee immorality; Jesus learned radical obedience to God; the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews learned perseverance in faith; John of the Apocalypse learned that God saves. Come and learn the lessons of the wilderness.
Our Sunday morning Adult Forum is designed for people who want to grow in their understanding of the Bible, theology, Christian mission, and how to relate their faith to contemporary life and issues. Joining in community, the Adult Forum gathering helps us learn how to hear the voice of God and act on it. It is a time for character formation and developing our relationship with God. We hope the information learned will penetrate our hearts and encourage a close relationship with God, and each other.
Adult Forum meets most Sunday from 9-10 am (September – May) in the Parish Hall.
