"A Christian who does not know the bible is like someone with tools and does not know how to use them."
- Fr. Carver W. Israel
The Christian Education Committee
The Christian Education Committee has discerned that on Sundays it would be most appropriate to dedicate one full hour for learning and that all activities related to learning or faith formation occur concurrently. So, as previously announced the learning hour will be from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm starting March 6, 2016.
Godly Play (up to age 10) will be held in the Christian Learning Center on the second floor,
Living the Good News (multi-ages) will be held in the Meditation Room located on the balcony and Bible Study will be held in the Chapel. Periodically there will be special presentations
Young people are encouraged to attend service with their families to participate in the Liturgy and receive their blessings/communion.
Don’t forget that the resources of the Christian Learning Center are available on Sundays after service.
We hope that if you have not had an opportunity to join us at one of our learning opportunities that you consider these upcoming activities:
Tuesday, Novemeber 3 - Mahayana Buddest Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Chinatown, holds one golden, 16ft-high Buddha, sitting on a lotus and edged with offerings of fresh oranges, apples and flowers. Mahayana features two giant golden lions for protection. Inside, a simple interior merely serves to amplify the magnificence of its resident Buddha, believed to be the largest in town.
You may see Adrian Simmons for additional information and to register to attend.
Advent Bible Study
The title of this year’s Advent Bible Study is “Jesus Christ – Liberator or Imitator”. The study will examine the social and political context that that created the environment for a ‘messiah’, and the expectations of the Hebrew people of God as they yearn for this ‘messiah’. It will also look at the notion of ‘messiah’ then and now, and explore the question of how this unlikely son of a carpenter father and a field laborer mother came to be revered as “The Messiah”.
The study will be done in four Friday sessions (Nov. 20th, Dec. 4th, 11th, & 18th) beginning at 6:30 PM. Handouts will be made available before each session.
