Living in the Lectionary
Led by Senior Pastor Larry Bethune in the Library
June 4 – July 9
This class will join together to discuss the scripture readings that will guide our worship every Sunday.  Join us as we dive deeply into the text in its context and lean into the spiritual guidance it offers us for today.

The Artist’s Way
Led by Sarah Kammerdiener and Anna Strickland in the North Dining Hall
June 4 – July 9
For most of us, the idea that the creator encourages creativity is a radical thought. We tend to think, or at least fear, that creative dreams are egotistical, something that God wouldn’t approve of for us. After all, our creative artist is an inner youngster and prone to childish thinking. If our mom or dad expressed doubt or disapproval for our creative dreams, we may project that same attitude onto a parental god. This thinking must be undone.” Over the next 6 weeks, we will explore 12 steps to creative recovery and discovery, moving from being someone who not only speaks of God the Creator in a spiritual sense, but to someone who speaks of God as creator in a literal sense too–God as artist.

The Question of God
Led by the Rev. Dr. Van Herd in the Library
July 16 – August 20
The Question of God, explores issues that preoccupy all thinking people today: What is happiness? How do we find meaning and purpose in our lives? How do we reconcile conflicting claims of love and sexuality? How do we cope with the problem of suffering and the inevitability of death? Using Sigmund Freud, a life-long critic of religious belief, and C.S. Lewis, a popular proponent of faith based on reason as guides to the dialogue, you are invited to join the conversation!

Music and Worship
Led by Minister of Music and Outreach Landry Duvall in the North Dining Hall
July 16 – August 20
In this course we will seek to better understand the role of music in the church by examining the development and history of Christian hymnody and its relevance to the modern church. We will also expose ourselves to worship music from other cultures and discuss how we as a church can authentically explore and incorporate cultural diversity in worship, while still remaining true to our own heritage.
