Adult Spiritual Formation Groups
SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES — 9:00 am
Summer Adult Classes will focus on Martin Luther, in anticipation of the 500th anniversary of his nailing the “95 Theses” on the Wittenburg Church door in 1517 and the impacts he made on the church that continue to resonate today. “His writings on the authority of Scripture reformed Christian theology and reshaped the Christian family. Pastor, teacher, reformer, Luther is a major historical figure and Christian thinker who continues to inspire and provoke us to examine the Scriptures for Christ centered living today.
Adult Class #1: meets in the Chapel. Enriching and engaging themes are led by different presenters from the reformation teachings of Luther– exploring both their impact in the 16th century and their relevance for Christians today.
Adult Class #2: meets downstairs in the “Living Room.” This is a small discussion group reflecting on the book The Roformation: History in an Hour by Edward Gosselin, which examines “one of the greatest upheavals of the Western world…and concludes with an analysis of how the Reformation helped launch the modern age.
