“If you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way, then you will find your joy in the Lord!” -Isaiah 58:13,14

Sunday School Classes for all ages (children – adult)  9:30 – 10:15 a.m.

Adult Sunday School Classes:

The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot:  A New Look at the Betrayer and the Betrayed 
by Bart Ehrman.
This class will focus on Ehrman’s book, which describes how he first saw the Gospel of Judas--and recounts the fascinating story of where and how this ancient papyrus document was discovered, moved around among antiquities dealers in Egypt, the United States, and Switzerland, and came to be restored and translated. Ehrman, a prolific author and professor of New Testament studies at the University of North Carolina, gives the reader a complete and clear account of what the book teaches and shows how it relates to other Gospel texts–both those inside the New Testament and those outside of it, most notably, the Gnostic texts of early Christianity.  The Gospel of Judas presents an entirely new view of Jesus, his disciples, and the man who allegedly betrayed him. It raises many questions for which Ehrman provides illuminating and authoritative answers, in a book that will interest anyone curious about the New Testament, the life of Jesus, and the history of Christianity after his death.

Psalms, Then and Now
Psalms is one of the most beloved books of the Bible, and most Christians know by heart all or parts of individual psalms. The psalms feel very familiar and we are comfortable with them. It may be, however, that the Psalms are more complex than we generally think. In this class we take a deep dive into Psalms. We seek to understand when, why, and by whom the psalms were written and edited, as well as the role they played in ancient Israel and in Christianity over the last two thousand plus years. We wish to emphasize what the psalms can mean for us today, as individuals and as a congregation. The class will be organized by Walter Brueggemann’s three-fold typology of Psalms: Orientation, Disorientation, and Reorientation (or, New Orientation).
Led by: Richard Ashmore and John Galbraith

Parenting in the Pew
Join us as we discuss children in church. Sunday mornings aren’t a success if we have only managed to keep the kids quiet. Children are at church for the same reason as Mom and Dad: for the privilege of worshiping God. With infectious passion, nitty-gritty advice and a touch of humor, we will learn how we can help our children (from toddlers to teenagers) enter into worship.
