ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS SCHEDULE
The Adult Sunday School class is studying Mark Scherer’s "The Journey of a People: The Era of Reorganization, 1844 to 1946." This coming Sunday, the class will discuss Chapter 20 (“Supreme Directional Control”). Jonathan Bacon will lead the class discussion.
COMING IN OCTOBER
The Adult Sunday School class voted overwhelmingly to study The Secret Message of Jesus: Uncovering the Truth that Could Change Everything by Brian D. McLaren. In the book, McLaren invites the reader to discover afresh the transforming message of Jesus – an open invitation to radical change, an enlightening revelation that exposes shame and ignites hope, an epic story that is good news for everyone, whatever their gender, race, class, politics, or religion.
Copies of the book are and the class will start on Sunday, October 18, 2015. The book cost is $15.50 for the paperback (which includes taxes); a savings over the retail price of $15.99. If you want a copy, contact Jonathan Bacon. The cost of the book should be added to your Sunday offering with a notation that it covers the cost of the book.
