December 25, 2014
We have three classes for Adults in Bible Study, Mission and Current Issues:
In the Chapel we will begin a five week series on Mission, as we hear from several of the First Presbyterian Mission teams who have returned from the mission field this spring and summer. The first Sunday will be a report from Kyle Kittrell on the mission trip to Malawi. I will be facilitating the Chapel Class. See below for a Chapel Class Schedule.
In the McAfee Room, we will study portions of Paul’s writing to the Corinthians as we explore “Christian Priorities.” The class is taught by Tom Holt and Vicki Schildmeyer with insights from long-time teacher David Harrison.
In the Children’s Library upstairs, we will explore how current issues are informed by our faith. Jim McAdams and Cynthia Quetsch will guide the lively discussion.
