Pastor Jeff's Lenten Study --
An Introduction to Christianity
-- continues on Tuesday evenings in Lent from 7 - 8:30 p.m.
This study group is open to all and will be
helpful for both those for whom the Christian faith is strange, new
territory, as well for those who have been identifying themselves as
Christians for a long.
Children are welcome; there are supervised
activities provided for them.
Who was the Apostle Paul, and what was his
message? Next to Jesus, Paul shaped how we understand the Christian
faith more than any other.
What is the “grace” of which he so often spoke,
and how did his message influence Martin Luther nearly 1500 years later?
Who was John Wesley and what are
the distinctive qualities of the style of Christianity Wesley started
referred to as “Methodist”?
Why was Wesley so optimistic about the possibility
that we can grow in grace, becoming truly more loving in the course of
our life time?
What is the “Church”? What was life like in the
earliest church, and how did things change when the Roman Emperor
Constantine became a “Christian”?
In what ways do we find ourselves in a position in
society that the Church has not known since before Constantine?
How should Christians in our diverse society
relate to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, etc?
Why was Jesus crucified, and what
do we mean when we say he was raised from the dead?
Why is it important to contemplate the story of holy week before we get
What does his death and resurrection mean for our lives today?
