The 2017-2018 ministry year focuses on formation. We are formed in Christ, with others in community, and for the good of our city.

Class Description

Advent: Christmas is coming!
Advent is the Latin word for “coming.” It begins four Sundays before Christmas. For the weeks of Advent we look back at Christ's first coming and look ahead to His return. This class helps us remember what Christ did for us while also reminding us of a day when He will return again to make everything right. Shalom will come through our Prince of Peace, Mighty God, Wonderful Counselor, and Everlasting Father.

How to Read the Bible
A deep and rich understanding of the Bible is not just for seminary trained scholars and pastors. Rather, the Bible is accessible to everyone. This class will provide insights that will help clarify misconceptions and equip you with the tools necessary to interpret and apply Scripture to your life.

Practicing Rhythms for a Thriving Spiritual Life
This course is designed to develop practices that heighten our attentiveness to God’s will and ways. We will look at our normal “schedule” and identify what we love and value, in order to create new routines that are both sustainable and life giving. We will explore how the five “starter practices” of 2017-2018—worship, devotion, hospitality, accountability and rest—can become regular habits that shape our lives. This course is team-taught by Lyn Cook and Caitlin Brock and meets in Hunter College on select Sundays.
