Pastor's Study: Who Am I?

8 Weeks
Led by Senior Pastor Josh Vaughan
Cost: Free

Room 313
 
It’s a question we face over and over again. Whether we are emerging into adulthood, building a marriage or family, transitioning after the loss of a loved one, or reorienting after great success…or failure…in our career, we wrestle with this one question. Who Am I? In this interactive series, we explore different paths to form identity from Elsa in Frozen to Tevya in Fiddler on the Roof and to Jesus in the New Testament. Along the way, we face pressing issues such as sexual identity, family formation, and healing from wounds inflicted by those we trust. Join the journey and find a lasting answer to the big question, Who Am I?

Ladies' Study:
Exodus - Part 1
by Jen Wilkins

11 weeks
Led by Karen Baldwin
Cost: $5
Room: 315

 
Alert: The Bible study you are about to begin may be different than studies you have done in the past. It will not have poetry or stories that leave you laughing, crying, or inspired.  It will not focus on answering the question “What does the Bible say about me?” It will not aid you in self-discovery, at least not as its primary intent. What it will do is teach you an important passage of the Bible in a way that will stay with you for years to come. It will challenge you to move beyond loving God with just your heart to loving Him with your mind. It will focus on answering the question “What does the Bible say about God?” It will aid you in the worthy task of God-discovery.  Sign up now to be a part of this powerful, women’s Bible study.

Learning Sign Language in Song and Scripture

8 Weeks
Led by Becky Patrick & Columbus Avenue Deaf Ministry
Cost: Free
Room: 308
Join leaders in our historic Columbus Avenue Deaf Ministry as they share the basics of American Sign Language. You may have seen the depth and heart involved in worshiping by signing and now you can learn how.  Each week we will learn the vocabulary to sign a Bible verse and perhaps even a worship song or hymn and gain confidence in communicating with others through ASL. Love your neighbor sometimes looks like being able to sign good morning, how are you? to our deaf members. Then watch them smile in appreciation!

Expect a fun and relaxed time as we learn to share a new language in worship and in our spiritual life. This class will be very introductory and is your chance to get excellent instruction. All adults, deaf and hearing, are welcome! Be careful, you might just decide to change your Sunday morning worship seating location.

Making Sense of the Bible 
Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes

8 weeks
Led by Exec. Pastor Danny Walker
Cost: $10 for book
(optional)
Room 226
Do Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible? For instance: When Western readers hear Paul exhorting women to "dress modestly," we automatically think in terms of sexual modesty. But most women in that culture would never wear racy clothing. The context suggests that Paul is likely more concerned about economic modesty--that Christian women not flaunt their wealth through expensive clothes, braided hair and gold jewelry.
We’ll identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. Getting beyond our own cultural assumptions is increasingly important for being Christians in our interconnected and globalized world. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.
