#1 Kingdom Ethics: Living Virtuously as Citizens of God's Kingdom
(Taught in the fellowship hall by Kyle Keating)
Using the Ten Commandments as our guide, this class will examine what it looks like to live virtuously as citizens of God's Kingdom in our increasingly post-Christian world. We'll take the principles derived from the commandments and put them to use considering a variety of concrete, real-world questions as varied as: Is it okay to draw images of Jesus? Should you take a job that requires you to work on Sundays? Should someone transition from one gender to another? Come join us for in depth discussions of these questions and more!
#2 Unexpected Ways to Care
(Taught in the lounge by Justin Schlueter)
When someone we know is experiencing a difficult time, we naturally want to care for them—but how can we be sure we’re offering the kind of care they need most? Drawing on research and interviews with nearly a thousand people across the continent, Stephen Ministries has identified several unexpected but powerful ways to care. This engaging and interactive course, led by Rev. Justin Schlueter, will give you new insights and skills to care in ways that people truly welcome and appreciate.
