Wednesday Nights @ St. Francis
The Fall 2017 slate of Wednesday Night Offerings began on September 6th
On Wednesdays, our parish comes together for a midweek opportunity to hear about and celebrate the Good News of God in Jesus. We will kick up our fall classes on September 6th. We hope you will join us!
At 5:45, the parish meets for a communal dinner. At 6:30, we break up into classes: the choir rehearses, the youth group goes to the Vicarage, the children go downstairs, and the adults choose between several adult education options. See below for details.
Email the church office (email@example.com) to RSVP for dinner or to sign up for one of these classes.

A New Kind of Apologist Book Study
facilitated by The Rev. Dr. John D. Koch, Jr. in Rooms 201/202, 6:30-7:45 p.m.
Jady will lead a discussion based on this Sean McDowell book. A New Kind of Apologist is the go-to resource for effectively defending the Christian faith in our changing culture. In this book, you'll discover important topics often ignored by apologists, such as transgender issues, religious freedom, and the intersection of economics and apologetics; a new kind of apologetics that is relational, gracious, and holistic; interviews with both seasoned apologists and skeptics, providing insights into how to do apologetics effectively in today's culture; and adopts fresh strategies for reaching those who are outside the church with the truth of the gospel.
2 Samuel Bible Study
facilitated by Dr. Duane Garrett in Graves Hall, 6:30-7:45 p.m.
2 Samuel tells the story of the reign of David after the death of Saul. It contains memorable but tragic stories, including the Bathsheba affair, the rape of Tamar, the rebellion of Absalom, and the conflict between David and his military commander, Joab. As we follow David, we will see how his trials speak to us. We will also address some thorny problems, such as why a man with the moral problems we see in David could be “the man after God’s own heart” and “the psalmist of Israel.” We will look at the census in 2 Samuel 24, and determine why this was regarded as a great sin. Along the way, we will reacquaint ourselves with many Bible stories and historical tidbits.
