Wednesday Nights @ St. Francis
Wednesday Nights this Fall … Beginning Wednesday, September 5th!
On Wednesdays, our parish comes together for a midweek opportunity to hear about and celebrate the Good News of God in Jesus. We hope you will join us!
We’ll come together for an optional shared meal at 5:45 p.m. and brief worship before we break up into classes at 6:30: the choir rehearses, the youth group goes to the Vicarage, the children go downstairs, and the adults choose an adult education class. The cost of this optional dinner is $8 for adults and youth, $5 for children (toddlers thru 6th grade).
Adult Education Classes to choose from...
- Stories and Lessons from Numbers and Deuteronomy
Led by Duane Garrett, professor of Old Testament interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The pillars of cloud and of fire! Israel refuses to enter Canaan and wanders for 40 years! Moses strikes the rock to get water from it, but in so doing angers God! Balaam and his talking donkey! What Deuteronomy says about human life! And not least, the Shema (Deut 6:4), Israel’s most sacred teaching about God! We will study these and other passages from Numbers and Deuteronomy this fall.
- Creating Community…An eight Week experience in starting a small group.
Led by The Rev. Bob Coon
Why is community so important to your spiritual life? Matthew 18:20 tells us “for where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I with them.” You cannot grow spiritually unless you are connected relationally. God designed us that way. He wants to use other people to grow you and at the same time He wants to use you to grow other people. During this eight-week study (which is designed for new small groups) you will explore how building deep relationships with the people in your group and serving the larger community around you will grow your faith. You will learn why your unique story matters to God and to those people you do life with. Community provides a great opportunity for you to grow in your relationship with God, because life is better when we are connected.
- Parenting Kids in a Social Media World facilitated by Bishop Russ in the Williamson Room
Led by Bishop Russ, please join us as we look at “Connect—Real help for parenting kids in a Social Medial World”. In a social media-center world, the smart phone has become a cultural rite of passage for kids. But is that rite all wrong? How can this generation of parents blaze a new trail to equip their kids to thrive in an ever-changing digital environment while steering clear of the dangers that lurk nearby? Join us for a 3 week series looking at a video by Kirk Cameron.
