Wednesday Nights @ St. Francis

On Wednesdays, our parish comes together for a midweek opportunity to hear about and celebrate the Good News of God in Jesus.

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.

For information about the children's program, Crossroads, click HERE. For information about the youth program, Solid Rock, click HERE.

Email the church office (info@sfitf.org) to RSVP for dinner or to sign up for one of these classes.

If you know your dinner plans (if, for instance, you know that you are planning to join us for dinner every week, or if you already know which weeks you will be joining us) you may pre-pay online by clicking on this button:

Three classes will be offered during the Spring 2017 Session of Wednesday Nights at St. Francis. There is no cost for these classes, but we are asking for registrations because space is limited:

Making Sense of God Discussion Group with The Rev. Dr. Jady Koch
April 19—May 31  •  6:30—7:45 p.m. in Graves Hall
For 7 weeks, join our Rector, the Rev. Dr. Jady Koch for a discussion of Tim Keller's book Making Sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptical. 

We live in an age of skepticism. Our society places such faith in empirical reason, historical progress, and heartfelt emotion that it’s easy to wonder: Why should anyone believe in Christianity? What role can faith and religion play in our modern lives? In this thoughtful and inspiring new book, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller invites skeptics to consider that Christianity is more relevant now than ever. As human beings, we cannot live without meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice, and hope. Christianity provides us with unsurpassed resources to meet these needs. Written for both the ardent believer and the skeptic, Making Sense of God shines a light on the profound value and importance of Christianity in our lives. 

Books will be available for purchase (cash, check, charge) at the first class. Alternatively, you may purchase books yourself at any bookstore or online.

 

Risky Faith Discussion Group with Liza Koch
April 19—May 31  •  6:30—7:45 p.m. in The Williamson Room
Join Liza Koch for a discussion of Susan Alexander Yates' new book Risky Faith. This discussion will be especially interesting for women in advance of this summer's Women's Retreat...at which Susan will be featured speaker!

How can we walk in the faith that keeps us focused on God in the midst of the hard circumstances life never stops throwing in our path? Where do you find faith like that? Susan Yates takes readers on a journey of renewed understanding and vision to walk in the confidence of a God so much bigger than the challenges we often face. With Risky Faith you can move from defeat to victory, starting today.

Books will be available for purchase (cash, check, charge) at the first class. Alternatively, you may purchase books yourself at any bookstore or online.

 

2 Samuel Bible Study with Dr. Duane Garrett
April 19—May 31  •  6:30—7:45 p.m. in Rooms 201/202
Join Dr. Garrett, Professor of Old Testament at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, as he studies 2 Samuel, 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.
