The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I am” Sayings of Jesus  Led by Pastor Jim Stender

The God We Can Know is a study designed to explore the “I Am” sayings of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.  This series will help you find and form an answer to the question, “Who do you say I am?”  One by one, Jesus’ statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first “I Am.”  The significant yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.  The themes are:  knowing God’s satisfaction, guidance, care, power, way and possibilities.

The Way of Discernment  Led by Pastor Martha Maier

How do you discover God’s direction for the decisions you need to make?  Come and explore faith practices, scripture, and the wisdom of the spiritual masters as we seek to hear the Holy Spirit’s guidance for our lives and community.  Class books will be available at the church

Even the Stones Cry Out for Justice: Race, Racism and the Church  Led by Vicar Emily Hamilton

Our presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton says, “It has been a long season of disquiet in our country,” as far as racism is concerned.  How can we talk together about race and racism in our community?  What can Christians do to respond to the reality of racism?  How can we at St. Andrew better minister to people of all races and ethnicities?  We will spend 5 weeks considering these and related questions from a biblical foundation.  All are welcome.

The Celebration of Discipline  Led by Vineta Means

We will be discussing the Biblical call to explore scripture and find out how we can incorporate the disciplines outlined in Richard Foster’s book Celebration of Discipline.

The “Outward  Christian Disciplines” are Simplicity, Solitude, Submission and Service.  We will include time to learn how to do these disciplines.  The writings of the author Richard J. Foster have been included to make your time for study at home minimal.  There will be freedom in class to ask questions, discuss, share and care for one another.
