ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES

September through November 2017

 

 

49ers’ Class – Uniform Series

Classroom #2                                                                                                         

Teacher: Bob Fritz


God has made major covenants with people on behalf of the earth and the human community.  Beginning with Noah, God promises benevolence toward creation.  Similar commitments were made with Abram, Phinehas and Ezekiel.  Ultimately, the covenant forms the foundation for the coming Messiah and salvation for the world.  Unit 1 of this study celebrates four signs of God’s covenant from Genesis through Ezekiel.  Unit 2 examines covenants in Genesis, Exodus, 2 Samuel and Nehemiah that illustrate God’s partnership with people who respond and obey God’s voice.  Unit 3 draws from covenants recorded in Numbers, 1 Samuel, Jeremiah, Hebrews and 1 Corinthians to study the components of the covenant God makes with the priest Phinehas, and the divine promise to Israel through the prophet Jeremiah.

The Cost of Discipleship

(by Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

Fellowship Hall                                                                                             

Teacher: Joshua Fairfield


This class will continue to explore Dietrich Bonhoeffer's The Cost of Discipleship. This classic text covers Bonhoeffer's careful examination of The Sermon on the Mount and what it takes to follow Christ in a society that increasingly equates Christianity with the institutions of power. Written during the rise of Nazi Germany, and eventually at the cost of the author's own life, The Cost of Discipleship establishes the basic principle that grace is free, but it does not come cheaply. Discipleship comes at a cost, and it is one that Bonhoeffer lays out in a passionate and compelling book.

 

  

You are invited to participate in any of these classes.
