The Searchers Sunday School

The Searchers, our in-person Sunday School class that meets in the Parlor every Sunday morning at 9, will continue throughout the fall.  The topic will be the Psalms, both individually and collectively.  It will primarily be self-lead, with references to the LifeGuide study on the same topic.  The class begins September 11. Everyone is welcome.

Los Compadres Adult Sunday School Class is currently meeting only by Zoom to accommodate our out of town members and is studying Seeing Beyond, Awakening to the Reality of an Interconnected, Evolving World by Clement Allison. The study has completed the historical evolution of Christian doctrine from the Council of Nicea in 325 CE to the present day and is now focusing on 1st and 2nd century sources recently discovered and translated (Gospel of Truth, Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Phillip, and Gospel of Mary) to infer what Jesus was reportedly teaching before the Canonical Gospels were selected. Then we will proceed with Part II, which folds in 20th and 21st-century science and other experiential data to enrich our understanding of Jesus's message. All who are drawn to such a study are welcome and are invited to contact nancy@vandevender.com for the Zoom Link for Sunday from 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM.
