Sunday Morning Faith Formations

Coed Adult Bible Study
Paul’s letter to the church in Rome is simultaneously considered one of the most theologically dense books of the New Testament, and the clearest summary of our Christian faith. Join us for a coed adult bible study on three Sundays this fall (Oct. 20, 27 and Nov. 10) as we explore this letter together. The Bible study will be held in the Anderson Library from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Childcare will be provided on the Youth Floor and light refreshments will be served. All are invited.

Lecture Series: Israel Journeys
Helen Lynch and Kimberly Purvis – Sunday, Oct. 20, at 9:45 a.m. in the Living Room
Join Helen Lynch and Kimberly Purvis as they provide an eyewitness account of Israel and Palestine. In March 2019, they traveled to Israel with Embrace the Middle East, a British group dedicated to assisting in the resolution of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. During their travels in the West Bank and elsewhere in Israel, they visited with Palestinians, met with groups actively assisting the Palestinian population and spoke with Jewish settlers. Helen and Kim will present their views on the current conflicts in Israel–past, present and future.
 
Rabbi Charles Savenor – Sunday, Oct. 27, at 9:45 a.m. in the Living Room
Join Rabbi Charles Savenor as he brings us Israel from a Jewish perspective, while highlighting his synagogue’s historic trip to Israel in December 2018 to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the State of Israel. The largest single synagogue trip in history, this multigenerational journey had 450 synagogue participants. He will use this trip to Israel as a vehicle to discuss Jewish values and connection to Israel, while tying it to Israel’s past, present and future.
 

Lecture Series: Jewish/Christian Interfaith Dialog – Sunday, Nov. 3 at 9:45 a.m. in the Living Room
Join Tehilah Eisenstadt to learn how someone raised as an Orthodox Jew began to reclaim her spiritual connections when her love for Jewish text and ritual was strong but prayer felt fruitless. It was in meeting Christian and Muslim siblings in faith that allowed prayer and text study to come alive in new ways. Come join the journey as we explore, post-Jewish Holiday month, the notion of forgiveness. Jews focus on forgiveness around Yom Kippur, Christians talk about forgiveness year-round. What can we learn from each other? Bring your wisdom and experience and questions. Tehilah will bring some Jewish texts on the topic and we will provide New Testament verses.
