The Writings

September 18-19, 2020

Via Zoom

Professor George Heider

The third major section of the Jewish Scriptures (after the Torah and the Prophets) is "the Writings", a grab-bag of books that either didn't fit logically into the first two categories (like "wisdom literature") or were likely among the last written. Yet in this bag are some of the most important books in the Christian Old Testament (like Psalms) and some of the most beloved (like Ruth and Esther). We will look at a section of these books and consider their impact on both the Jewish and Christian traditions.

The Gospel of Mark 

October 9-10, 2020

Via Zoom

Professor Wally Taylor

In the Gospel of Mark, we are always "on the way". But on the way to where? We will explore that question as we survey the gospel and its major themes: good news, kingdom of God, Son of God, passion predictions, misunderstanding disciples, status degradation, and the cross.

Community Catalyst Training

Part I - October 3, 2020

Part II - October 31, 2020

Via Zoom

Pastor David Sprang

Jesus did his ministry in the community. He went to the synagogue on Sabbath, but most of the time he was out with people. And for much of that time, it was people on the margins, people left out, and people shunned. The church as Community Catalyst is learning how to listen to the community, accompany them on their road of life, and help them in need. It means being Jesus' hands and feet in the neighborhood that hears the church bells. This course will encourage congregational leaders to engage their community, give some tools to help listen, and help the congregation use its assets to become stronger partners with its neighbors.

The Gospel of Matthew

November 6-7, 2020

Via Zoom

Professor Wally Taylor

In the Gospel of Matthew, we meet a Jesus who is the great teacher. We will delve into his teachings in the Sermon on the Mount and study who Jesus calls us to be as disciples. We will also see how Matthew connects Jesus with the past (chapters 1-2) and the future (chapter 28).
