RECHARGE ACTIVITIES


ROAD OF DISCIPLESHIP:   Making Disciples through Nurture and Learning

January 2019


Senior Pastor's Midweek Bible Study

Meets from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall  

Leader: Pastor Bill Jones


“FEAR OF THE OTHER,” a five-week study, begins on Wednesday, January 9 & Thursday, January 10. We will use as a guide for this study Bishop Will Willimon’s book and DVD presentations, “Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love.” Is there a distinctively Christian way to engage the “outsider” and “stranger”? Fear of the Other is a subject whose time has come given the divided nature of relationships in the church and the surrounding culture today. In this five-week study participants will explore who they consider the Other to be in their lives and communities and begin regarding the Other from a Christian perspective. For those who would like to read Willimon’s biblically rich and theologically prophetic book, copies will be available from the senior pastor beginning in December. (Reading the book is not required for participation in the class.)


Disciple: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study

Leader: Rev. Helen Casey-Rutland & Rev. David Hindman

The Double Dog Dare Disciple Challenge  

Not everyone is up it, but you may be among those with enough grit, determination, and derring do to spend 17 weeks in January-May reading scripture for 30 minutes on a daily basis and meeting weekly with other brave souls for two hours to dig more deeply into God's Word, to discern where God wants to transform your life for good, grow closer to other in deep community, and become familiar with God's Story as told in the Old Testament (it's a lot more interesting than you think!).


Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study will be co-led by Helen Casey-Rutland and David Hindman. We'll dig deep into the Old Testament for 17 sessions; in the fall we'll take on the New Testament in the same, transformative and challenging way.  Think it's time for you to encounter God through scripture in a systematic and powerful way? We double dog dare you! 


Christianity: The First Four Centuries

Beginning Wednesday, January 9 – January 30

Meets from 6:10 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Leader: Ray Morgan

This class will follow the history of the early Christian movement from the years 30 CE to roughly 480 CE. Initially, the Christian movement resided within greater Judaism. However, conflict soon arose between the beliefs of mainstream Judaism and this new Jewish Christian sect. This conflict resulted in an eventual parting of the ways between what became two irreconcilable belief systems. Then, having separated from Judaism, the Christian movement had to define its doctrinal beliefs. This class will cover the early development of the movement that became Christianity. That coverage will be laid against the relevant unfolding political and military events within the Roman Empire.
