Creed: A Lenten Study – We’re used to answers popping up on a screen right in front of us. But when the questions examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life, finding the answers takes more than simply typing a few words and pushing a button. Adam Hamilton believes that powerful answers to many of our complicated questions are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In Creed, we explore not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe, and why it matters, which in turn leads readers to confront and examine their own core beliefs and go beyond reciting the Creed’s familiar words. Location: AE107; Facilitated by Andrew Polk
Lessons with Pastor Ed – Pastor Ed Salvant continues his lecture series. As the class continues, Pastor Ed will show more of the wonders enclosed in the Word of God. His many decades of experience shed a light on the scriptures that few scholars have known. Come and have your eyes opened to a depth of meaning that can change the way you see the world around you . Location: AE105.
A Liturgy, A Legacy, and a Church Called Hope – Ever have questions about the details of what is taught in the worship service? Ever have questions about Hope and how to get involved? This class will help you to understand more about both. Our elders and deacons will take turns teaching this class. Come and learn more about the lessons of the liturgy and more about our home called Hope. Come and learn what you can do to help with the legacy that this church leaves behind. Location AE106; Facilitated by Hope’s Elders and Deacons.
