TELLING STORIES OF CAREERS AND THE ROLE OF FAITH IN THEM

Congregation members will tell their stories about work experiences and how their faith has impacted their careers. In each class, a panel consisting of a moderator and three other participants, all of whom have worked in similar employment settings, will talk about their careers. Ever wondered what it’s like to work for a law firm or be a teacher? Here’s your chance to get to know fellow congregation members better and learn about their interesting professions.

  • April 28: Careers in Law Pam Deese
  • May 5: Careers in Education Karen Siple

WHY DO CHRISTIANS THINK THAT?

Many Sundays we repeat the words of various creeds, expressing our beliefs. But why do we believe those things?  We want to ask, but the answers involve “THEOLOGY” or “DOCTRINE” which sound complex.  In this class we will look at four beliefs and discuss how they came to be part of Christian thinking.

  • April 28 – Why do we believe in the Trinity, when the word is never mentioned in the Bible?
  • May 5 – What does the Kingdom of God actually mean?
  • May 12 – God the Father created us and God the Son saves us. What does the Holy Spirit do?
  • May 19 – What happens when we die?

~ CURRENT WEEKDAY CLASS ~

WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY with Bag Lunch

Each WEDNESDAY, a weekly Wednesday Bible Study will be held in the Chapel from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.  The Bible study will generally involve an exploration of the biblical text that will be preached the following Sunday.  The study will usually be facilitated by Rev. Scott Ramsey or whoever will be preaching the next Sunday.

Bring a bag lunch, a Bible, and a curious heart and mind.  We’ll have fun digging into the Scriptures!  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Scott .

ABOUT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AT LEWINSVILLE

Lewinsville offers a variety of classes and special events to guide us during the program year in our individual and corporate journeys of faith, discovery, discernment, and service.

Lively discussions on faith and social issues. Look for our “Faith & Public Policy” classes during select modules during the year.

Probing Biblical and theological study. Each Adult Education module includes a course on the Bible and/or theology.

Life skills and religion and the arts. Our Adult Education classes include one course in this subject area.

Family of Faith Focus. We have an ongoing group of parents who explore what it means and how to raise children in our reformed tradition.

Multiple times and places for learning, including online. Even if you can’t attend all sessions of a class during the 9:45–10:45 hour on Sunday mornings, come when you can. Watch for our annual Lenten Studies program during Lent with a Biblical scholar, our Salzman Lecture each fall, and special Inter-generational events with an education focus.

Faith has been described as belief, commitment, relationship, and mystery. Lewinsville’s adult education program, Christ Care groups, women’s circles, faith and public policy breakfasts, and men’s and women’s retreats are opportunities to explore these dimensions of faith with others.
