Soup and Study will begin Tuesday, October 2nd at 6:30pm.
Soup and Study will be studying Living the Questions. This is a DVD series. Each week stands alone and does not depend the previous sessions. This is an informal time of eating together and then watching / discussing the DVD. Living the Questions is a contemporary interpretation of Christianity and the scriptures.
Sometimes it seems as though the scriptures have been interpreted through the same lens since the church came into being. But in reality, throughout the centuries, as the world evolved and changed, so have the ways the scriptures have been interpreted. This has allowed Christianity and the scriptures to remain relevant throughout the ages. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, purposed that our faith system is an interactive system, shaped by Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason. This allows for diversity within the United Methodist Church.
The Soup and Study class which will begin again on Tuesday, October 9th at 6:30 provides an opportunity to have fellowship during a simple dinner of soup and bread. It, also, provides an opportunity to hear and see how some contemporary pastors, teachers, and theologians interpret the scriptures and Christianity in today’s world. We may not always agree with them or each other. But the study offers a way to see how scripture, reason, experience, and tradition may be brought together to make Christianity relevant in our world.
Children’s Sunday School meets during the 10am worship service. Following the children’s sermon, all children are invited to meet at the back of the Sanctuary for Sunday School down the hall in the Chapel.
