November Adult Education

PLANNING AHEAD:  3 SESSIONS

(Nov. 4, 11, 18 at 9:30-10:15am)

It’s not news to anyone that we are living in a time of conflict, division, and disagreement.

In politics, in religion, in education, in relationships and communities and churches, we are becoming people who can’t seem to find our way out of the “us vs. them” pit of divisiveness. It

doesn’t matter who you think is “us” and who is “them.” We are all stuck. And yet we know it doesn’t have to be like this. In the face of cracking communities and strained

family dynamics, the church is uniquely equipped to bring healing, hope, and wholeness to a hurting world. Ours is a faith built on hope, on the belief that we are all created in the image of

God, on the assurance that no person or situation is beyond redemption. We believe faith is not only believing in God, but doing the work of God in the world. We are the shining city on a hill, and

the world needs our light more than ever.  During the month of November, we will learn about the ongoing refugee crisis in our world.

We’ll hear from experts in the fields of refugee resettlement and public policy. We will hear stories from refugees themselves and from the many organizations that walk alongside refugees as they build new lives.

We’ll spend time talking to one another and sharing perspectives on this difficult topic. 

Hope to see you there.  Pastor Christine
