Parenting your parents – How can adult children best follow the Biblical command to honor our fathers and mothers? What does that look like as we both, children and parents, move through the life cycle? These and other related questions will be our focus this Sunday, November 1 at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary.
The following week, we will begin a new class that will examine in depth two of the six affirmations of the Covenant which speak to the church. The first one we will examine is the church as a fellowship of believers. The second is the affirmation of commitment to the whole mission of the church. In each case we will examine historical reference points for these affirmations as well as present day applications. One thing is clear from scripture and that is that God’s plan for reaching the world rests with the church and there is no plan B. The church is to be an agent of God’s grace. As the covenant affirmations state: “As Christ’s representative in the world, the Church is to be an agent of grace, entrusted with the message of reconciliation, hope, justice, and peace.”
The class will meet at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary. It will run from November 8 to the end of December.
