ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL MAY-JUNE
CLASS: CARDS AND CARING HANDS
Cards and Caring Hands Class is a participation class that is different from the other Sunday School classes. Members are invited to come and fellowship with others while working on their favorite creative craft.
(Some members enjoy knitting while others like to quilt or make cards. The class has several special mission projects throughout the year. One project is to make blankets, hats, scarves and quilts to give to the homeless in our area. Another wonderful project is to birthday, anniversary and special occasion cards. They then deliver them to members in our congregation on their special day. You are welcomed to come and join in on the fellowship this Spring Quarter!

CLASS: COOPERATIVE SALVATION
LEADER: DAVID SMITH
ROOM: OLD FELLOWSHIP HALL
Why did Jesus die? What does it mean that Jesus dies for our sins? Christian theology has been wrestling with these questions for centuries, and theologians have proposed lots of different answers and explanations in the form of theories of atonement. The Church of the Brethren is well known for its acts of service in the nonviolent model of Jesus, but it has not produced much constructive theology. Cooperative Salvation attempts to remedy this situation by proposing a constructive Brethren model of atonement. Come study the book, Cooperative Salvation and discuss Brethren theology, historical Anabaptist theology and how we can incorporate the new.
LIVES OF GREAT CHRISTIANS
LEADER: STEVE GILLESPIE
“This class is a continuation of the class offered last fall.”
The Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; even to the end of the age.” Matthew 13:52
The followers of Jesus, who came to be called Christians have practiced their beliefs for centuries. Their actions and achievements, their abilities and energies, have changed the course of history and the nature of belief. Many are well known, but many more are obscure or even nameless. As you hear and learn about their lives you will learn what Christians believe, how that belief has shaped world history and what these stewards of faith can tell us today!
