GREAT ROOM CLASS –LIFE’S ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS
Sundays 9:30am – Great Room (Basement, just off of the nursery in the Children’s Area)

For all ages. Meets in the Great Room with the comfortable couches, downstairs, just off the Church Nursery. Leader is Douglas Ensminger.  It’s a comfortable class, as well… we study a passage from the Bible and think together about what it means for us. Each class stands alone. Come any Sunday you are available. November’s study will focus on the Bible passage used in that morning’s sermon, with special emphasis on the importance of each reading for our church and world.


KERYGMA – PASTOR’S CLASS 
Wednesday Mornings 10:30 to 11:45am in the Library  (1st Floor Education Building)
Wednesday Evenings 6:30-7:30 Johnston Parlor (1st Floor off the Sanctuary)

A new class will be offered for 2 weeks beginning November 8th. Perhaps you have wondered why there are differences in the way people think about moral choices and moral development.  Moral reasoning is closely related to one’s stage of cognitive development.  In this two-week class we will discuss cognitive developmental stages (week 1) and moral reasoning stages (week 2) as well as the factors that promote growth in each of these domains.  Greg Harper will be teaching this series.  There is no Kerygma on November 22, but class resumes on the 29th.
