Race, Class, and the Kingdom of God, 201
Building off the Winter Lecture Series, Practices for the Church on Mission, this group will consider more deeply the practice of reconciliation that God initiated in Jesus and that Jesus’ followers are called to emulate in all their relationships. What does it look like for the church of Christ to confess its mistakes and seek forgiveness? What does it take to forgive a person or institution that hurts you? What does genuine reconciliation look like and why is it necessary for the church to lead in this area? Join the conversation during this eight week study led by Matthew Hensley. The group will meet in room 104.
Revelation: Looking Forward, but Living for Today
The book of Revelation has always intrigued believers as mysterious book about the future and how God will finally prevail. While there is much to learn about God’s future promise in Revelation, there is much more to understand for living a faithful, committed life as a Christ follower today. Join this group as they take a deep-dive into the words and witness of Revelation. Led by David Cottrell in room 102.

This study invites men to imagine taking routes untraveled as they follow the story of Lewis and Clark’s quest to find a water route to the Pacific Ocean.

Those interested in leading people and organizations in new directions will enjoy this study led by Pastor Bob Lee. The group will meet in room 116/117.
