The Walk: Five Essential Practices of Christian Life, by Adam Hamilton

Led by Rev. Beth Irwin

In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith. If you need a copy of the book, please let us know at your RSVP. Class duration: 6 weeks.

Acts: Catching Up with the Spirit, by Matthew L. Skinner

Led by Rev. Jennifer Bailey

In the Bible, the Book of Acts illustrates God’s grace at work in the world through the lives of the Apostles. In this study, the author explores six key themes that illustrate the ways in which reading Acts is capable of igniting our imagination about the character of the Christian message, the work of God’s people (the church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and changing world. Class duration: 6 weeks.
