“SENT – DELIVERING THE GIFT OF HOPE AT CHRISTMAS” Leader:  Pastor Jim Carlson, in the sanctuary

“SENT” is a four-week video series in which we will explore what it means for Christ to be sent by God into our lives and can reflect in turn on how we might be sent into the world as the hands and feet of Christ.  We will hear stories and perspectives from five different Christians that encourage us to explore our own life stories and reflect on the unique way each of us approaches the journey of faith.

Beginning January 10, 2016:

Join Richard Heller in the Parlor for the next 3 weeks for a discussion of various topics.

January 10 – “Jacob and His 12 Sons: The Original Dysfunctional Family” There are many good examples of strong families in the Bible that we may wish to emulate, but the tale of Jacob and his 12 sons contains a lot of cautionary examples. Grandson of Abraham and son of Isaac, Jacob was selected to serve as another patriarch of the Jewish people. However, Jacob’s favoritism towards his second wife Rachel and her son Joseph led to much jealousy and animosity.

January 17 – “A History of African-American Baptists” Richard Heller attended a Baptist History class last fall and was asked to prepare a paper. For that paper, he chose to explore the history of the Baptist faith among the African-American community. About 45% of the Baptist population in the United States is African-American, including a substantial portion of the American Baptist Churches USA. Richard will discuss these and other facts he learned from his research.
