A Midweek Opportunity for Everyone

Wednesdays Together is an opportunity for folks of all ages to gather for four evenings of fun, fellowship, and growing in faith.  We will share a meal together (one you won’t have to cook or clean up after!) and nourish our minds and souls through a variety of classes and activities.  Children, youth, and adults can engage in study, creative expression and spiritual growth.  There will be something for everyone!

Classes/Activities for Adults

Prayer and the Spiritual Life

Leader: Steve Hancock  Location: Second Hall

The spiritual life has to do with how God relates to us and how we in turn relate to God. Prayer is the essential expression of this relationship. In this class we will explore some new and ancient ways of cultivating our relationship with God through prayer.

 

Four Rebellious Presbyterians

The stories of Francis MaKemie, John Witherspoon,

Robert Lewis Dabney, and Charles Erdman

Leader: David Dyer  Location: Room 65/66

These four Presbyterian pastors raised issues, confronted controversies, and stood against the common opinions and values of their day to proclaim the Gospel in the Reformed tradition of our land. Their stories can provide inspiration and a time for reflection on what price we are willing to pay for our beliefs.

 

“Cooking with the Bible”

Coordinators: Karen Akin and Malinda Kirchner

Location: “Loaves and Fishes” (Kitchen in Bible Village)

Food was an important facet of biblical life. Our faith and our food are closely bound with our daily living. How much of joy, of sorrow, of love, of memory is marked by feasting and fasting, and has been since time began! How wonderful it is as we turn to the Bible for comfort, for courage, for inspiration, and for fortitude that we find a great deal of concern expressed for our daily food and drink as well. Participants in this class will taste, prepare, and experience food as it was enjoyed in biblical times.
