Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Wednesdays at 7:00 PM in the Parlor

The Acts of the Apostles picks up where the Gospels left off, recording the early progress of Jesus’ disciples as they spread the Good News from Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, to the most remote corners of the known world.

Join us on Wednesday evenings as we delve into these stories and discover together what it means to be a witness to the Good News of Jesus in our corner of the world.

Adult Sunday School Classes

The Adult Spirituality team is excited to offer a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth during the Sunday School hour in the coming months.  Please plan to join us each Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:15 in the church parlor as we learn and grow as disciples together. It is a great way to get to know other members of the GPC family – and there’s really good coffee, too!

The Subversive PsalmsPsalms

Angela Hancock

Some of the most beloved passages in the Bible are found in the Book of Psalms, but also some of the most troubling. In this session we will consider both the mountain tops and the valleys we find in the Book of Psalms, and how the difficult passages can be particularly meaningful for Christians in times of trouble.

 


The God We Can KnowI am

The God We Can Know is a study designed for the entire congregation to explore the “I Am” sayings of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. This class will help you find and form an answer to the most essential question in the Christian faith, “Who do you say I am?”

One by one, Jesus’ statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first “I Am.” These significant yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.
