Sunday School & Confirmation
We’re so excited to start up in-person Sunday School again! For ages 3 and up,
Sunday School begins at 9:45 AM with our Bible story for the day. We’ll break at 10 AM for music with Ralph Nelson. At 10:15, we return to our classroom for a game or craft and a snack. Confirmation Class also starts on Sept. 11 at 1 PM for youth and parents together. Questions? Please call Pr. Aaron.
Forum: Studying Christian Nationalism
Sundays 9:30-10:30 AM, hybrid format
Christian nationalism is the belief that the United States is, and should be, a Christian nation. This belief distorts both the Christian faith and America’s constitutional democracy. Join us in person in Sodergren Library, 9:30-10:30 on Sundays, or by Zoom.
Starting Oct. 9, we’ll discuss the book Taking America Back for God: Christian Nationalism in the United States by Andrew Whitehead & Samuel Perry. Books are free through a Thrivent grant—to order yours, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Written from a sociological viewpoint, this book identifies three essential themes of Christian nationalism: power, boundaries, and order.
Oct. 2: Discuss Red State Christians, Chap. 1
Oct. 9: Taking America Back for God, pp. ix-21
Next Baking Day: Sun, Oct. 23, 3:30 PM
Join us on Oct. 23, when a member will lead us in making apple turnovers! Celebrate the flavors of fall with this classic dessert. You'll need apples (Lynn recommends Granny Smiths), Pepperidge Farm puff pastry, butter, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch. We'll meet via Zoom at 3:30 PM, so that Confirmation class participants can also join the fun. Meanwhile, enjoy these yummy photos from our last baking day on Aug. 28.
