SUMMER ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
STUDY OF THE
NICENE CREED

July 8, 15, 22, 29,
August 5, 12

 

"I believe in one God, the Father almighty maker of heaven and earth ...something, something, something...God from God, light from light, true God from true God...something, something, something, I believe in one, holy, and Catholic..." Wait a minute, I thought I was in a Presbyterian Church, not a Catholic Church!!!

For so many, reciting a creed during worship can be like that -- a mindless exercise that either bores us or confuses us - or both.

This summer, Bob Porter and Larry Greenslit will lead a class on the Nicene Creed. Our goal is not just to understand the Nicene Creed but to appreciate, (revere?) it to the point where it can be recited with quiet enthusiasm (shouting it out during a church service may scare those around you!). We invite you to join us in the Triple Room at 9:45 a.m. on the Sundays listed above.

by Judy Yates Siker

The Bible Buddies study group meets at the church on Monday nights from 7:00-9:00 pm in Room 22 beginning September 10th. This study will run for about nine weeks (with possible holiday exclusions). This study begins with the four gospels, then looks at Paul's writings and the book of Hebrews, as well as some writings not chosen for the Bible, to see who people thought Jesus was. The study will conclude with a look at Jewish and Muslim literature, as well as contemporary writings.

The cost of the book is $9.00. Please contact Sara Porter by August 20th so books can be ordered. She can be reached at 703-670-8737 or saraporter@comcast.net.

All are welcome at both studies, even if you can't make every session. We work collaboratively as we enjoy searching God's word.
