The Life of David
What a guy! From shepherd boy to warrior to King of Israel, David stands out as a larger-than-life-figure and the “man after God’s own heart.” Yet for all the storied success, his life is riddled with contradictions: victories and set-backs, good choices and regrets. Aided by his own ample reflections as recorded in Psalms, we will look at David through the people he encountered: his best friend; his wily boss; his traitorous son; his wives and lovers. As current and exciting as a modern tabloid, we will explore David’s life and hear his heart with fresh insights.

How We Got Here and Why It Works
Each Sunday we gather to sing and pray, hear scripture and preaching. We call it worship. This class explores the history and practices of Sunday worship experiences across Christianity. We will look closely at how we arrived at where we are today, from communion and the giving of offerings, to hymns and the church seasonal calendar.
Instructor: Paul Edwards
Ascending the Heights: The Psalms of Ascent
In this class we will walk and meditate through Israel’s pilgrimage psalms. These 15 hymns illuminate the spiritual pilgrimage of the life of faith.
Instructor: Brian Diehl
Mind, Body, and Soul: Theology for Christian Living
Is the Christian life just about getting our ideas right, or does the body matter too? Does God have anything to do with our emotional lives, or are matters of the heart and emotions dealt with only outside the church? This term, we will be looking at what it means to be an integrated Christian. We will be drawing on theological and practical resources and hearing from some guests. Join us for a conversation about what it means to grow in Christ
Instructor: Dr. Kirsten Sanders
