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.

VIRTUAL ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Opening Conversations on Racism and Christian Faith
Sundays, June 12 - August 16
This class will focus on opening conversations related to racism and Christian faith. We will talk about the biblical picture of personhood and how the gospel is the most powerful tool for breaking down racial, cultural, political, and economic barriers. This 6-week class will bring a variety of Black voices from literature, first person accounts, and historical research to help us go further in this important conversation. There will also be three breakout group sessions for small group conversation and deeper investigation.
Steven Petersheim, Tyler Lenocker, and Frank Robinson will be leading our Zoom sessions. We will have some limited time for questions in these sessions, but the breakout groups will be devoted to extended discussion. This shared content will enable us to process, discuss, and share together. The issues at hand are complex, troubling, and important. Our prayer and hope is that this will be a next step to opening conversations together.
