Good News and the Other News

Meets Every Sunday, AH-207 

newspaperNOTE:  October 15-November 5, we will participate in the Generosity Study (see description above).  Each week a topic pertaining to recent events in the news is discussed, giving opportunity to reflect upon the news story from the perspective of faith. As people of faith, we are called to be engaged in the world and reflect upon everyday events by pondering what Scripture has to say to such matters, and this class is a weekly opportunity to do just that. We call it the Good News and Other News as a reminder of how Scripture still speaks to all that happens in our lives.

Led by Christo Claassans, Jenny Danzis, and Jay Stough. AH-207

Meets Every Sunday, AH-120  

This class is a forum for men of DPC to gather for a time of study and fellowship where we can comfortably address the myriad of personal problems that men face and seldom openly discuss. Each session is presented by a Christian professional or Bible scholar.  Coordinated by Lou Zoppel.

EXCEPTIONAL SPEAKERS CONFRONTING REAL LIFE ISSUES

The Word Among Us

Meets Every Sunday, AH-209 

NOTE:  October 15 - November 5, we will participate in the Generosity Study (see description above).  This class is an in-depth Bible study and discussion group that welcomes anyone who is interested in exploring Scripture. In September, our class will begin a study of 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, and Ephesians.  These four letters from Paul deal with problems of divisions and debates within the church, problems with immoral behavior among some of the early Christians, and some theological questions arising from false teachers.  Paul not only deals with these difficult issues, but he also gives powerful guidance on Christian living that is just as useful today as it was when it was written. New members are always welcome!  Whether you are new or experienced in Bible study, we invite to join us and grow with us. 

Led by Dick Cornelius and Margaret Thoresen in AH-209
