Experiencing Forgiveness - Registration Now Open for New Christian Education Class| SUN, OCT 17, 24, 31 | 9:50 am & 5:30 pm

Led by Rev. Michael J. Balboni, Ph.D.

This three-week seminar, beginning on SUN, OCT 17, discusses what forgiveness means, and how we can offer it to those who transgress us.  The seminar will engage questions such as: What is the nature of forgiveness?  Must I forgive someone who does not ask for forgiveness?  What is the relationship of forgiveness and justice?

The seminar will also provide practical strategies toward experiencing emotional release from anger, hurt, and frustration through exercises that overcome victimization narratives, deepening of empathy, developing a humble altruism, and maintaining a heart of forgiveness even in fractured relationships. This seminar is based on the psychoeducational REACH intervention of Dr. Everett Worthington, a Christian and the leading psychology researcher in the field of forgiveness.

This course is available at 9:50 AM and 5:30 PM on Sundays, OCT 17, 24, and 31.

This class will have both in-person and virtual options. Please register below.


Ezekiel: Prophet in Exile (Season Two) - Registration Now Open for Christian Education Class |Sundays | 9:50 am

Led by Drs. Elaine and Perry Phillips, this course begins SUN, OCT 17 and will continue on Sundays until March.

In our first year of studying Ezekiel (chapters 1-18), we encountered intertwining theological emphases: the glory of God; the idolatry of God’s rebellious people; the judgment of exile and promise of return. These themes continue through ch. 24 and will be our initial focus in the fall. The Lord’s Word through Ezekiel transcends temporal and spatial boundaries; we have sobering lessons to learn.

This is an in-depth scriptural exploration of the writings of the prophet Ezekiel. The class is lead by Elaine Phillips and her husband, Perry. Elaine served as a Professor of Old Testament at Gordon College.

New students are welcome. Virtual and in-person options are available.
