    College Class: The Essentials

    Chris & Liz Lawson (Terrace Room)

    Whether we're new to the Christian faith or we've been walking with God for years, grounding ourselves in the essential elements of our faith is critical to our spiritual growth. Join us in this 10-part series as we take a closer look at the foundational elements and practices of the Christian faith such as the doctrine of the Trintiy, our assurance of salvation, and the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


    God's People in Exile & Their Return to the Land

    Perry & Elaine Phillips (Granary Room)

    This class is designed to follow last year’s focus on 1 and 2 Kings—the history of Israel and Judah in the Land. This term we will consider the radical changes God’s people faced in the cosmopolitan culture of Babylon and later Persia. For the minority who did return to Judah, the challenges of being a persecuted minority were equally daunting. In both cases, the lessons for us are powerful.


    Genesis

    Mary Harvey, Norm Graf (Common Room)

    Genesis narrates incredible stories involving God at work in the lives of his people. Moses’s first book seeks to educate God’s people concerning foundational ideas and beliefs that were vital for God’s people to know and remember. Through these stories, Moses presents profound truths of God’s character, promises, presence, and his covenant with his people that can vitally affect our faith today. Come explore these with us.

    Divorced? Separated? We can help. Find help. Discover hope. Experience healing. DivorceCare helps you recover from the pain of separation and divorce. DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly. You’ll find a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an oasis in an otherwise difficult season of life. There are three key elements to your experience: video seminar, group discussion and a personal workbook.

    Unless you’ve been there it’s hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce. That’s why many of your friends and family don’t fully understand what you are going through and don’t know how to best help you.

    We understand. DivorceCare groups are led by people who have been through divorce and successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We’ll show you how to deal with the hurt caused by your separation and divorce.

    DivorceCare is a network of 13,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer divorce support groups. The program is non-demonominational and features biblical teaching for recovering from divorce or separation. Learn more about DivorceCare, or join our Meetup group to stay up-to-date on our meeting calendar.

    Park Street Church is committed to the Great Commission as given in Mattthew 28:18-20, which says:

    “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    One of the strategic components of that commitment is our Short-Term Missions Program (STM). The overall goal of our STM Program is to allow our congregation to explore their own calling to mission involvement through short, cross-cultural experiences, which also advance the long-term goals of our full-time missionaries and partners.

    Short-term mission trips, whether local or abroad, will give us the opportunity to use our gifts to advance the gospel through evangelism, practical helps or works of mercy.

    Check out the Short-Term Missions webpage for more information and applications or contact missions@parkstreet.org.

    Journey to Bethlehem

    Families & Children

    December 15

    Details

    Journey to Bethlehem is a Christmas immersion experience in which families in groups of 15–20 are guided through a re-enactment of the biblical narrative of the birth of Jesus. The evening will run from 6 pm to 9:30 pm on Friday December 15.

    Visit Mary and Joseph in Nazareth as they receive the news of the miraculous conception of their son, baby Jesus. Travel to Bethlehem and work with Mary and Joseph to find housing so that you can participate in the census ordered by Caesar Augustus. Enter into Herod’s palace and overhear the Magi’s effort to thwart the evil plans of this despot ruler. Spend time in the fields with the shepherds and hear the proclamation of good news made by the angels that a savior has been born. And finally, visit the manger to see Baby Jesus.

    Journey to Bethlehem will take about 1 1/4 hour to complete. There is no cost for this event, though the opportunity to make a donation to help reduce expenses will be available at the end of your journey. You must register for this event. Limited space for 180 travelers is available. This is a great event to invite your friends and neighbors to!

    We need actors and volunteers! To act or help out behind the scenes, email Adam Herndon.
