The Parables of Jesus

When you read the parable stories in the Bible, do you ever imagine yourself in the story? What would be your reactions, thoughts and insights? As the stories unfold, we realize that surprises emerge from everyday situations that give us a different and deeper perspective on Jesus’ teaching and our lives of discipleship. Come join us as we explore the parables of the Kingdom of God, the Good Samaritan and many more. Lynda Waller will facilitate this group which will meet at 10:00 a.m. in center section of the fellowship hall starting April 28th.

Aging and Saging

All of us age. You might say,” some of us better than others!” However, we are all always aging. And believe it or not, age really is more than a number. So how we age makes a real impact on us as Christians, as well as our loved ones and our community. 

Let’s explore how we age, what it means for our faith, and how we can age to the best of our abilities, whether it’s we who are doing the aging, or family members or close friends. And let’s call it “ Aging and Saging”. (And just so you know, that last word isn’t ‘sagging!’). Linda Spencer will lead this group which will meet at 10:00 a.m. in Parlor starting April 28th. 

Other Faith Growth Opportunities

God Comes To Us

Calvary’s discipleship groups are places to connect and grow with others in life and faith. Friendships are built here. Christian care and support are offered in these gatherings. Everyone is allowed to participate as they are comfortable. Joining a discipleship group is a very intentional way to discover the joy of following Jesus. It is a great way to start 2019. 

An evening discipleship group will meet starting Sunday, January 6th at 5:00 p.m. and a morning group will be held starting Wednesday, January 9th at 10:30 a.m. Carolyn Mauney and Janice Fredrickson will lead the Sunday group. Pastor Debbie and Janelle Correll will lead the Wednesday morning group. Each group will meet for 9 weeks. If you would like to participate, please let Pastor Debbie know, so that materials may be ordered for you. 

God comes to Us will use faith statements from the Apostle’s Creed not to dictate the doctrines that Christians must believe, but to learn what the creeds teach us about who God is and who we are. The study invites us to consider such topics as: Does it matter what we believe? Who is God? Who is Jesus and what was his message? Who is the Holy Spirit?
