"Messy Grace"
Teachers: Doreen Reysen, Rebecca Spangler | 8/21-12/4 | C-207 (Upstairs behind MPC)
A five-week class repeated three times this semester that explores the sometimes divisive issue in Christianity of the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church. As a pastor and as a person with beloved family members living a gay lifestyle, Caleb had to face this issue with courage and grace. Messy Grace shows us that Jesus’s command to “love your neighbor as yourself” doesn’t have an exception clause for a gay “neighbor”—or for that matter, any other “neighbor” we might find it hard to relate to. Jesus was able to love these people and yet still hold on to his beliefs. So can you. Even when it is messy.

Teachers: Amy Cannon | 10/16-11/20 | Fellowship Hall

In this 6-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything.
