Opportunities for spiritual growth in personal discipleship

Sunday mornings at 9:15 am

Ecclesiastes seems a mysterious book with its unanswered arguments and cynical observations about life. Yet “the Teacher” provides strong words in defense of a life devoted to the living Lord. Meets Sundays at 9:15 AM in room 32 on the lower level.

Presbyterian Understanding and Use of Holy Scripture Rev. Shipman leads this study seeking an understanding of Presbyterians’ use of Scripture as the rule of faith and life. It aims to formulate principles guiding the interpretation of Scripture – principles rooted in the confessional documents defining the Reformed tradition. This holds the promise for Presbyterians to regain common ground, though is not intended and should not be expected to result in unanimity in every aspect. Meets Sundays, February 1, 8 and 15 in the fellowship hall.

Through the week

Vanishing Grace: What Ever Happened to the Good News? Philip Yancey explores the question “Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?”, then offers grace-filled ways of presenting the gospel. Starts Wednesday, January 14; room 30 on the lower level.

Women’s Bible study group will read and discuss An Altar in the World, by Barbara Brown Taylor, the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, 1–2:30 pm. Please join us – contact Alice Chambers.

Thursday book group begins Jan 29 to discuss The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. This New York Times best-seller is a page-turner and romantic at times. It’s also a shattering look at how growing up in foster care can badly warp responses to life. All are welcome, for this 3-week book discussion or for any future book discussions. Please read through page 100 for this Thursday’s meeting. Meets 1–2:30 pm, in room 118.

Riverside Community Gathering Set the written word down and live the gospel in this faith-based community outreach. Each week we join approximately 40 people to eat, pray and share our lives. Meets Wednesdays, 4:30–5:45 pm, at First Presbyterian Church, 300 N. Washington St., Ypsilanti. Please contact Mike Beckman for more information.

Adult classes and small groups present a variety of topics and styles covering areas such as Bible study, discipleship and Christian living, life transitions, Christian theologians and contemporary issues. We encourage open-minded discussion, reflection, prayer and disciplines to establish habits of life-long learning, discernment and action as Christians challenged to be faithful and Christ-centered in the world.

You are welcome to join our planning meetings on the second Monday of the month at 7 PM.

Save the planet, one cup at a time: Bring a coffee mug from home to keep at church. There is a cupboard in the kitchen where you can keep it; when you are finished, just place it in the rack by the dishwasher to be washed for use the next Sunday. Save on waste, save on cost, and feel more at home while at church.

Resources for current and previous classes are here.
