Along with our amazing Theologian in Residence this fall, our Adult Faith Formation committee has put together a varied list of ways we can deepen our study. We will have several small groups that meet throughout the week that will follow our sermon series or a topic the group decides on together. Go to firstchurchlf.org/small-groups to see the schedule and to express your interest.
We will also have large group discussions throughout the week—Women’s Wednesday Worship; Friday Men’s Prayer and Bible Study Group; and the Men’s Discussion Group that meets every other Sunday, and, new this year, Steadfast Hope: The Palestinian Quest for Just Peace. Steadfast Hope begins on Oct. 16. For more information about that and the other discussion groups, visit firstchurchlf.org/adults.
We are continuing our Christian Perspectives program that connects our faith to issues and events in our world. Stay tuned for information on the next gathering.
Community Bible Study (CBS) is a non-denominational Bible study comprising women from varied backgrounds, ages and church affiliations. This year the study is on the book of Isaiah. CBS meets every Tuesday morning from 9:15 – 11:15 a.m. at Christ Church, 100 Waukegan Road in Lake Forest. To sign up, contact Gail Heidbreder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Alpha Course is for anyone curious about Christianity. It is designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment. Stop by at 6 p.m., on Sunday, Sept. 18 for an informational gathering in the Parish House.
Covenant Bible Study starts Sept. 19 at 1:30 p.m., in the Parish House. This is an in-depth group Bible study where participants read and discuss the Bible together, examine what “covenant” means, and the progression of a covenant relationship with God.
