Acts: Catching Up with the Spirit
In the season between Easter and Pentecost, we focus on how God’s Spirit is working in and through the Church. This 6-week study will provide an introduction to the Book of Acts (the story of the early Church) and explore six key themes that illustrate the ways in which reading Acts is capable of igniting our imagination about the character of the Christian message, the work of God’s people (the church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and changing world.

Groups will meet weekly for 6 weeks at four different times:
Wednesdays at 7:30 AM (beginning April 21)
Wednesdays at 7:00 PM (beginning April 14)
Thursdays at 9:30 AM (beginning April 15)
Sundays from 8:30-9:45 AM (beginning April 18)
Easter to Pentecost: A Spiritual Journey
As we await the Church’s celebration of the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, we will reflect on various definitions of spirituality; what Christian spirituality is, and what the Spirit invites us to do/be/become. Join Mary Ann Spina (Former Pastoral Associate, Pastoral Counselor, Spiritual Director, and Writer) for three faith-building weeks of exploring what it means to practice Christ-centered spirituality. If you have time prior to class, write your own definition of spirituality and a short description (3-5 words) about your own spirituality.
Contact Thom Cunningham at TCunningham@firstpresdf.org to participate.
Classes meet Sunday April 11, 18, 25 on Zoom at 8:30 AM
Reflecting on the Psalms with C.S. Lewis
During these times of crisis and COVID, the Psalms provide a great platform for discussion and growth. Join Dr. Greg Anderson who will be discussing C.S. Lewis’ “Reflections on the Psalms” as a way of using the Psalms as a vital resource for times such as these. Using insights from Lewis’ only biblical commentary, we will explore topics such as anger, death, justice, beauty, and biblical authority.
