Feast15Jan. 18 – March 22

Join us for dinner, fellowship, choir rehearsals, and a wide range of opportunities to know and share in the love of Christ! You can register for dinner and classes for all 10 weeks (click here), or you’re welcome to come and go as your schedule allows. Reservations can be made weekly by filling out a blue form (found in the pews) on Sunday and dropping it in the offering basket, or by calling the front desk (770.393.1424) on Monday. You will not feel left out if you can only occasionally drop by for a class or even just show up for dinner! Make this your mid-week time to recharge.

Classes & Choirs

We welcome adult volunteers in every class! To lend a hand, please contact Catherine Anne Thomas.

The Beginner’s Bible on the Big Screen! (Age 3-Kindergarten) When it comes to learning Bible stories at a young age, nobody does it better than The Beginner’s Bible. These great stories will come to life for our youngest students on Wednesday nights as they watch each story unfold on the screen and then engage in related take-home activities.

What’s in the Bible? Discover the Gospels! (Grades 1-3) This fact-filled and entertaining series from Phil Vischer explains why the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are “such a big deal.” Our overview starts with the 400 years between the Old and New Testaments and ends with the resurrection of Jesus. In addition to video clips, we will also be intrigued with small group activities, games, music, and fun projects.

LifeLab (Grades 4 & 5) This fun class is built around activities and experiences rooted in faith. There’s never a dull moment as we see how God’s amazing world can teach us lessons we’ll remember for a lifetime.

Youth (Middle & High School) Join the adults in hearing people’s faith stories — it’s always great to hear how God is working in everyone’s lives.

High School Juniors & Seniors are invited to a special series in February to ask questions about faith and life in college. The seminar is led by a Dr. Anne Hallum, a former professor of Political Science at Stetson University. Throughout her career she walked with students as they developed their faith more in college. She will base the four sessions from the book Sticky Faith by Kara Powell, Brad Griffin, and Cheryl Crawford. Friends are encouraged to come as well. February 1, 8, 15, and 22.

Stories of Faith (Youth & Adults) Ever wonder how faith originates and develops for others? Ever thought about how you would tell the story of your life with God? Hearing the sacred stories of others is a gift, and can inspire all of us to think about our own journeys in new ways. This class, open to all youth and adults, will include storytelling from pastors David and Shannon and other church leaders, as well as reflection about the various shapes and approaches one’s story of faith can take. And anyone inspired to write or tell her or his own story can do so along the way!
