ALL ADULTS PARTICIPATE —
Spiritual Growth Study- Practicing Resurrection: The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship.
This study explores what it means to live a life of radical discipleship today, using the Gospel of Mark as the foundation. We explore the timeless issues of poverty, gender, justice, liberation, equality, and others, using Mark as a guide. The stories of the women in Mark are a particular focus in this study and how, although often unnamed, they are prominent among Jesus’ followers and in Mark’s recounting of the gospel story.
YOUTH AND CHILDREN’S STUDIES —
Who Do You Say That I Am? Meeting Jesus Through the Eyes of Mark: A Youth Study This study guides youth through the Gospel of Mark, helping them to define who Jesus is to them, who he says he is in scripture, and how this impacts how we live our lives. The goal of this study is to help youth explore scripture in new ways so they can develop their own faith and put it into action. This is the mark of a true disciple.
MARKED: A Mission Journey with Jesus in the Gospel of Mark: A Study for Children
Children will learn that time and again Jesus demonstrates the power of God in amazing ways. Jesus appears primarily as healer, but also as a wise teacher. Mark depicts Jesus as the ruler over nature and the Gospel vividly shows the many ways Jesus confronts evil. This mission study focuses on interactive learning that allows children to use their senses.
