SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES
Connecting with God and Neighbor through Education.
Adult Sunday Morning Classes at Village Church on Mission
Registration is required for Adult Sunday Morning Classes. Please come, grow and enjoy fellowship.
Faith Journey - 9:30 a.m. Sunday, via Zoom, facilitated by Kathy Ray
The Faith Journey class believes God gives each of us understanding for the journey according to our needs, so while one person’s path may not be where another one is lead, we respect the Spirit in each of us. We are a community that grows and supports each other. Our format is to use book studies, guest speakers, and videos to explore new perspectives and examine our own beliefs.
Beginning on Sunday, Sept.20, the class will have a 4-week discussion on the book “Finding God in the Waves: How I Lost my Faith and Found it Again Through Science,” by Mike McHargue. The author draws on his personal experience to tell the unlikely story of how science led him back to faith. Among other revelations, we learn what brain scans reveal about what happens when we pray.

Village Forum - 10:30 a.m. Sundays, via Zoom, facilitated by Dr. Gus Breytspraak
Village Forum is a lively class of adults ranging in age from their 30s to their 80s. Class topics include biblical studies, theology, social issues and church history. Discussion is encouraged, and classes are led by visiting teachers as well as class members.
September classes will be led by Dr. Leslie Smith, who completed her PhD. at the University of California at Santa Barbara. We will be exploring world religions with two weeks on Hinduism, followed by two weeks on Buddhism. Along with getting an overview of each religion, our goal will be to get a better sense of how the original practices of each tradition differ from Americanized versions.
