Enrollment is open for the Oconee Street UMC Fall 2014 “University of Faith” classes.
Established four years ago, University of Faith classes are weekly discussions about a specific topic, book of the Bible or other subject for Christian discussion. Enrollment is free and childcare is provided, but advance registration is requested so enough materials can be provided for all participants.
Two University of Faith classes will be offered this fall. The Life of a Missional Church explores what it means for us to be sent into the world. Participants will look at our history as a local congregation and as a denomination and the visioning that has gone on this past year as we look toward our future in mission. Each week will have a different facilitator. The class begins Monday, Sept. 8 and meets every week through Sept. 29 from 7-8:30 p.m. at 717 Oconee Street.
Living the Good Life: Christian Ethics in Feminist Perspective will focus on the question, “What is the good life and how can we live it?” Participants will explore moral dilemmas, and evaluate resources that Christians should draw upon in making decisions. This discussion-based reading group will be facilitated by Dr. Jodie Lyon, assistant professor of religious studies at the University of Georgia, and will be conducted through the distinctive lens of feminist ethics. The class begins Tuesday, Oct. 7 and meets every week from 7-8 p.m. through Nov. 11 in the adult Sunday school classroom in the temporary worship hall.
