The Learning Hour - Adult Sunday School
Sundays at 9:15 am
Jesus himself once asked the disciples, "Who do people say that I am?"  How would your personal, religious and social understanding of Jesus prompt you to respond to this question?  Do you have one or more perspectives about Jesus' life and ministry?  Whatever your responses, let the Learning Hour give you an opportunity to know Jesus better. The group meets in Bowers Chapel September through May.

Winter 2019

In “Embracing an Adult Faith—Marcus Borg on What it Means to be a Christian,” author

and Bible scholar Borg invites us to join him in revisiting Christianity's most fundamental

questions: Who is God? What does salvation mean? What place does Jesus hold in

contemporary Christian faith? For information, contact Brian Frederick at 717-451-3977
