“How (not) to Be Secular”: Tim Gustafson and Bob Bondurant will be teaching a class discussing how to live in an age in which, as philosopher Charles Taylor writes, belief in God “is understood to be one option among others, and frequently not the easiest to embrace.” This class will meet in the main worship area.

“The Pastor’s Class”: Shaun will be revisiting our Foundations Classes. This series of classes begins at the beginning of the Christian faith with an introduction to basic Christian beliefs. We then move into next steps in the life of the believer. Eventually we walk our way through skills for growth and major doctrinal building blocks. This is a series of classes that has been taught before so, assuming a smaller group of attendees, we’ll start out meeting in Shaun’s office.
