  • Why Does the Church Need to Pay Attention to Young Adults?  •  Sat, Apr 25  •  XHG6OTH2EI

    When & Where: Sat  •  Apr 25  •  10 am - 2 pm  •  Ogden Fellowship Hall

    Pew Research Center found that nearly three-quarters of religious “nones” in the US were raised as Christians. Millennials are now being replaced by Gen Z as the least religious generation. While the headlines aren’t very hopeful, and the statistics are there to support their claims, there is an invitation for the church. Will we continue the status quo, hoping they will eventually come? Or, will we engage their questions and concerns with a willingness to adapt? Scripture and tradition suggest the latter is needed for the church to not only survive, but thrive.

    Cost: $25 (includes lunch and book)

These reflections attempt to address the following issues: What the Bible isn’t and what it is. How are we to use the Bible? How might we understand salvation? How might we approach prayer? What are essential elements of worship? How might we understand communion anew? What are the marks of a good disciple? How might we understand death and resurrection?

    The book can be ordered online or purchased at the Welcome Desk for $10.

    I hear it all the time, that God loves me unconditionally, but does He really? Because sometimes I feel like I’m not worth it. And the Bible talks about a wrathful, angry God who metes out vengeance. That scares me. I don’t know how to sort out the dogma and know what is real. So, what is God’s nature, really? Why should he care about me? Author, photographer, and theologian John MacMurray invites us to walk along with him as he unpacks his personal journey of discovering God’s true nature and what His justice really looks like. It is strongly recommended that you read The Shack by Paul Young before this class.

    Cost: $15 for the book

    United Methodists today are faced with the very real possibility of a denominational division over issues of ordination and marriages of “self-avowed and practicing homosexual persons.” Underlying this conflict is a deep division over the issue of biblical authority. What do our United Methodist doctrinal standards, our Articles of Religion and Confession of Faith, say about biblical authority? How can we understand the scriptures in the light of the “quadrilateral” of authorities (scripture, tradition, experience, and reason) affirmed by United Methodists since 1972? How can we understand particular biblical tests, especially those that speak directly about same-sex relationships?
