• A Journey into the Old Testament

For many Christians, the Old Testament is strange territory. Yet, in order to understand and appreciate the New Testament, one needs to grapple with the Old Testament. The class, led by Rev. James P. Nickols, will be offered twice a week: Sundays, beginning 13 September at 9:00 a.m., and Thursdays, beginning 17 September at 6:30 p.m. The class is a fascinating journey into the historical background of the Hebrew Scriptures and literature. The text for the course is Michael Coogan's The Old Testament: A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures (2nd edition). The book may be found on Amazon and is reasonably priced as a used book.

• Christ in Comics?

Vicar Nathan Huffman will offer a colorful class on scripture and theology through the lens of the DC and Marvel universe. We will explore these stories in relation to the Greatest Story. You may be surprised just where the inspiration for these incredible characters came from! This class will occur during the Sunday School hour (Sundays beginning 13 Sept, 9:00 a.m.). Youth and young-at-heart welcome!
