Adult Sunday School
Over the next several weeks, we will return to our study of the Westminster Confession of Faith in the Sanctuary, as Pastor Knox White teaches on chapters 27-29 (Sacraments, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper). Although Dr. Rayburn recently gave an overview of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper in the Foundations class, Knox plans to cover somewhat different ground, wading into some of the controversies surrounding the sacraments, investigating the supporting exegesis, and giving attention to additional argumentation not included in the recent overview.
On January 7, we resume the reading of the Chronicles of Narnia with book 7, The Last Battle. Michael Ward in The Narnia Code says, “In The Last Battle, Father Time extinguishes the Sun by squeezing it in his hand like an orange. This reminds us of what Lewis wrote in the Saturn section of ‘The Planets,’ where he speaks of the Sun being ‘daunted with darkness.’ And it is not just the Sun that disappears in
this story. All the other stars fall from the sky too. Saturn was responsible for ‘disastrous events,’ … [T]he world of Narnia and all the characters in it have to cope with disastrous events from the very start of the story. Everyone who is alive at the beginning of this tale is dead by the end of it.” And yet, the book that begins with Saturn, ends with Jupiter/Jove. “And so we see that Saturn has brought about
the very best thing, the return to the Jovial spirit of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Saturn enables the children to see beyond sorrow…. Jovial happiness is at the heart of the Narnian universe, and in the end, the characters who appear in The Last Battle have to decide which they prefer: Jovial happiness or Saturnine sorrow.” Join us as we finish reading the Chronicles together. We meet in the
Senior High Sunday School
We all want to grow into who God has made us to be. But how do we do that? Come join us for a Sunday School based on Mason King’s “Spiritual Disciplines: How to Become a Healthy Christian.” We will be focusing on developing basic spiritual practices and developing what it means to have a full and flourishing life with God. High schoolers (9th-12th grade) are encouraged to join Pastor Gutiérrez, Mr. & Mrs. Funches, and Mrs. & Mrs. Moura Sundays 10:00 – 10:45 am, in the library
