YPC Sunday Morning Adult Education
10:10am in Fellowship Hall
In the midst of radical shifts in our society and within Christianity itself, it is time to revisit the question “What is the role of the Church?”
What is the Church’s role in the lives of individuals and families who no longer turn to it as the center of their social and family structure? What is the Church’s role in a world that increasingly sees it as irrelevant or even antithetical to human progress? What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who continue to return to it as a source of strength, inspiration, solace and connection with God? What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who have never walked through one of our doors and those who have sworn they never will again?
Our generation’s answer to these questions will have a reverberating impact on the course of human history. Will the Church “die”? What about resurrection? Is there a clear line between the two or are they both happening simultaneously before our eyes?
This class features several of our generation’s wisest souls reflecting on these issues and the larger question of “What is the role of the Church?” Each class will have a short video, scripture, and discussion.
This is a fascinating time to be alive. Let us give God thanks for the Church that was, the Church that is, and the Church that is becoming.
