JOHN - The Gospel of Light and Life by Adam Hamilton
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke are different from the Gospel of John. Pastor Adam Hamilton states, "In Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus calls people to follow him. In John, Jesus calls people to believe in him and to abide in him." Also, the Gospel of John is "about the meaning - the spiritual significance - of Jesus' life." Come and listen to Adam Hamilton (via DVD) as he investigates the major themes of this Gospel. Hamilton is "senior pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, one of the fastest growing, most highly visible churches in the country." Pastor John will lead the discussion. Chapter 4 will be examined: The Farewell Discourse. ("In the New Testament, Chapters 14-17 of the Gospel of John are known as the Farewell Discourse given by Jesus to eleven of his disciples immediately after the conclusion of the Last Supper in Jerusalem, the night before his crucifixion.")

Don't Keep God's Promises a Secret ... Spill the Beans!
The Christian Education Team is excited to announce that Spill the Beans will be our new curriculum for our Sunday school this year. This curriculum follows the narrative lectionary which is the guide for our weekly worship time (Pastor John and the worship team uses Spill the Beans too). The Spill the Beans Resource team believes, "story is the lifeblood of faith. In story we can tell the truth and speak with honesty about things for which there are not yet words. Story contains mystery and is the poetry that forms faith. Stories grow as we grow and can reveal new truths at different times in our lives. So we believe giving stories to people is one of the most important things we can do in sharing our faith. Our culture is stored in story. The same is true for our faith." It is our hope by learning the story in worship together and then building on that lesson in our classrooms, parents will be able to continue the conversation at home. Check it out: Spill the Beans.
