|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:45pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 27, 2019

 

The church’s Seasoned Adults meet to discuss what other Christians believe 

The instructor is Dr. Donna Fowler-Marchant.

Sessions will be on January 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6, 13, 20, 27. This study will take us to the threshold of Lent.

Are you interested in what other Christian denominations believe and why? Maybe you have seen icons and wondered why the Russian and Greek Orthodox churches have them, or maybe you want to know what Pentecostals mean by “baptism in the Holy Spirit.” Perhaps you don’t know why the Book of Common Prayer is so foundational for Episcopalians or why Baptists don’t practice infant baptism.   If so, join us for Christianity’s Family Tree, a book-and-video study by the Rev. Adam Hamilton. In this study, we are introduced to some of the foundational theological emphases and traditions of 8 different Christian groups: Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism.  The video features excerpts from his sermons and from conversations Hamilton had with clergy from each tradition as he attempts to cultivate appreciation for the different branches of the Christian family tree.
