“Hebrews: Jesus is Superior! Why does it matter?” The message of this sermon is the community must learn to hold fast to their confession. Understanding how God equipped ancient believers, we will understand how God can outfit us. In this ancient text, we find modern answers. Meets in fellowship hall at 9:35am.
What Presbyterians Believe and The Origins of These Beliefs
October 3, 10, and 17 - 4PM to 5:30PM – Fellowship Hall
Was Jesus an actual human being, someone who “appeared to be human,” or something else? How are the Bread and Wine the Body of Christ? How is truth discerned from the complexity of the Scriptures, especially when many people are proclaiming opposing interpretations to be “the truth?” These are the kinds of questions that will be addressed in the course “What Presbyterians Believe and The Origins of these Beliefs.”
The Presbyterian Church USA is guided by a rich diversity of confessions. Each one was developed at a specific point in history in response to a precise question. A study of the context in which the foundational beliefs of Christians, Protestants, Presbyterians and the Presbyterian Church (USA) have taken shape will be offered from 4:00 to 5:30 on three successive Wednesday afternoons; October 3, 10 and 17. The class will be led by Rev. Dr. Robert Wallace, a retired minister of the PC(USA) who has conducted workshops on this subject for the Savannah and Central Florida presbyteries. Bob attends worship regularly with us at LPC … come and get to know Bob!
Sign-up sheets will be available in the Narthex. Participants should have a copy of the PC(USA) Book of Confessions. Books can be downloaded in PDF format at no cost at https://www.pcusa.org/site_media/media/uploads/oga/pdf/boc2014.pdf - (Free is good!). In addition, a limited number of paperback copies are available from the church office (if you use one of these, please do not write notes in the books). Books are also available for purchase through Amazon and the PC(USA) online bookstore!
