The beginning of a new year calls for a fresh start. A fresh start comes with new goals, visions, and renewed commitments to faith and others.

The Gospel of John

The Seven Signs and “I am” Statements

Led by: Dr. Steve Sumerel
Location: Chapel
Duration: Wednesdays, January 9 – February 27


The Gospel of John: The Seven Signs and “I am” Statements. The Fourth Gospel explores the true nature of Jesus through the seven signs or miracles that have meaning beyond the actions themselves. The seven “I am” statements are things that Jesus said about himself. These sessions will explore the meaning of these events and statements, and move closer to answering the ultimate question, “Who is Jesus to Us?”

Manna and Mercy

Missional Justice through God’s Eyes

Led by:  Rev. Amy Grizzle Kane
Location: 102
Duration: Wednesdays, January 9 – February 27

Over 8 weeks, we’ll creatively and imaginatively explore biblical texts and themes of sharing, forgiveness, and justice at the heart of God’s call to all of us to be partners in creation and justice, bringing God’s kingdom to earth as it is in heaven.  This is what “doing Missions” is all about. We’ll also hear from a few of our FBC Missions Partners about how they are partnering with God to learn how we can continue to help.
