Spring 2018 Classes
• Lenten Study: Facilitated by Allison Woods - Starts February 21st!
Please join us as we work through the Award-winning book, Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren. “In overlooked moments and routines, we can become aware of God’s presence in surprising ways. How do we embrace the sacred in the ordinary and the ordinary in the sacred? Each chapter of the book helps us view ordinary life events—making the bed, brushing teeth, losing car keys—through the lens of the liturgy. There are plenty of discussion questions and activities to try, with everything related to spiritual practices and elements of our Sunday Worship.”
If you are interested in this Lenten Study, please sign up through the Church Office. Due to the Ash Wednesday Service, this class will meet for the first time on Wednesday Feb. 21 and run for 5 weeks. We will meet in Room B111 from 6:30-8pm. This study will require additional reading outside of class time.
You can order the book through Cokesbury for $12.49 or from CBD for $11.99 (Shipping and Tax not included). ISBN 978-0-8308-4623-8.
• “DISCIPLE - A NEW TESTAMENT STUDY: Facilitated by Pastor Rick
This class is being offered for all who not only desire to be informed, but transformed, by the living word of God. This session will focus specifically on the 27 books of the New testament. It is a 12-week class and includes a commitment to the daily reading of the assigned texts. It is an approved Grow Institute Class, but is offered to all who want to grow deeper in their understanding of the New Testament. The books are in the Church Office and are available for $16. The class will be held in Room B105.
• Lectio Devina: Facilitated by Pastor Susan Innes
Lectio Devina is Latin for “divine reading” but divine listening might be a more accurate description. Each week we'll intentionally work to hear what God is saying to us from a passage in the Bible through repetition and prayer. This is a class anyone can attend at any time! There is no set homework and you can't get behind if you miss a week. Anyone at any stage in their spiritual walk will find this adds to their spiritual maturity. All that is required is your personal Bible and, if you like, a journal. The class will be held in the Chapel.
You are invited to join the Asbury Church Family for a ZONE dinner from 5pm to 6:15pm. Cost is only $5.50/Adults, $3.50/Kids with a $17/Family Max. Following dinner, kids ages 3-years-old to 6th grade will head to AWANA (our children's program full of fun games, activities and lessons) at 6pm. Each session of ZONE Classes, the topics offered to adults change and you may choose which classes interest you the most. Please check back here to learn more about the Fall 2017 ZONE Classes.
