Young Adults Sunday School
Location: Great Hall Dining Room
If you’ve ever longed for spiritual transformation but thought it too difficult in the midst of a busy professional and social life – this class is for you. This Fall we’ll study Dallas Willard’s The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives and explore what it means to follow Jesus in ways that are not only accessible but relevant to our lives as young people in the 21st Century.
Location: Marmion Conference Room
This class will conduct a year-long study of the book of Acts with specific applications to families and relationships. We will focus teaching and discussion on real-life applications using the message of the first century church as they expanded the Kingdom. Family Matters is open to all with a specific emphasis on building community for families, strengthening family relationships, and building a fellowship of supportive believers.
The Cost of Non-Discipleship: Can You Afford It?
Location: Room 114 (across from Outreach)
The call to follow Christ is neither a call to be religious nor a call to be a church member, though we may be both. This study is about discipleship: what it is and how we can take specific steps to grow in it; and it is about how empty our lives are -– for ourselves and others — when we fail to grow as disciples. We will base our study on two classics which will hopefully draw us to follow Christ more fully: Dallas Willard’s The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives and Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison.
God’s Plan of the Ages: A Panoramic View of God’s Dealing With Mankind

It will demonstrate the continuity and relationship of events through which God declares His sovereignty and exercises His dominion over His creation. Particular emphasis will be placed on His methods, means and purposes in bringing about His plans and His will for all of mankind.

Prayer in the Family of God
Location: Choir Room
The Gospel of Luke records several beautiful and profoundly meaningful examples of praise and prayer from the mouths of those present for the births and infancies of John the Baptist and Jesus. How has our daily prayer life as Anglicans received and drawn meaning from these songs of prayer and praise? What meaning do these songs have in the Gospel of Luke, and what meaning do they take on in our prayer life? Join Father Paul Wheatley as he introduces Anglican ordered prayer, the songs from St. Luke’s Gospel, and a look into the most ancient hymns of praise in our daily prayer. Dr. Benjamin Brand, Assistant Professor of Music History, Theory, and Ethnomusicology at UNT will join us for a guest lecture as well.
Leader: Fr. Paul Wheatley
