Kerygma: God Saves a People
Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.

Join Dr. Dave Moore as we look at one of the most prominent themes running throughout the Bible: salvation. This 8-week course traces the saving grace of God from the Exodus, the wanderings, and the Kingdom’s rise and fall, on to God’s new act of salvation through Jesus, into the early church.  Follow the sweep of the story and marvel at the mighty acts of God yet today!

Religious Women and Peacemaking
Mondays at 7:00 p.m.

From the Vestal Virgins in ancient Rome, to modern day Catholic nuns in Colombia, studies done across cultures, religions, and time reveal an inspiring and consistent narrative: religious women make powerful contributions to peacebuilding. Join us for this unique 4-week study as UNL Professor Dr. Morgan Palmer examines the various contributions women of multiple faiths have made to global peacemaking initiatives over the last 2,000 years. Our goals will be to recognize the significance of those contributions, gain a better understanding of how religious women work to build peace across different cultures and faith traditions, and critically evaluate the challenges and barriers that religious women face while working to promote peace.

The Great Commission
Sundays at 11:00 a.m.

Join Pastor Jed as we take a look at ways the church can reach out into the community, and welcome people into Saint Paul. We’ll look specifically at Saint Patrick’s method of outreach in Ireland, his emphasis on love of God and love of neighbor, and we’ll talk about the church as good news worth sharing with others. This is a 4-week class will help us better understand what Jesus meant when he told his disciples to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19-20).
