Social Justice Class

Meets in the Sanctuary – around thejust church
“Table in the corner” by the window

Are you ready for a new way to seek justice – an ancient way to know God?  We will begin by studying the book, The Just Church, by Jim Martin.  It’s a practical guide on how to do justice and grow in discipleship, from those on the frontlines of the battle in the world’s darkest and most dangerous places.  Jim Martin and the international Justice Mission are experts not only in bringing resue to victims of violence, sex trafficking, slavery, and oppression, but also, at bringing churches into the fight, through concrete steps that actually make a difference.  Learn how to carry out one of the Bible’s core commands to seek justice in a way that amounts to more than mere words and good intentions.  In the process, you’ll discover one of the most powerful tools to grow faith and deepen discipleship.  In the Just Church, Martin shares tangible, accessible strategies to respond to God’s call to seek justice, defend the widow and orphan, and resue the oppressed… whether in far-off places or right in our own community.

Starts at 10:45am so you will have plenty of time to get a cup of coffee before the discussion begins.

A Cup of Joe for Adult Men

act-like-menCup of Joe, a gathering of men, for
study, conversation and prayer will begin this Fall with discussions from the book, Act Like Men, by James MacDonald. Any and all men are invited to join the conversation, Sunday’s at 10:45am.
Men are so busy doing so many different things. No down time-every day, every week filled with stuff. What society and church so desperately need, though, are men who embrace all God created them to be: men who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation. To get there we need what Pastor James MacDonald calls “radical surgery” – a deep, probing exploration and reparation of all that it means to be a man. In his definitive, bold voice, MacDonald calls men to be watchful, firm in their faith, strong, and loving. This isn’t a
call for bravado and bluster. It’s a call for men to mix tender
and tough, to be humble, to follow Jesus. It is a call to be
leaders, men of God, husbands who are present and caring
and strong. It is straight talk-no posturing or posing or beating
around the bush- inviting men to redemption and restoration
in their manhood.
