This series was initiated by parents interested in learning more about how they can incorporate rituals that enhance spiritual growth into family life. Classes were designed to build upon each other but parents are welcome to attend individual classes as they are able. All adults interested in these topics are welcome!


Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication 

Once again, Professor Bart D. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, offers us this series of 24 lectures that explores and considers the varieties of belief and practice in the early days of Christianity, before the church had decided what was theologically acceptable and determined which books should be included in its canon of Scripture.

This class will be facilitated by Peggy Stoll  beginning September 20th at 9:30 a.m., continuing on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month. The class will meet in the last room on the right in the Sunday School Wing. Please join us to learn more about early Christianity and their sacred texts.
