REDISCOVERING PAUL (Rationale)

The apostolic person for whom we possess more useful first hand information than any other 1st century worthy is Saul-Paul of Tarsus. Readers have two kinds of sources from which to view this pillar of Christianity: the letters which serve as the primary sources and the narratives of the Acts of the Apostles which offer a later secondary survey of the actions, words, and travels attributed to him. It should be no surprise for effective historical understanding that the start of such research must be the letters. However even within the corpus of letters we confront challenges. Not every letter rises to the level of genuine authenticity. Not all letters ascribed to Paul the apostle truly derive from his voice or hand. Several writings actually come from his disciples, followers, or his “school” that expressed his voice to address and adapt his message to later generations of disciples.

It is not overly critical to assert that in many details for many moderns neither the proponents of Paul and his writings nor his opponents have really hit the mark. We must confess openly that for centuries persons who have read Paul through their own experience and times thereby missing his real thought and passion for Christ and the kingdom. If we become more aware of our assumptions we can do better and we shall try together.

Participants should recognize that our journey will not be a usual commentary verse by verse study. Our theological attention to discern the changes and adaptions introduced over the decades of the first century demands a different method. This aim requires a more comparative approach such as viewing in parallel the teaching from later “Pauline” compositions with the form of the real radical Paul. We might just discover that we have been responding more to a tamed “conservative icon” than the actual first century giant of church planting. - Dr. Jim Christoph

Children's Education
(Age 5-Grade 5)
Sundays 10 a.m.- 10:30 a.m.

All children Grade 5 and under are welcome to Kid's Club! (Parents we ask that if your child is pre-school age at least one parent accompanies them to Kid's Club). We will continue to welcome chidlren to the Godly Play Room, Classroom 3 in the Classroom/Office wing.

We are aiming to build community between the kids, teachers and the church at large. Sharing the love of Jesus and building faith through relationships will be our main goal.  We are remaking Sunday School! Each week starting September 8 your children will be greeted by one of four teachers:
1.Story Telling  /  Carol Alvis
2. Creative Music and Movement  /  Cindy Borr
3. Meet you in the Garden  /  Linda Jakubisin
4. Catch the Light  /  Maria Sciaino & Zenaida Rollins

The first Sunday of each month starting in October, the children will be invited forward at announcement time to tell the congregation something about their life that is exciting, challenging, wonderful or maybe even sad. This is the effort to ensure that the congregation knows the children they are promising to support in their Christian faith and life.

Youth Ministry

(Grades 6-12)

Fall is on the way and it’s time to think about our youth group plans for this coming year. Because almost everyone is busy in other areas of church life such as choir or acolyting or actually working in the real world, we will not have a weekly Sunday morning class. Rather we will meet the second Sunday of each month for a fun-enriching experience where we can enjoy each other’s company and share what’s going on in our lives. The 8th of September is our first outing. We’re going to New Smyrna beach for sun and sand and food and surfing and swimming. We will all come to the 10:30 a.m. service and sit together. Then we’ll leave after service. 

Parents are of course welcome to join us and we will need a couple to drive. PUT THIS DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR NOW! Other events will include bowling, miniature golf, movies, hiking in a forest, canoing the Wekiva River and other excitements.
