Fall Renewing our Minds Class: “Creation, Culture, and Creed”| Joshua Moritz, PhD
Begins September 9th, 9:00-10:15| Childcare Provided
This class will consider the truth of who we are in light of the reality of God. We will examine the foundations of the Christian faith through exploring the first line of the Nicene Creed in light of Scripture, culture, science, philosophy, and personal experience and meaningfulness. We will begin by looking at who “we” are: Who does scripture say we are? What does science say? How are we shaped by our biology and by our cultures? How are we formed by the story we find ourselves in? Next, we will examine the nature of faith: What does it mean to “believe”? What role do reason and faith play in belief? What is the function of doubt in forging even stronger belief? Finally, we will examine who God is and what God is like: Does God exist? Who is God the Father? What does it mean for God to be almighty? What is the significance of God as the creator of all that is?
September Welcome Sundays| Fellowship in the Courtyard after Worship
Each Sunday in September we invite everyone to join us in the courtyard for refreshments and conversation. This is a great way to get to know someone new, learn about small group Bible studies, and get connected to the Berkeley Covenant community. All welcome!
After a summer without small groups gathering, it is time to reengage. If you are returning to your small group or looking for something new, be sure to keep your eyes open for small groups starting back up the second week of September. If you are interested in joining a group and need help finding one, please click here to find a contact person: Small Group Contacts.
