The style of the class is lecture format, with plenty of opportunities for questions and lively discussion.  

“Setting the Record Straight” – In Defense of the Apostle Paul

Critics of the Apostle Paul have accused him of having a negative view of women. In a letter to the congregation at Corinth, Paul writes that women should keep silent in church and if they have any questions, they should ask their husbands. And in the first letter to Timothy, Paul asserts that a woman should never teach or have authority over a man.

But what if extenuating circumstances in the church at Corinth led Paul to his harsh statement about women keeping silent?

And what if Paul wasn’t the author of the letter to Timothy?

What if Paul had a high regard for women, treated them as equal partners in ministry, and believed that gender distinctions had no place where the Gospel was concerned?

We will meet on Mondays – July 15, July 22, July 29, and Aug. 5 – from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. in the Trinity Center.

“Holy Spirit Power: The Acts of the Apostles”

The Christian Church traces its birth to the day of Pentecost – when the gift of the Holy Spirit was given to the disciples and other believers gathered in Jerusalem. The city was swarming with thousands of Jews who travelled from all over the world for the annual celebration of the Festival of Weeks. Their witness of the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples like “tongues of fire” and hearing of the Gospel in their native language would forever change the course of history!

And yet …

  • What drove the Disciples to stand firm in the midst of widespread persecution?
  • How is it that the Gospel spread from Jerusalem to Syria, Galatia, Macedonia, modern-day Turkey, and beyond?
  • Was there peace and harmony in the ancient Church, or disagreements and discord?
  • How did Jewish and Gentile Christians overcome their religious and cultural differences?
  • What compelled Saul of Tarsus, chief persecutor of the Church, to become its chief Apostle?
  • And what does all of this mean for believers today?

Join Rev. Tammy Heinrich for this year-long study at our Greenbay campus as we explore together the Acts of the Apostles.  The style of the class is lecture format, with plenty of opportunities for questions and lively discussion.

The class will begin on Monday, Sept 9, and continue weekly (with some time off during holidays) through May 20.  The course will be offered in-person and by zoom and recorded each week for those who miss a session.
