Undercurrents: The Unexplained Symbols of the Biblical world

Rev. Tom Fuerst
October 18, 25; November 1, 8

Every culture has symbols that insiders "naturally" understand and outsiders have to have explained to them. These symbols often make up the big ideas, the cultural values, the assumed meanings of the culture. So, too, ancient biblical persons had their own culture with its unique set of symbols, meanings and values. This study will help illuminate those things, which are generally unexplained in the Bible.

7-Session Christ Academy course on Servant Leadership

Exploring Leadership is designed to train, certify, and consecrate leaders in the church.

Think about this for a moment. New members participate in a one-week Exploring Membership class, and middle school students go through 10 weeks of Confirmation. What’s required of someone to become a leader? How do we identify future leaders?

This course is designed to bring together current lay leadership and emerging young leaders, grounding them in biblical servant leadership practically and theologically.
