The Reformation and Luther led by Pastor Nate. The Protestant Reformation was the 16th century religious, political, intellectual and cultural upheaval that splintered Catholic Europe, setting in place the structures and beliefs that would define the continent in the modern era. In northern and central Europe, reformers like Martin Luther, John Calvin and Henry VIII challenged papal authority and questioned the Catholic Church’s ability to define Christian practice. They argued for a religious and political redistribution of power into the hands of Bible- and pamphlet-reading pastors and princes. The disruption triggered wars, persecutions and the so-called Counter Reformation, the Catholic Church’s delayed but forceful response to the Protestants. Pastor Nate will cover the 11 points of faith and theology that were foundational to the Reformation
Mental Illness is Not a Choice is continuing with Barb Green and Sue Cruzan as teachers. New people are welcome to join this class.
One in 7 of the adults and one in 5 of the children sitting near you in church may have a form of mental illness. Due to the stigma attached to mental illness, those who are ill are often too ashamed to let us know what they are experiencing. How should we as church members react to these statistics?
The church has been called to continue Jesus’ healing ministry and yet many have turned their back on mental health issues. What should the Church’s role be? How can we understand more? What does scripture say? How can we as a church respond? How can we as individuals respond? In this class we will discuss these questions and hopefully find some answers through Bible Study, videos, personal stories and other methods.
This quarter, we will host several guest speakers:
January 27– Denise Sobieski, facilitator of mental health support group at Janesville Faith Community church
February 3– Michael and Alita Dorn- founders of Project Maria for eating disorders
