New Study: How Then Shall We Live?

We will be launching our new study series, “How Then Shall We Live?” – starting this next week, the first full week of February. It will be a serious and careful reconsideration of the the essential Law of God in the Ten Commandments and the higher way to which Christ calls us in the Beatitudes.

These are familiar passages, but so often passed over too lightly, so that we fail to grasp and apply all that is there. But when studied with due attention, we realize that these divine revelations were given to us as a necessary moral anchor for human life. But there is so much more here than most of us realize. The Ten Commandments and Beatitudes should be foundational to Christian discipleship. But for that to be the case, they must first be opened up, digested, set firmly in heart and mind, and lived out by the grace of God.

This is a short, six-session series, beginning the week of Feb. 6–8, breaking for the week of Ash Wednesday, and continuing on through Lent up to Holy Week – six sessions in all. As usual classes will be held in three locations: Tuesday nights at the St. Irenaeus Center from 7:15 to 9:00, Wednesday nights in Charlotte from 7:15 to 9:00, and Thursday mornings again at the St. Irenaeus Center from 9:30 to 11:30. Each session will involve teaching from the text and guided discussion of practical and spiritual implications.

Please see the flyer for more details, and consider joining us for this series on our moral foundations.

The Mission and Message of St. Paul

Announcing our fall study, The Mission and Message of St. Paul, in nine lessons! I think this will be an exciting study, and a real eye-opener. Classes begin at the end of the month, on the week of September 26. Like usual, studies will be held Tuesday evenings, Wednesday evenings, and Thursday mornings. Do download our flyer for more details.

And by all means, spread the word!

Encountering Jesus Christ in the Gospels

Encountering Jesus Christ in the Gospels

Ten sessions with instructors David Higbee & Ted Janiszewski

What a compelling image emerges from a study of the gospel story – when we see Jesus Christ in more than small snippets. In eleven sessions, we want to reflect on the picture of our Lord given in the four gospels in order to come to a deeper appreciation and a more vital apprehension of Christ himself.

See the flyer for more details, and note the new location for our Tuesday night classes.

Bible Reading Plan Update

We think that as we end the old year and begin the new, the Pastoral Epistles are particularly apt chapter readings. So we continue our chapter-a-day Bible reading plan with 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus.

As always, you can keep up with the daily readings using our online calendar here.

Chesterton 2016 CDs

This year’s Rochester Chesterton Conference was a big success. For those who weren’t able to make it or those who want to revisit the topics that were discussed, we provide CD recordings of each speaker’s talk.

We are currently in the process of editing our recordings. We expect CDs to be available in late October.

Be sure and check this space for updates and ordering information.

Announcing Leviticus

The Way of Holiness and Right Worship:
Studies in the Book of Leviticus

Ten sessions with instructors David Higbee & Ted Janiszewski

To many modern readers the Book of Leviticus can seem obscure and forbidding, yet its ancient laws lay out principles of holiness and right worship, foreshadowing the greater realities we have in Christ.  In rabbinic education, it was the first book taught to Jewish children; and for Christians it undergirds the great themes of the Epistle to the Hebrews and other key New Testament teachings on holiness. We want to open this book up so that you will be able to appreciate and apply what it truly teaches.

See the flyer for more details, including a schedule of lessons.
