ADULT  FAITH FORMATION

Learning will take place Sundays at 10:00 am via Zoom this winter, with three classes offered in succession. We encourage you to engage with others in these very relevant conversations in thenext few months. First, we will begin 2021 by helping each of us to develop Spiritual Resiliency for the New Year on January 10 and 17. Then we will spend a few weeks (January 23 and 31 as well as February 7) talking about the pandemic from a faith perspective. And finally, we will spend six weeks (February 14 though March 21) learning to bridge the divisions that exist in our culture by developing skills to have constructive conversations with those holding different political and ideological views. Pretty relevant. Right?!

Contact the church office at cos@GoodShepherdLancaster.org or 717-393-3958 for Zoom join info.

January 10 and 17 - Spiritual Resiliency for the New Year

Learn new practices that enable you to develop greater resiliency for whatever the new year brings.

January 24 & 31 and February 7 - God and the Pandemic

N.T. Wright’s book (God and the Pandemic) will form the basis for our discussions. You can participate without a book, or order one from HeartsandMindsBooks.com or through Amazon.

February 14 thru March 21 - Talking Across the Divide

We will use Justin Lee’s book, “Talking Across the Divide: How to Communicate with People You Disagree with and Maybe Even Change the World.” Again, that book can be ordered from Hearts and Minds Bookstore or through Amazon, or participate with us without a book.

CHILDREN & YOUTH FAITH FORMATION

January - May 2021 Sunday School Bible Story Videos can be found each week at HERE . To receive the full lesson plan with games and activities, email Pastor Wilson at assocpastor@GoodShepherdLancaster.org.
