Adult Education classes will resume in the Fall. Please check back in late August for a fresh lineup of classes.

Creating Space at the Table: Gender Inclusion 101

 

Gender development and identity is not often talked about in faith communities. However, with gender impacting everyone and 41 percent of gender diverse individuals reporting attempting suicide, there is a growing need for all people to learn to love these individuals and create gender inclusive spaces.

On Monday, September 24 at 7 p.m. in the Culbertson Room we will be lead by the Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital in a session that provides attendees with the opportunity to understand how to support transgender and gender expansive people in church. We will review key terms, recognize the positive impact that their support can have, and receive an overview of best practices.

This session is jointly sponsored by A Joyful Noise Preschool and Adult Education at Kenilworth Union. For additional information, please contact Jo Forrest.

Kelly Mintor, No Other Gods

Please join us on Wednesday, September 12 from 12:45 to 2:30 p.m. for our eight-week Women’s Bible Study from Kelly Minter, No Other Gods. Learning how to identify the functional gods we may be unknowingly serving. Please register with Carolyn Armstrong by Tuesday, September 4. It will be the usual workbook, video, homework, discussion format. Generally about $20/person.

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of loved ones, Instagrammable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you’re missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart’s ultimate treasure.

In this 8-session, revised and expanded study, learn to identify the functional gods you may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell. As you dethrone your modern-day idols, you’ll be set free for the deeper, more abundant life Jesus came to give you—discovering that Jesus can do what no other god can.

This study’s new content reflects how God has continued to grow, teach, and encourage Kelly Minter in her unrivaled pursuit of him.
