Worshiping In Rhythm - February 27 (One Session Class)
Why is the altar and pulpit draped in green? What is the Season of Epiphany and all the other seasons of the church year? And why does Spirit of the Cross observe these seasons? What does it all mean? On Wednesday, February 27, Pastor Richard will teach a ONE SESSION class entitled, “Worshiping In Rhythm - Understanding the Christian Year.” The Christian Year/Calendar has been a part of the worshiping church since the very beginning of Christianity. Once a person understands the rhythm of the Christian seasons and how these seasons and special Sundays link together, one discovers the great faith-forming benefits that generations upon generations of Christians have experienced. There are blessings when one worships in rhythm. Wednesday Night Bible Study begins at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday Night Bible Study will not be held on Weddnesday, March 6. Spirit of the Cross will be joining the United Church of Huntsville (UCC) on March 6 for an evening worship service in observance of Ash Wednesday. The United Church of Huntsville (UCC) will host the service beginning at 7 p.m.
When is Gay Christian 101 going to be taught again?
Each year Pastor Richard teaches "Gay Christian 101" in the spring and fall. This class discusses the six "clobber" passages that are used to oppress LGBTQ people. After teaching on those six verses, Pastor Richard turns attention to the positive and affirming Scriptures for LGBTQ Christians and looks at potential LGBTQ role models in the Bible. Gay Christian 101 is one of the fundamental Bible studies at Spirit of the Cross. This class has been spiritually rewarding to many, including family members and allies of LGBTQ folks. Spring 2019 is the next time the class will be taught. Once the dates are finalized (look for it around the time of Easter), it will be posted on the church's website weeks in advance.
