Wed Nite Live! Bringing the Word!

 “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42).

What is Wed Nite Live?  WNL is an intentional setting where God’s children of all ages, from 2 years of age to adults, can learn about Christian relationships by gathering together.  Children and youth will engage in Bible Study, Worship Skills, and Fellowship (dinner and a game).  Adults will have a choice of three study options, and everyone will eat together. 

How is Wed Nite Live different from Sunday School?  WNL is a complement to Sunday School and a great way to connect in between Sundays.  The atmosphere is more relaxed, there is time for more fun, and all generations have the opportunity to mingle.  Anyone is welcomed!

  1. THE JESUS FATWAH, “Loving Your Muslim Neighbor as Yourself” - Much of what passes as information about Islam is weed-like disinformation rooted in stereotype and watered by fear. In The Jesus Fatwah, Islamic and Christian scholars offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we can build relationships across the lines of faith.  This five-week DVD series (from the Living the Questions series) features 17 Islamic and Christian scholars including Brian McLaren, Eboo Patel, and Stephen Prothero and a reader guide authored by Rev. Ben Daniel, a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and pastor of Foothills PC in San Jose, CA.  Moderated by Bert Moore and Barbara Bozeman.  
  2. GENERATION TO GENERATION - Calling everyone who has ever had a disagreement with someone else!  Life in community always has things we disagree about, whether it is in our families, our churches, or our national politics.  Join Carol Tate for a class she is calling Generation to Generation for ways to understand conflict, how to deal with it, where it comes from, and what is going on in us that drives our reactions.  Scripture will give us examples both of great conflict and amazing reconciliations. Our own lives will give us plenty to think about, too.  For everyone who wants to learn how to understand and deal with disagreement and have some fun thinking together about why we do what we do, this may be news you can use.  And the best news is—we can get better at it!  Generation to generation, what are you passing on?  Taught by Dr. Carol Tate.

How do I register?  You can register online at www.fpchsv.org or contact Woodward Howard at woodwardhoward@comcast.net.  Registration is required for children, youth, and adults; payment is due by September 6th, 2017.
