The Seekers and The ROCK Sunday School classes will be combined on January 13, 20 and 27, for a special overview of David Seel’s book, The New Copernicans.
Please note earlier start time of 8:45 A.M.
The label “New Copernican” was coined by Mr. Seel, and it comes from the 15th-century mathematician and astronomer, Copernicus, who came to see the world in a new way (sun-centered) rather than in the way everyone else saw it (earth-centered). “New Copernicans” are those who are seeing the world and our culture in a new way, and the generation known as “millennials” (20s and 30s) are the best exemplars of our new culture and are best positioned to be our mentors as we navigate new times for the church. We might even suggest that Jesus was a “New Copernican” for his time. He certainly understood the journey of faith in a way that turned everything upside down!
Pastor Cheryl Garbe invites you to join in a discussion about “New Copernicans” as we consider how First Wayne Street UMC can be relevant, faithful and fruitful for Christ in this current culture.
The Seekers and The ROCK adult Sunday School classes will meet 8:45 to 9:30 A.M. January 13, 20 and 27, in the second-floor parlor. The three-part presentation of “The New Copernicans” will look at: Who are they? How do they think? How is that relevant for Christian ministry and FWS?
This three-part series is a self-contained overview of The New Copernicans for those who do not necessarily plan to read the book or to attend the six-week book study during Making the Connection.
We look forward to seeing you!
