At Lincoln Square Presbyterian Church, we believe in the good news of God’s grace that God in Christ by the power of His Spirit is remaking us into new women and new men who look like Jesus.
Many questions emerge as God’s people seek to participate in God’s work in the world in light of this gospel of God’s grace. How do I love my neighbor? What does it mean to identify with my neighborhood? Why should I be generous with my resources? What claim does Jesus make on my vocation and work?
Christian Education is one space at LSPC where we seek to engage these questions. Christian Education classes occur for five weeks in the fall leading up to Advent and in the winter/spring during the season of Lent. The classes meet from 9:00 to 10:00am at Waters School before the worship service.
2017 Fall Class: “Images of Christ” led by Dr. Rosalie de Rosset, October 22 - November 12, 9-10 a.m.
This four week class will begin by discussing the Christian’s image of Christ and encouraging attendees to look at his/her personal visual/emotional image of Christ. A brief background for the familiar, Western images of Christ in art will be given. Following this will be a discussion of the emotional life of Christ which has been either under-discussed theologically or handled predictably. Finally the views of various authors’ representations of Christ in novels will be addressed to demonstrate how powerful literature can be in filling out our vision and image of Christ. Child care will be provided in the nursery for all children 4 and younger.
Some of the previous Christian Education classes include:
"Reading the Story of Scripture"
"Practicing Hope: Praying with the Psalms"
"Open Hands From a Full Heart: Living the Generous Gospel"
"Hospitality and Strangers"
"Fear: Our Loves, God's Grace, and Fearing Rightly"
