Classes at Geneva are on Summer Break until September 9. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
Our Sunday morning Classes are held every Sunday at 9:00 AM. We offer several short term and full semester classes on a wide range of topics. Whether you are exploring the Christian faith or looking to grow deeper as a follower of Christ, we welcome you to join us.
February 18 and 25: Genevan Cam Anderson will teach a 9 am class entitled "Bezalel, Beauty, and the Contemporary Church." In recent years, a growing number of churches have expressed a desire to have the visual arts become more central to their community life and worship. The book of Exodus supplies a rich account of Bezalel whom God called to design and build the tabernacle. Later, in I Kings and I Chronicles, we meet Hiram who received a similar calling to build the temple. This class revisits God’s call to these artist-artisans, considers the place of beauty in encountering God’s glory in the tabernacle and the temple and, finally, evaluates how these Old Testament accounts may or may not be relevant to contemporary church practices. Cam is executive director of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA), an artist, and author. His new book is The Faithful Artist (InterVarsity Press, 2016).
March 4, 11, 18, 25: (1) An Introduction to Dealing with Science & Faith (3 weeks) - Dr. Ken Sytsma, UW Professor of Botany, will draw from his long career as a scientist to help us navigate questions of science, faith, evolution, and the Bible. Location: Lower Level Fellowship Room. (2) The Book of Daniel (4 weeks) - Dr. Terry Morrison will lead a study of this key Old Testament book and its relevance for us today. Terry's summary: “College grad, forced to emigrate, obtains grad degree in Government and Culture, rises far in his new country, faces terrible challenges but, because he trusts in God, overcomes the opposition.” Location: 2nd Floor Conference Room.
