Adult Spiritual Growth Opportunities

Wednesday Morning Study Group

“The Walk: 5 Essential Practices of the Christian Life,” a study by Rev. Adam Hamilton.

How do we walk with Christ? In this study, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. These five essential practices, which help deepen our life in Christ, are worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith. Each practice is explored, including its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and in the life of the church.

AAPI HERITAGE MONTH ZOOM BOOK DISCUSSION

“Farewell to Manzanar,” by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James Houston. Led by Joylee Gathings.

This is the true story of Jeanne Wakatsuki who, at age 7, was sent to live in the Manzanar internment camp in 1942. Jeanne writes how she struggled to adapt to forced detention and what day-to-day life was like inside the camp. When the war ended, Jeanne again had to adapt to life in L.A., where she continued to be demeaned and oppressed.

It has been 80 years since this dark chapter in America occurred. Overnight Japanese Americans became the enemy and were told to take only what they could carry to the internment camps. Join us to discuss this firsthand recollection of what that was like for a little girl.
