We’re excited to share with you EQUIP, our Wednesday evening program.
As we seek to live out our vision to be “the faithful presence of Jesus’ love in ordinary life,” we recognize that we need help in understanding what it looks like to live faithfully in our homes, our community, our workplaces, and our world. And even more than that, we need a community who we can walk with as we think practically about what it looks like to follow Jesus in an increasingly disorienting and busy world.
To that end, we’ve assembled an outstanding collection of teachers from our congregation and community so that together we can take another step into the life that Jesus is calling us toward in each of the four spheres of ordinary life (home, community, workplace, world). Our hope is that during each of our four-week ‘quarters’ of 2019-2020 you’ll find a class that will be engaging and will equip you to take a next step in being the presence of Jesus’ love for our world. So come and join us and see how God is calling you!
What to Expect
Each quarter is preceded by an all-church gathering where we’ll meet for a time of fun and fellowship or hear from a speaker on a topic that’s important to our vision of being “the faithful presence of Jesus’ love in an ordinary life.” During our quarters, regular children’s, children’s choir, and student activities will take place.
No need to sign up for the seminars – just join us! If you would like help picking a class that’s right for you or have any questions about our offerings, please contact Joey Sherrard, Associate Pastor of Discipleship.
EQUIP Schedule & Recordings
October 23 – November 13
Quarter 2 Schedule
Join us for dinner at 5:30 PM in Dudley Hall and a Service of Thanksgiving and Praise at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary. Together we will name God’s goodness to us and hear stories of God’s faithfulness to one another. As we enter Thanksgiving and the Advent season, let’s make space to remember how generous our God has been to us. The entire church family is welcome at this informal time of worship. The nursery will be available for children up to the age of 3. Children 4 years and older will remain in the Sanctuary with their families. Middle and High School students will attend SM2 Wednesday Night as usual.
Click here for recordings from each week.
Our doors open at 5:30 PM and we serve until 6:30 PM, so if you are running late we will take care of you. In an effort to accommodate a variety of food preferences and dietary needs, each week adults may choose from either a blue plate meal or a soup and salad meal. Children are served a special children’s meal and volunteers are available to assist parents with serving the children’s meals and carrying their food to the table.
It is always helpful to make a reservation, but it’s not required and if plans change we understand. It is our hope that each family will take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and connect with fellow church members each week!
Meal reservations may be made by:
- Signing up on the Ritual of Friendship on Sunday mornings,
- Calling the church at (423) 886-2190, extension 3220 and leaving a voicemail,
- Find the EQUIP schedule, menu, and make reservations on our site!
