About the Event
Soup and Scripture! Have you ever been asked if you are saved? Have you ever wondered what that even means, or what it means to be counted among the "chosen"? If the answer is "yes," (or if you take these ideas for granted), you are encouraged to come and explore these core Christian concepts this Lenten season in our Soup and Scripture program, and draw closer to Christ and others at church in the process. We will meet in Fellowship Hall every Wednesday at 6pm, starting February 21st-March 20th for homemade soup, bread, and good conversation. Then from 6:30-7:30 pm, Rev. Elizabeth McLean and Rev. Dottie LaPenta will offer this year's class:
Reformed and Ever Reforming:
An Exploration of Evolving Understandings of Christ's Saving Work on the Cross.
Participants will learn about two core Christians concepts, the Doctrine of Atonement, that Jesus saved us by dying for our sins on the cross, and the Doctrine of Election, that we are "chosen" by God for salvation. We'll explore how these understandings originally developed, how they have been used and abused by Christians through the ages, and why some modern Christians now say it's time to understand what Jesus did for humanity on the cross in new ways. You don't need to be a Bible scholar, theologian, or lifelong disciple to participate. Sign up in the narthex or contact the church office. Zoom will be available for those who cannot attend in person. All are welcome!
