A. Epiphany Light  – Mark Weilnau will pick up where he left off last fall for further study of the Gospel of John.  The Word of God became a human being in Jesus Christ to shine His creative light into our fallen world to bring about a new creation. Come and see how the Light of Christ dispels all the darkness in our world even the darkness of death.  And you didn’t have to attend the first session to join in!  (January 11 – February 8)

B.  Chistianity: Hard Questions, Helpful Answers – Do you have questions about Christianity that are difficult to resolve?  Have you had a family member or friend ask you a tough question and you wished that you had a more helpful response?  In this class, we will talk about how to be prepared with a better answer to tough questions, and provide “a reason for the hope that is in us . . .”  Study and discussion led by Dave Van Norstrand  (January 11 – February 8)

C.  Bridge Building Worship: Behind the Scenes – When we worship, we speak and sing to God and listen as God speaks to us in His Word.  In this series, St. Andrew worship planners will take you behind the scenes to describe how music is selected and worship is designed.  We’ll also talk about styles of music and worship and the ways in which our worship life takes place in the context of society, culture, relationships, current events, personal milestones, and the rich history of our faith.  Join Pastor Hricko and Ruth Heilman for an eye-opening discussion.  (January 11 – 25)

D.  Reluctant Witnesses: Learning How to Share Your Faith – Are you reluctant to talk about your faith with others for fear of being rejected? If so, you’re part of a majority of Christians in the U.S. who have these fears. In this course we will discuss how to overcome them and experience the joy of witnessing to your faith through spiritual conversations with people in your life. Join Pastor Bob Mordhorst and discover the joy of witnessing the Gospel of Christ to others. (February 1 – 8)
