Wednesday Night Adult Studies - Winter 2016
Fredericksburg Baptist Heritage – FBC has a distinguished heritage and it is often enjoyable and instructive to look back at some of the events and movements that have helped shape the church. Over the next eight weeks, Dennis Sacrey will lead a study that will highlight some of these events and movements, examine their significance, and see if those events and movements can help provide lessons for our church today as it seeks to continue its heritage of ministry and service into the future. The class will meet in Ferrell Hall in the room set up in the north-west corner. There are no specific study materials, but a review of our church history “Out of Our Hearts” could be helpful. Copies of the book are available for purchase in the church office.
Creation Care – In Genesis 1, humanity is charged with the responsibility of caring for God’s creation. In our world today, we are often faced with options of convenience versus reverence for creation. Mark Houghton will lead a study of ways in which we are called to care for God’s creation, ways we can be intentional in creation care, and how our choices impact creation today and into the future. This group will meet in C-213.

Acrylic Painting Class – Church member, Leah Fromer, is an artist who paints with acrylics and will lead a class in the technique she uses to produce her beautiful pieces. If you are interested in participating in this class, please be looking for a picture you would like to artistically replicate and bring it with you. On Wednesday, January 6, Leah will demonstrate her technique and have a supply list for participants to purchase before the next week. This group will meet in C-211.
Sign Language – Our church is blessed with the gifts of our Silent Friends and we are fortunate to have Becky Bennett interpret in worship each week. Becky will lead an introductory sign language class and one of the tasks of the group will be to learn to sign an anthem that the Sanctuary Choir will be singing in worship. All you need for this class is fingers with which to sign and a mind open to learning! This group will meet in C-212.
Raising Healthy Children - Parent Discussion Group
All parents are welcome to join us for learning and discussion based on what it might look like to raise healthy children. We will discuss body image, spiritual formation, making and maintaining healthy relationships, as well as other topics that will broaden our ideas about what healthy looks like.
Our hope is that this group will challenge and encourage all parents to think about their role as a parent while connecting with other adults who are also striving to raise healthy children. We encourage parents with children of all ages to participate so there is diverse conversation and learning from one another. This group will meet for six weeks in room C-203 and will be lead by Heather Murphy.
Photography Group – Do you enjoy photography? Would like a group with whom to discuss your photography? Would you like to take pictures focusing on a theme? This group will focus on photographing images that represent Lent to the photographers. Each week, you may bring images that the group can view, and listen as the participants describe the way they see Lent depicted in the photographs. These images will be collected in a digital format and shown in the welcome center for some time during the season of Lent. This group will meet in C-209.
