Adult Christian Formation

Love An “Other”: The Bible’s Call to Unity, Justice, and Equality
Wednesdays at 7 pm on Zoom through June 23

This 5-week class uses five short videos and companion Bible texts to help class members explore the sociological practice of “othering" and the Christian’s responsibility to eradicate it. The videos were produced by Theocademy and feature Rev. Denise Anderson, who recently accepted a new position with the Presbyterian Mission Agency.


Anderson was called as the new coordinator for racial and intercultural justice, working in connection with the agency’s Compassion, Peace, & Justice and Racial Equity & Women’s Intercultural Ministries. She was formally Co-Moderator of the 222nd General Assembly.

Each session will be facilitated by a different class member. Topics and facilitators include:

  1. May 26 “You People” Sarah Mattson Galatians 2:26-28​​​​

  2. June 2 “Better than Good” Don Chesebro Mark 10:17-22

  3. June 9 “We Walk Together” Ardith Hansel Mark 7:24-30

  4. June 16 “Mama Used to Say” Don Chesebro Proverbs 31:1-9

  5. June 23 “Neighborhood Boundaries" Vicki Rockholt Luke 10:25-37

This is a great class to follow our study on the Holy Spirit. Come. You’ll learn. You’ll be challenged. Call the office at 360-452-4781 or email us at administrator@fpcpa.org for Zoom information.
