Adult Faith Formation:

As we look at new ways to do Faith Formation for adults, we’re taking a small survey. Will you go to the survey (https://goo.gl/forms/nllvOs8qNc3wqPo73) or find the link on the Adult Ministries page of the St. Peder’s website and answer a few questions? This will help us as we plan! Thank you!

now-December 11: “The First Christmas” by Borg and Crossan book study:

Each week we’ll talk through a section of the book. A description of the book from Amazon: In The First Christmas Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan—top Jesus scholars and authors of The Last Week—help us see the real Christmas story buried in the familiar Bible accounts. Basing their interpretations on the two nativity narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Borg and Crossan focus on the literal story—the inner truth rather than the historical facts—to offer a clear and uplifting message of hope and peace. With The First Christmas readers get a fresh, deep, and new understanding of the nativity story, enabling us to better appreciate the powerful message of the Gospels.

Pub Theology: Join us for Pub Theology on December 7 at Parkway Pizza at 7pm!

As we enter into the Christmas season we’ll be having a conversation about the holidays. How can we be responsible and faithful stewards of our resources in a season of consumerism? How do we make time for stillness and reflection when we are continually overbooked? Come to discuss and offer your solutions! People of all ages can join but you must be 21 or over to drink adult beverages!
