As schools let out for summer, we’re transitioning to our summer adult Christian-Education series on Sunday mornings at 9:15. Read Kurt Brewer’s invitation to spend your summer in the Psalms with us at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC.
Our next adult Christian-Education series Summer in the Psalms begins Sunday, June 7 one week from this Sunday. But before we begin a new series, we’re taking two weeks to pray for our world and our city. Last week, during the Missions Prayer Breakfast, we prayed for our Redeemer-supported missionaries around the world. This Sunday, May 31 we’ll take some time to pray specifically for our city and our impact in our community.
So here’s the plan for Sunday at 9:30 am during the Christian-Education hour:
Instead of meeting in the Fellowship Hall to pray, we’ll meet at a park right around the corner from us. The newly renovated park is directly behind the Gaillard Auditorium, on the corner of Anson and George streets. You can easily walk there from the church, or you’re welcome to drive over. We’ll hear a brief story from Charleston history about a church that prayed for the city, and then we’ll have our chance to do the same.
Drop any little ones off in their classrooms at the church and head over to the park. Redeemer Kids start in The Children’s Room, and new classes begin this week for middle school and senior high youth. Please join the adults at the park to pray for our city!
At Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we’re excited to announce two NEW Christian-Education classes for our older children and youth! Our patient Covenant youth have been serving as helpers in nursery and in the preschool classes while everyone else has enjoyed a Christian-Ed. class, but starting Sunday, May 31 Lord willing we’ll offer a class for students ages 13-18 (grades 9-12) and another for students ages 10-12 (grades 5-8).
The senior high class (grades 9-12) will be using the “So What?” curriculum by Great Commission Publications, beginning with the study of John 1-10. Teenagers have questions: God’s Word has answers. That’s why Scripture is the heart of each session. Students will examine what the Bible says, learn what it means, and see how it relates to their lives.
The middle school class (grades 5-8) will be using Jesus in the Spotlight, an inductive Bible study written for youth by Kay Arthur and Cyndy Shearer, which teaches careful examination of Scripture using creative methods. Students will pretend to be a film director who makes a movie about Jesus’ life. Their movie will be about the first ten chapters of John’s book, and it will be full of adventures. This hands-on book will help teach the basic skills of Bible study for a lifetime of discovering God’s Word.
Contact Frankie Bennett to get more details about the classes, ask questions, and volunteer to be involved with discipling our youth as we prepare the next generation.
