discussion of the great 20th century Christian martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The class

The final six classes will use the adult curriculum from our denomination, Being Reformed-Faith Seeking Understanding-The
Spirituality of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The
study book is an introduction to the life and ministry of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, including his decision to become a theologian,
his decision to give his life to the church, and his decision to remain in Germany in attempt to overthrow Hitler. A
contribution of $6.00 will provide a study book for each participant.

study. A simple soup dinner will be served at 5:30 pm with the study commencing at 6:00 pm. Please plan to

Anyone who can be a
Christian can be a Presbyterian!
word, "presbuteros" in the New Testament means "elder," and is based on the democratic custom of selecting
leaders and advisors from among the members of the church. Presbyterians are a group of Protestants whose church is
founded on this concept of democratic rule under the Word of God.
The Presbyterian denomination is a form of Christianity democratically organized to embrace
the faith common to all Christians. All are welcome to worship the living Triune God. We feature interactive services
of worship in a traditional setting; we gather together in service of the mission of Jesus Christ and reflective study
of the Word of God.
What is the Presbyterian Church? It is a representative
democracy governed by elders elected from and by the congregation. Deacons are also elected to conduct the charitable
ministry of the church.
What do Presbyterians believe? Like other Christians, Presbyterians believe in:
- God, the Creator of the universe
- Christ, the incarnation of God on earth
- The Holy Spirit, the presence of God in
the world and in the believer
- The church, a universal community of Christ's followers
- Forgiveness of sin made possible by the crucifixion of Jesus
- Life everlasting as shown by the resurrection
