Are you registered?
A) HOW DID WE GET THE BIBLE?
Ever wonder how the Holy Book became holy? What was included and what was left out? Who made these decisions? Is God still speaking through scriptures from thousands of years ago? Explore these questions and more.
B) THE HISTORICAL JESUS
The life of Jesus has been the source of untold books, plays, songs, and artwork. His life changed the course of human history. But who is this wandering rabbi? What was his world like over 2000 years ago? And what does his life mean for us today?
C) PROPHETS: MODERN AND ANCIENT
Prophets speak God’s truth into the world. People do not always want to hear what they have to say, but they speak anyway. Get to know prophets, both ancient and modern and, by their example, discover the face (and voice) of faithful courage.
D) ECO-THEOLOGY: ROOTED IN SCRIPTURE
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The beloved-ness of creation is stamped in the pages of the scriptures and written all around us. What does it mean that God invites us to be co-creators and caretakers of this world? Delve into the connections between scripture, creation, and our human story.
E) MUSIC AND ARTS: LISTENING FOR GOD IN A NOISY WORLD
Everything always seems to be trying to get our attention. How do we hear God’s voice in, through and around, all the noise? Together, we will practice tuning our lives to God’s frequency and listening for where and how God is showing up. This class includes music and arts –no experience necessary, but an openness to trying required.
F) WHO ARE YOU: THE EXPERIENCES THAT SHAPE US
How do your life experiences shape your identity? How do you really know who you are? Using a variety of tools, you will explore your gifts, identity and personality in a way that aims to build confidence that you are who God created you to be.
G) MINDFULNESS, MEDITATION AND FAITH
Stress is a part of life. But there are practices, many of which have deep roots in the church, that offer support and connection. This is a hands-on class that seeks to teach and practice holistic tools.
H) LEADERSHIP 51
Pinecrest is a learning laboratory for leadership. But what happens when you go home? What does faithful leadership look like the rest of the year? How do you continue to be empowered in faith and leadership at church, school, work, and home? Go even deeper into the core tenants of leadership development, rooted in faith.
SEMINAR (18+) — FAITH ON AND AROUND THE BORDERS
Our world celebrates success and people who find themselves in the middle of the mainstream, but the Gospel is often found rooted most strongly with people on the borders. Jesus spent most of his ministry with people living on the edges of society. What does faith look like when you find yourself living on the edge of things due to sexuality, gender identity, immigration status, race, poverty, etc.? What does our discipleship look like when we place ourselves with Jesus and our siblings in the borderlands?
