Food For the Soul clipart

In February, we begin a six-week study of Pop Culture and Faith. We begin the conversation on February 16, with Victor Hugo’s epic story of Les MisÚrables.
Les Miserables logo
"...Whether you’ve read the novel, seen the Broadway musical, heard its soundtrack, or seen the several screen adaptations, you already know the power in the story.  In the six-week study, The Grace of Les MisÚrables author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story— grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope—each represented by a character in Hugo’s story. Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the iconic story and musical and our Christian calling, inspiring us to both understand our faith and live it out in the world.”

Tentative schedule:
    February 16, 2020 "Grace Well Received: The Story of Jean Valjean"
    March 15, 2020 "When Grace and Justice Collide: The Story of Javert"
    April 5, 2020 "The Poor Are Always With You: The Story of Fantine"
    April 19, 2020 "The Gift of Love: The Story of Marius and Cosette"
    May 3, 2020 "Building the Barricade: The Story of Les Amis"
    May 17, 2020 "The Blessed Garden: A Hopeful Vision"

Note that on March 1, we will divert from the Les Mis study as Carl Rollins will present on the topic of "Two Natures of Christ".

Our Food For the Soul “dinner church” is usually held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, and includes open discussion, a light supper, and a simple communion service. All are welcome!
