Foundry Fellowship is a large member facilitated Sunday School class with discussion around scriptural and theological book studies like those of N.T. Wright, Adam Hamilton, Will Willimon, James Howell, C.S. Lewis and others.  4-5 class members rotate teaching responsibilities throughout the year.  Once a quarter the class enjoys “Muffin Sunday” with a guest speaker presenting information on a local or global mission opportunity.  Small pastoral care groups overseen by volunteer “tenders” keep track of members’ health and well being on a regular basis, and class joys and concerns are shared weekly with class members through email updates.  We enjoy several social events every year.  Foundry welcomes and affirms persons of all ages and stages.

Francis Asbury
Room 251     9:50 AM – 10:30 AM

Barbara Latta, President

Many years ago our class began as the YOUNG ADULT CLASS.  Today that class has become the FRANCIS ASBURY CLASS for older adults. Many of our present members were in the original class. We love having new members and enjoy lessons by our members plus invited teachers.  One of our favorite lesson books is by James Moore, an inspirational writer.  We also watch an occasional video. We invited the COKESBURY-ISLEY CLASS to join us when their membership declined.  On Fifth Sundays we bring finger foods and juice and enjoy fellowship and a brief program. We have other social occasions such as picnics and Christmas parties. We meet in room 161 down the hall from the 1st floor reception desk every Sunday from 9:50 until 10:30.  Come join us!

Room 166     10:00 AM

Learning in Fellowship Together … LIFT … is facilitated by class members (strictly by choice…not required). We have gone through books with and without DVDs by a variety of authors.  While our lesson is from 10AM to 10:30AM, we do have fellowship and treats beginning shortly after 9:30AM.  We have a meal together during the Christmas season and other times on occasion.  We are a small class of senior citizens who love to laugh, share our faith and our stories.  Although our door closes at 10, we do have an “open door” policy and welcome visitors or new members all the time.  Life, as our faith, is a journey.  It is wonderful to share the adventure.  Amen!
