  • Young Adult Class

    Every Sunday at 9:30 am

    Christian Life Center Room 214

    Join The Journey, a small group of young adults, as they study the Parables of Jesus and how their original Jewish audience understood them. The study will look at the parables’ connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs, morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this understanding, you will learn how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
