One of North Avenue’s core values is transformational faith development which suggests that each person continues to grow holistically in knowledge and faith throughout their lifespan.
As our space is limited during construction, we have combined Sunday School classes. Join us for the Foundations Series at 10 a.m. in the Gym on the fourth floor. We welcome NAPC staff, officers, and congregation members, as well as special guests, to teach us.
Upcoming Schedule for Foundations Series
This year marks 500 years since Martin Luther, a German Augustinian monk and professor of theology, published his 95 Theses. The Theses protested elements of Catholic doctrine and a number of specific practices such as the selling of indulgences. The publication quickly spread throughout Europe and launched a religious revolution, changing millions of Christians’ understanding of their relationship to God and ultimately leading to a break from the Catholic Church. We'll be focusing on the Reformation in the Foundations Series during the month of October.
