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
“What Kind of Father is This?” is a three week study July 16, July 23 and July 30 in the Foundations Class at 10 a.m. in the Gym. This is a study of one of the most astonishing, and perhaps confusing, parables of Jesus. Seldom do we hear a story with such clear implications of grace. We think we have misheard. Come, take a new look at this father of the prodigal described in Luke 15. Come, take a new look at how we fit into the story, sometimes as the younger off-spring or sometimes as the older. Sometimes as the one living in the tyranny of the favor line and sometimes as the one in need of a covering. Claire Hertzler will guide us in this fresh look at, “How can I live fully-loved rather than less-loved?”
AUG 6: We welcome Rev. Al LaCour who serves as the Coordinator for RUF International, a Presbyterian international student ministry. Al trains Christians and churches to welcome international students into their homes and churches. Read more here.
AUG 13: Dr. Tharwat Wahba of the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo shares about the Christian Church in Egypt.
AUG 20: The Gray Family shares their miraculous journey with their young son Everett who after two open heart surgeries and multiple hospitalizations, went into heart failure which required a life-saving heart transplant.
AUG 27: The Austria Youth Mission Team shares reflections from their July Trip to Linz, Austria serving alongside NAPC missionaries at House of Hope, a ministry with refugees from around the world. Read their blog here.
