Teach Us, Jeremiah with Sharol Hayner

The Foundations Series welcomes Sharol Hayner, June 11-25. Sharol served in ministry for more than forty years with her late husband, Steve Hayner (former president of Columbia Theological Seminary). At age forty-eight, Sharol began seminary and ultimately graduated from Columbia Theological Seminary. Ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), she served as associate pastor for discipleship at Peachtree Presbyterian Church and now serves as parish associate at Kairos Church. 

Sharol will guide us over three Sunday mornings as we look at three important topics in the prophet Jeremiah’s life—call, suffering, and lament. 
Sunday, June 11:
What did Jeremiah’s call look like? What happens when you believe you’ve heard God’s call, but you encounter difficulty and discouragement? What does God promise when God calls us? 

Sunday, June 18:
Why do we suffer? How are Christians supposed to think about suffering? What does Jeremiah have to say to us? 

Sunday, June 25:
What is lament and why is it important? How did Jeremiah lament? What might lament look like for us? 

Join us in the Foundations Series at 10 a.m. on Sundays in the Gym located on the fourth floor.

NAPC Family Reunion on July 2

Come be a part of special day where we worship and share a meal together! We will have one worship service at 10:15 a.m. featuring the production from the children’s fine arts camp, and then a church picnic in the Gym on the fourth floor.

Like a true family reunion, we’ll have NAPC t-shirts to wear on July 2 that will be available to pick up in the Welcome Center on June 25. Following the worship service, we will gather on the church front steps and take a family photo. 

Then we will head to the Gym for a Church Potluck, picnic style. Last names A-M bring sides, N-Z bring desserts. Let us know what you're bringing here.

 

 

Faith & Film: Women's Summer Bible Study

As we wind down our Wednesday evening and Thursday morning Women’s Bible Studies for the school year, we are excited to change things up a bit with a summer Bible study focused on Faith and Film.

Starting in June, we will dive into a bi-weekly study using movies as the jumping off point for fellowship and conversation. All you need to participate is access to a Netflix account. We kick off on June 14.

If you would like to receive emails about the location of these gatherings, please contact Kay Carlson (kay@napc.org) to be added to the list.

Young Adult Summer Retreat

What is the best way to connect with other young adults (ages 20-45) at North Avenue? Our Young Adult Retreat! Whether you are new or old to NAPC, we want YOU to join us for a weekend full of fun, connection, and storytelling. This year we will be journeying to Americus, GA, where we will learn about Koinonia Farm, an interracial, intentional community founded in the 1940s during the Jim Crow South. From this example of New Testament living, we will explore the theme of reconciliation within our lives. The retreat costs only $40 for the weekend, July 14-16.  As a bonus, we might be able to watch President Jimmy Carter teach his renowned Sunday School class. Register for the retreat here.

First Sundays Coffee

As a church family we have been missing the opportunity to share a meal together on Sundays. Come enjoy a bite to eat and a cup of coffee in the Welcome Center on the first Sundays of the month anytime between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. This is a great place to connect with others at NAPC or to ask questions about the church—or just enjoy some extended fellowship time outside of worship.
