Summer 2022 Classes

Summer 2022 Classes

We're excited to offer learning opportunities in 2022. See our new classes offered below:

Being Formed with Pastor Geoff

Sundays, May 1 to 22 | 11:00am to 12:00pm

Location: Fellowship Center

Instructor: Pastor Geoff Kohler

A foundational aspect of faith is to grow spiritually sound. People make all sorts of valiant efforts in this direction, but the Bible assures us that this is, primarily, the work of the Holy Spirit as it takes up residence in our souls. The Spirit forms us into Christlikeness for the benefit of others. At the same time, we can participate in the process by not fighting against it and by recognizing and celebrating it. Pastor Geoff will be leading this four week class in the process of Spiritual Formation.

From Judaism to Christianity with Abbe Willner

Sundays, May 29 to July 31 | 11:00 am to 12:00pm

Location: Fellowship Center

Instructor: Abbe Willner

In previous years we have summarized the ‘story’ of the Old Testament, paying particular attention to the ‘Law and the Prophets’. Now, after a short examination of the ‘Time Between the Testaments’, we will dive into the Gospel of Matthew, commonly known as the ‘Gospel to the Jews’. Comparing the Ten Commandments to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount will be the central feature of this study. We’ll also discuss the effect of the Judeo- Christian ethic of the Bible on today’s society and our own lives.

Revelation with Dr. Mofid Wasef

Tuesdays (7:00 pm) & Wednesdays (10:00 am), starting May 3rd

Location: Fellowship Center

Instructor: Rev. Dr. Mofid Wasef

This semester Pastor Mofid will teach through the Book of Revelation. He will assist the student with the Apostle John’s use of vivid imagery, show how John writes Revelation to reveal the end of human history, the return of Christ, and the establishment of a new heaven and a new earth. Pastor Mofid will focus on John’s message of hope in Revelation assures Christians that God is in sovereign control of all past, present, and future events. Come to this class and be encouraged to trust that Jesus Christ will judge the lost and will rule in ultimate victory over all human and demonic opposition.

To accommodate those unable to make a morning class, an identical class on Revelations will run Tuesday Evenings at 7:00 p.m. and will also be taught by Pastor Mofid. 

Contact Pastor Mofid at or come to class on Tuesday Evenings or Wedneday Mornings.

Healing Art Workshops

Wednesday, May 25, June 22, July 27

6:30 - 8:30 pm

Location: Upper Courtside

Facilitator: Andy Watt 

We invite you (kids and adults) to participate in one or all three healing art workshops offered this summer developed by A Window Between Worlds (AWBW). Creating art is a human right. Art honors and reflects multiple aspects of a person’s identity and personal experiences. No matter what our background, we all have the power to create —we just need to be offered the opportunity. The Windows Program provides this opportunity in a safe atmosphere.

The AWBW philosophy is grounded in the idea that the art workshops are a “Window of Time” — a safe, non-judgmental space where participants can authentically express their identity, hopes, dreams, experiences and truths. In this environment, participants can fully benefit from the process of creating art.

During a Windows workshop there is no right or wrong way. Whatever supports participants in expressing, connecting and attending to their needs and feelings is the number one priority. The Windows workshops are an opportunity for participants to practice how they want to live in the world. This includes asking for what they need and choosing to share as much or as little as they want. All materials will be provided, and no artistic ability is required. Sessions will be streamed on Zoom (link to be provided) for those who cannot attend in person.

Do Enter Door Hanger - May 25

Life is Sweet - June 22

Touchstone Journey Workshop - July 27

Issues on Science and Faith

Wednesdays, May 25 – June 29 | 7:00 – 8:00 pm 

Location: Fellowship Center

Instructor: Dee Puntenney

Atheistic naturalists and fundamentalist Christians agree on little. But they generally agree that one cannot be a Christian and believe in an ancient, vast universe and an old earth filled with life forms governed by the laws of natural selection. Yet, there exists a thriving community of scientists who do believe in the fundamental laws of physics and biology and are also committed Christian believers. In this six-week class, the participants will examine perceived points of tension between science and religion and how theologians and scientists have tried to resolve that tension. This course will be loosely based on the book “The Language of Science and Faith” by Francis Collins and Karl Giberson. The book is readily available from Amazon and other sources but purchase is not essential for participation in the class.

Men @ RB Community Church

Thursdays | 6:30am

Location: Zoom
