Elementary and Middle School
At Hughes, we strive to provide youth of all ages a firm foundation for their Christian faith with an interactive and engaging cirriculum. This year we are using Live B.I.G. (Belief in God).
Live B.I.G., is being applauded for engaging children in Sunday school. Live B.I.G. is designed to help children ages 3-13 learn about the love of God through Jesus so they can live their “Belief in God.” Leaders are supplied with resources that go beyond the classroom and engage children with Christian role models and a deeper understanding of Jesus and the impact he can have on their lives.
Through these resources leaders and children will come to know and love God and Jesus so that they can answer the question, “How can I live B.I.G.?”
This year, our high school youth will view and discuss a variety of nooma videos presenting issues facing modern Christians.
We offer a staffed Nursery School for youth under the age of 2.
Adult Small Group Study
Koffee Klatch: Beginning February 6, Koffee Klatch will study the Gospel of Matthew, using Bishop N.T. Wright’s Everyone Bible Study. Bishop Wright is a renowned New Testament scholar and his insights will enhance our reading and understanding of Matthew’s Gospel. Sunday worship scriptures will focus on Matthew through Easter. Pastor Ken is the leader for Coffee Klatch, which meets on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. in the parlor.
The Colesville Group: The Colesville Community: will be reading and discussing “The Book of Joy” by Douglas Abrams. In April 2015, Archbishop Desmond Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama’s home in India to celebrate His Holiness’s eightieth birthday, and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their lives to answer one question: How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering? They offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, of courage, and of joy to which we all aspire in our own lives. The Colesville Community meets Tuesdays at 7 PM at the residence of George and Liz Kilpatrick.
Thursday Night Group: Our winter-spring bible study begins February 1 and will meet for six Thursdays at the home of Marjorie Watt at 7 p.m. Each session will last for ninety minutes.
The program will use a DVD format with six lessons on the topics pertaining to the last days in the life of Jesus. The topics will include:
Peter being asked by Jesus "Who do you say I am"?
No meeting on March 8
Contact the church for more details regarding any of these groups.
