Although the gospels mention the word “church” only a few times, beginning in the Acts of the Apostles, the New Testament is filled with repeated stories of the first century church, along with instructions on what it means to be the church. This study will highlight some of the most important lessons of the early church and challenge us to apply those lessons today.
The Church: Faith for new generations
It’s not difficult to see the change in demographics in many churches, and with the change, the question is repeated again and again: “Where are all the young people?” This issue will explore the complex answers to that question and celebrate the new ways younger generations are redefining and living out their faith. Also featured will be reports about the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2018 journey to Cuba.
The Church: Celebrating “herstory”
Women have shaped the church from its beginning, and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is no exception to that “herstory.” This issue will feature stories of women who are living out their faith and gathering around the Table in remarkably diverse ways. Reports will continue from the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2018 journey to Cuba.
The Church: What’s next is now
In our rapidly changing culture, what does church look like? In this issue, readers will encounter creative ways of being church that are helping Christians reimagine what God is calling them to be and do. Church is more than a building, as these congregations are demonstrating. Reports will conclude from the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2018 journey to Cuba.
