John Roth “Stories”
LEADER: Brie Kruger and Chris Barghout
LOCATION: The Old Chapel
What does it mean to be a Christian with an Anabaptist understanding of faith in 2019? This winter we’re going to read John Roth’s book, “Stories.” A historian at Goshen College, Roth narrates the church’s journey from its early beginnings to the Reformation to the modern-day, global Anabaptist movement. We'll use the history of the church to think about what God is up to in the church today, and, more specifically, what our calling and history as Anabaptists might mean for 2019. We’d love to have people who are new to an Anabaptist understanding of Christian faith AND “ethnic Mennonites” join us.
What is Faith Formation?
Faith Formation at Portland Mennonite Church strives to form a bridge between our Christian faith and everyday lives. Our programs are intended to invite people of all ages to grow in faith. At PMC we are striving to be an Anabaptist community, together, with our children, by the grace of God, that is shaped by the life of Christ, that acts with the compassion of Christ, and worships in the name of Christ.
