FaTHoM is offered twice each week. Here are the details…
FaTHoM Wednesday is a mid-week Christian Education evening for the whole family, infants through adults. We call it “FaTHoM” as it help us to “go deeper” in our understanding of God’s love. It is integrally connected with and mirrors our FaTHoM Sunday program, but on Wednesday we can begin with a meal and fellowship together to enhance our connections with each other. The rest of the time together is spent in one of the many electives that are offered for children & adults. It is offered every Wednesday (except during Advent and Lent) when we gather for worship instead of classes. It all begins at 6:00 p.m. followed by fun and fellowship for school-aged children, confirmation classes for our junior high youth, and a series of study electives for adults young and old.
Wednesdays 6:00 p.m. – Starting January 10
¤ “Bible 101” led by Scott Jung. Learn about the books, storyline, and major themes in 12 weeks! A great introduction to God’s Word.
¤ “Bringing Up Boys” led by Cara Hougesen. Explains why boys are the way they are, their emotional and physical development, and the best way to motivate them to be godly men.
¤ “Living Beyond Yourself” – Women’s video-based Bible study of the fruit of the Holy Spirit as presented in the book of Galatians.
You can purchase a meal for FaTHoM Wednesday in advance, or bring your own.
Meals will be available each Wednesday evening to make it easier for busy families to get to FaTHoM. Each Wednesday, you may purchase pizza or Chick-Fil-A. Parents please drop off your child in their respective classrooms, then proceed to the gym to pick up your meal and then take it to the classroom to eat together as a class in your elective. Class discussion will begin at 6:00 p.m. and you may participate as you eat. Children will eat as a class in the gym. Online ordering for meals will allow for ordering on Tuesday of the week you plan to attend (or for the whole year if you wish). The early Christians ate together every day to build relationships, love and care for one another. Join us!
Faith in Jesus is an on-going relationship with God that, like all relationships, needs constant nurture and development. God has provided His Word, the Bible, to help continually strengthen faith. Holy Cross offers many ways to study His Word every Sunday morning from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m. which we call FaTHoM Sunday.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
1 Timothy 3:16-17
