Adult Programs

Cherry Hill offers a variety of programs for adults.

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN 

There are two women’s bible study circles, Pikeville Circle – which meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Henry Ford Village and also Peace Circle – which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the church. Both circles are using the Presbyterian Women Horizons study for 2016-2017 : Who is Jesus – What a Difference a Lens Makes by Judy Yates Siker. In this study, Ms. Siker invites participants to join her on “a journey to expand our understanding of who Jesus was and is –  a journey of ours hearts and our minds, a journey that we will take together. Together we will share with one another how we see and experience the various lenses through which we see Jesus and how these different perspectives impact our understanding of who Jesus is.

See Elaine Filiak or Mary Boudreau and join us at one of our monthly Circle meetings.

 

2017 LENTEN STUDY 

“HE CHOSE THE NAILS”

Sunday Mornings 8:45 am

Monday Evenings 7:00 pm

Chapel Parlor

                 Max Lucado’s understated homiletical style has propelled sales of more than 15 million books.  His loyal following will in no way be disappointed with this latest offering, “He Chose the Nails,” which focuses on the “gifts” of the cross, including the soldiers’ spit, the crown of thorns, the nails, the wine-soaked sponge, the burial garments and Pilate’s sign identifying Jesus as the King of the Jews. Each of these tragic objects teaches Christians something about the nature of God, says Lucado. The wine-soaked sponge, for example, offered when Jesus spoke of his thirst while dying on the cross, demonstrates how God through Jesus took on the entire human experience, complete with its suffering. “To take on our sins is one thing, but to take on our sunburns, our sore throats? To experience death, yes–but to put up with life?” Jesus did this so that his followers would fully trust him, Lucado explains, and know that their pain was understood. Lucado uses good humor and everyday situations (such as coping with road rage) to bring his points home. His skill in highlighting even the smallest detail of the crucifixion scene will prove an epiphany for many readers.

This insightful  study will be offered on Sunday Mornings at  8:45 am  & Monday Evenings at  7:00 pm in Chapel Parlor.  Copies of He Chose the Nails are available for $10.00 per copy for those who wish to purchase and do additional reading.  Discussion schedule is as follows:

March 5/6            He Chose to Be One of Us

March 12/13        He Chose to Forgive Us

March 19/20        He Chose to Invite Us Into His Presence
