Summer Preaching Schedule

While Pastor Matt has been in Chicago for DMin classes, we have
had a stellar lineup of preachers at First Baptist. We have welcomed to the pulpit a wide variety of voices, offering profound
words of hope and challenge. This Sunday will be no exception!

Baptist Churches participant in the Festival of Young Preachers in
2015 and preached at the Biennial Convention in Overland Park,

Defining Belief
Youth Summer Sunday School
Recent local, regional, and national attention to religious identity have inspired this summer's youth Sunday school curriculum. Each week the middle school and high school youth will be examining some basic tenets of various religious cultures. The series started off with a look at different expressions of Christianities. After the youth return from Quest they
will spend a session each Sunday morning focusing on Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and alternative religious movements in
the U.S. The content is not intended to be used as a means for making statements about truth, but rather is geared toward
helping us understand people.
The series will conclude with a session specifically intended to help the youth understand how to navigate conversations
about other religious cultures in a variety of situations. The goal of the series is to help the youth feel empowered to engage in conversations with people from different religious backgrounds as a means of understanding one another. Parents
are invited and encouraged to attend sessions as well.
This series will lead us nicely into the fall curriculum which will encourage the youth to more closely examine and learn to
articulate their own beliefs. If you have questions about either series or would be interested in volunteering to help with
Sunday School this fall, please contact Katie Hobson, or Cheryl Harader,
