What is God Doing Here?
Explore with participants how centering local charity around Missio Dei and Imago Dei can radically alter the way we think and practice local outreach. The six-week course would utilize a praxis oriented approach to these themes; offering instruction, dialogue, in-class activities, and optional "homework" (things participants can try in between classes as material for theological reflection).
Participants will leave with a greater understanding of how to discern what God is doing in their local community as well as ways to engage this work with a posture of dignified interdependence. Additionally, activities would be constructed such that FBCD would be able to measure the increasing community involvement of congregants and potentially join congregants in their reaching out to the community.
