Church for our New Missional Era

Adult Education by Zoom 9:15 a.m.

October 10, 17, 24, and 31 – Dr. Scott Hagley

Dr. Scott Hagley, Associate Professor of Missiology at the Pittsburgh Presbytery will be OPC’s CCSS speaker starting October 10. His topic will be the Church for our New Missional Era.

 

Sociologists have tracked the decline of Christianity in the U.S. for decades. Beginning in the 1960s, Mainline denominations began to grow older and smaller, losing their younger members to a growing population of religiously unaffiliated persons. By the end of the Twentieth Century, white evangelical communities followed suit. It is now widely accepted that Christian communities in the U.S. are undergoing new pressures and immense changes. But how should we understand these changes? And, what new possibilities for Christian faith and practice do such challenges suggest? Over the course of four weeks, we will explore reasons for the decline of Christian practice in the U.S. with a view to the question: ‘What might God be up to in this new era for the church? And, how might we join in?’

 

Oct. 10: Shallow Soil and Cracked Fountains
Oct. 17: Out of breath and on the road
Oct. 24: Embracing our New Missional Era
Oct. 31: Welcoming the Stranger
