January Wed Learning Series
Rev. Dr. Bruce Forbes will lead four Wednesday sessions in January about the history of Christianity, explaining how Christianity became divided into so many different denominations, learning about both inspiring and regrettable aspects of Christian history, and discussing what it all means for us today. The weekly topics:

January 16 – Protestants: Who They Are, What They Stand For, and Their Many Divisions
January 23 - John Wesley and Methodist History: English Beginnings and Dramatic Growth in the United States
January 30 – The Changing Face of American Religion: From Colonial Beginnings, to Frontier Expansion, to the Impact of Massive Immigration, to today’s Rise of the Unaffiliated (the Nones)
Rev. Dr. Forbes recently retired from forty years of full-time teaching in Religious Studies at United Methodist- related Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. He is also an ordained United Methodist minister and has been active in our Fairmount Avenue church family for many years.
