Home > Beyond Sundays

Beyond Sundays is a Christian Education & Discipleship Ministry opportunity to take discipleship outside the church walls throughout the week. These self-generated faith formation ministries, such as Bible studies, mission-focused groups, or interest groups, are open to the Salisbury Presbyterian Church congregation and the greater community. If you would like more information about offering a study or group through the Christian Education & Discipleship ministry team, or you would like to feel your way through what something might look like, please contact Dan Wiard at the church.

Journey to a Healthier Life: The Daniel Plan

“Community has the power to change our overall health more than any doctor or clinic. What you do with your body sets the tone for everything else.  Physical health influences your mental health, and even your financial health.”- Rick Warren, from the book, The Daniel Plan.

Join me on a 40 day journey to a healthier life! The Daniel Plan is more than a diet.  “It is a lifestyle program based on biblical principles and five essential components: Food, Fitness, Focus, Faith and Friends.”

We can have one or more small groups in this study to support each other on this journey. I can lead a day time or evening small group, or both.  The website http://www.danielplan.com/has everything we need to be successful!  There is an App!  There is a Facebook page!  It’s on Instagram! And of course there are books, study guides, journals and a daily devotional.

If you need to loose a few or more pounds, if you need to cut back on vices or drop bad habits, or if you just need to work at keeping God first in your life, join me on this journey to a well balanced life led by God and supported by each other.  Contact me at kap.sailor@gmail.com, 804-539-2320 or the church office if you are interested in joining a study group to go on a 40 day journey to a healthier life.

Beyond Sundays: What Is The Bible?

Rob Bell wants us to read the Bible in a whole new way.  Because Jesus lived in a 1st Century Jewish world of politics and economics, common stories and inside jokes, Bell believes the more we know about that world, the more Jesus and His message will come to life.  This Beyond Sunday small group will discuss this provocative way of reading the Bible with our eyes opened wide to the “background and hints and meaning and innuendo and humor and tension and history” behind the Bible stories and figures that we have known since childhood. Mondays, 7-8:15 p.m. September 17 – November 5, 2018.  This event is hosted outside the church, for more information please contact Dan Wiard.
