FRIDAY CLASSES @ ASCENSION LUTHERAN

9:00 AM

JESUS’ BIBLE II: THE BIG, BIG STORY CONTINUES - A Survey of Jesus’ Bible: We continue where we left off last term in 165 BCE with the rededication of the 2nd Temple. We will move through the intertestamental period into the time of Rabbi Joshua (Jesus). We will examine the Gospel of Matthew to see how the Lord lifts up and configures 14 Old Testament Narratives. The first course IS NOT a prerequisite for the second. This time you will need a Bible to follow along.  Jesus’ Bible: the Big, Big Story II involves a survey of world history and its impact upon the ‘people of God’. More importantly, it will survey the interplay between the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) and Jesus’ mission and ministry.  Ideally, we will demonstrate how and why Jesus is the fulfillment of the Hebrew Bible AND why the BIG, BIG, STORY is also your story. Join Pastor Rob Cosmas (bio) for this exciting adventure.

TRIVIA:  You asked, and we brought back this exciting game!  Teams will have a great time trying to remember songs from their youth (distant past), and try to answer trivia questions on travel, geography, history, current events, literature, etc.  Want to have great fun, laugh, be challenged, and rewarded, then come join the game.  Maryann Risi (bio) is the moderator for this delightful class.

BEGINNING BRIDGE - THIS IS A TWO (2) HOUR CLASS: Marie Gerlach’s session is for those who have never played or need to relearn a lost skill.  PLEASE, this is a class for beginning players, not a place for the experienced to practice.  Marie will cover the basics:  bidding, responding, making a plan, conventions, and practice…practice…practice!  Note: There will be no class on 3 May.

 

POSTURCIZE:  Wake up and warm up your tendons with Posturcize™. Easy, fun, and essential stretches to prepare you for your day and help prevent injury. Janet Harazda (bio) has been teaching and benefitting from Posturcize™ since 1990! No need for any equipment.

MAHJONGG FOR BEGINNERS and INTERMEDIATE PLAYERS:  Mahjongg is a tile-based game that originated in China during the Qing Dynasty.  It is commonly played with four players, and is a game of skill, strategy, calculation and involves a degree of chance.  Beverly Sheffer, Sally Dunn and Judy Lukeman will host this two-hour class. New players will be given specialized attention to learn the game while the more experienced players will play independently. You are encouraged to bring your own Mahjongg cards.

HAVING FUN COOKING WITH ROSI:  Be one of the twenty people who get accepted for this class.  Due to the small size of the kitchen, registration is limited.  Rosi Oberlander (bio) has traveled all over the world and has accumulated many delightful recipes and culinary tidbits along her journeys.  Rosi’s cooking talents are renowned locally and she is willing to cook for us and share her recipes.

THE AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR:  This session will look at the events that shocked the world as the Thirteen Colonies defeated the super European power of Eighteenth Century England.  We will discuss the events leading to the war, the important leaders of both sides, the major battles, and the outcome.  Bill Ross, a retired history teacher of forty years, will be the instructor for the class.

BEGINNING LINE DANCING:  Join Vicki Little as she, once again, leads us in the fun and exercise that is Line Dancing.  This is a class for both the beginner and the experienced since Vicki introduces something new each week.  One of the joys of Line Dancing is it requires no partner, so come join the fun of this low impact exercise

THREE TIMES THREE:  Join Candy Drake (bio) as she relates to you her multiple near-death experiences (NDE) and how earth changes and humankind are so intertwined.  

In Candy’s words:

My classes are called: 3 x 3. Originally this title had to do with my three transitions in this lifetime and my desire to understand how life and Earth change or tied together in human duality. In this semester classes will focus on how and why the linear equation 3 x 3 equals 9 is so meaningful at this time and place of Earth Change. The Number nine means Change and new beginnings. And on February 7, Melbourne Florida experienced an Earthquake. Number seven is a perfect number for this kind of Earth change because it means a completed cycle and is the emblem of the totality of space and movements in the universe.  My classes this semester are about how Earth Change and Human are tied together. My teachings start from the beginnings of Human involvement on Earth and focus on the Ancients who knew a great deal about how and why Earth Changes and how that change effects humankind. The bio section for this semester explains how my classes will teach these ideas and how they are meaningful to Earth Change.

 

My classes are student focused and include printed lesson plans which increase student learning and offer students an easy way to continue to think about the ideas presented in class.

LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL CURRENT EVENTS:  As a former history and civics teacher, as well as a championship Florida high school football coach, Mike Vogt (bio) blitzes the classroom with his arsenal of knowledge about local, state, and national events that shapes the week.  He will begin the class discussing beachside current events and moving on to state and national news.  Occasionally Mike will detour off on that dreaded p-word (politics).  Class participation is highly encouraged!
