At Starview UCC, we believe that Christian Education (Faith Development) is a very important part of our spiritual lives and our relationship with Christ and one another. Therefore, we offer not only Sunday morning Christian Education classes, but also mid-week studies and a Vacation Bible School. Topics and the material used to study those topics are quite diverse. For example, on Sunday mornings, our youngest children are learning different Bible Stories and discussing how they are relevant in their lives - even at their young age. But here is the REAL KICKER - they are learning how to create and edit their own "videos" of the biblical stories and then posting them as a witness on YouTube.

together, how we might be the unique ministers God is creating us to be—every day, every where.

Book and Movie Studies
We talk as though we understand the term. The bank gives us a grace period. The seedy politician falls from grace. Musicians speak of a grace note. We describe an actress as gracious, a dancer as graceful. We use the word for hospitals, baby girls, kings, and pre-meal prayers. We talk as though we know what grace means. But do we really understand it? Have we settled for wimpy grace? It politely occupies a phrase in a hymn, fits nicely on a church sign. Never causes trouble or demands a response. When asked, "Do you believe in grace?" who could say no? Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly. Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Let’s make certain grace gets you.
