Race: The Power of an Illusion

14671235_1250710531625924_491765085008087289_n.jpg

Most of our most common assumptions about race are wrong, yet the consequences of racism are very real. Join a five-week conversation based off the documentary series, "Race: The Power of an Illusion" to learn about how the illusion of race is embedded in our society, understand the impacts of this illusion, and affect change in our communities. 

All sessions will be held at the Indianola YMCA in the Community Room. Childcare is available.

Visit the facebook page to RSVP or for more information.

Session 1: 
Tues. 9/26, 6-7:30pm
Session 1 Outline: Series Launch & viewing of Episode 1
Episode 1 Synopsis - The Difference Between Us examines the contemporary science - including genetics - that challenges our common sense assumptions that human beings can be bundled into three or four fundamentally different groups according to their physical traits.

Session 2:
Tues. 10/3, 6-7:30pm
Session 2 Outline: Session 1 recap & viewing of Episode 2
Episode 2 Synopsis - Episode 2- The Story We Tell uncovers the roots of the race concept in North America, the 19th century science that legitimated it, and how it came to be held so fiercely in the western imagination. The episode is an eye-opening tale of how race served to rationalize, even justify, American social inequalities as "natural."

Session 3:
Tues. 10/10, 6-7:30pm
Session 3 Outline: Session 2 recap & viewing of Episode 3
Episode 3 Synopsis - Episode 3- The House We Live In asks, If race is not biology, what is it? This episode uncovers how race resides not in nature but in politics, economics and culture. It reveals how our social institutions "make" race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status and wealth to white people.

Session 4:
Tues. 10/17, 6-7:30pm
Session 4 Outline: Session 3 recap, Documentary recap, group discussion. Session 4 will be a time for us to reflect on the documentary and how we've engaged with the material so far, discuss as a group how the material has affected us and what our next steps will be.

Session 5:
Mon. 10/23, 6-7:30pm
Session 5 Outline: Implicit Bias. We'll use the final session to explore implicit bias and discuss how we may or may not even know we have biases. We will use a technique to illustrate implicit bias and how it affects us all.

Baptism Class

Throughout the history of the Christian Church, Baptism has been one of the most universally accepted practices. It is a symbol of our being united with Christ in his death and resurrection. This is a sacred and beautiful opportunity to declare, “I believe the best possible way to live is the way of Jesus, and I am committed to following Christ - daily dying to myself and allowing the resurrected Christ to live in and through me.”

If you have committed to following Jesus and have not yet been baptized,
our BBQ & Baptism would be a perfect opportunity to do so!

Small Group Leaders Meeting

June 4th | 11:30am

Interested in leading a small group this summer? 

Summer is an opportunity for new rhythms of relationships and renewal. Beginning in June we will take a break from Sermon Discussion Guides and will instead be providing a list of Bible or book studies that can be done together, or done individually with encouragement and updates from the group. 

We will have a brief (under 30 minutes) meeting with all small group leaders on Sunday, June 4th, right after church. This meeting will be a chance to share ideas & resources for new or existing small group leaders.

Please let Kate know if you can attend (kate@thegatewaychurch.com). 


Resources

New Testament for Everyone. N. T. Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.

Know Doubt: Embracing Uncertainty in Your Faith by John Ortberg. In this refreshingly candid look at what it takes to live a life of faith, John Ortberg takes an honest look at the misgivings and uncertainties that often shake our beliefs as we navigate through the highs and lows of life.

Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey Philip Yancey explores the intimate place where God and humans meet in Prayer. Polls reveal that 90 percent of people pray. Yet prayer, which should be the most nourishing and uplifting time of the believer’s day, can also be frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Writing as a fellow pilgrim, Yancey probes such questions as: Is God listening? Why should God care about me? If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer? Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent? Why does God sometimes seem close and sometimes seem far away? How can I make prayer more satisfying? Yancey tackles the tough questions and in the process comes up with a fresh new approach to this timeless topic. “I have learned to pray as a privilege, not a duty,” he says, and he invites you to join him on this all-important journey.

Psalms of Ascent from She Reads Truth. The Christian life is a climb—a journey of constant growth, sacrifice, and trusting God for what we cannot see. The Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) were sung by worshipers as they made the journey up to Jerusalem for the annual feasts. They are a series of songs to divide the journey, each one focusing on an essential aspect of the life of a child of God. We’ll dig into these traveling songs with the help of short summary essays and thoughtful, reflective questions for each psalm. Take your pack on your shoulder and walk with us as we pursue God together.

Deeper into Scripture from YouVersion. Deeper Into Scripture is a methodology of scripture reading that instructs, encourages and equips people to read God's Word daily and deeply. We have created a unique four-fold method of bible reading that directs the individual to read a short passage of scripture four times. Each reading is done with a different question, instruction or objective to be considered. This repetitive reading takes us deeply into the Word of God, increases our understanding and draws us closer to Him.

Pentecost Sunday

Ten days after the ascension of Christ and fifty days after his resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples on the day of Pentecost. Pentecost symbolizes a new beginning. It celebrates the unleashing of the Holy Spirit on the world and the empowering of the church to reach the world with the gospel.

In celebrating Pentecost, the church expresses its gratitude for the faithfulness of Christ in fulfilling his promise to send “another counselor” (John 14: 16); celebrates the work of the Spirit in renewing all of creation; and grows in awareness of the immensity of its calling to reach the world with the gospel. And now, with the followers of his own time, we await the coming of the promised Holy Spirit, his gift to his people, through whom we make Christ known to the world.

Baby Dedication

Baby Dedication is a practice in which parents commit themselves to raising their children in the grace and knowledge of the Lord. Dedicating your child to God is a public sign that you are seeking to bring your children up in the ways of Christ, and as a community we stand with you in that passion. 

This service typically includes a Scripture reading, prayer, and a series of vows spoken by parents and the church. We pray for the parents as they strive to teach their child and for our community as we learn to model Christ to our children.

If you are interested in having your child dedicated please contact Kate: kate@thegatewaychurch.com

Good Friday

Good Friday
A Service of Shadows

Good Friday marks the paradox of our faith. The community of God celebrate thefuneral of God. Join us anytime between 6pm - 8pm for an interactive experience of quite reflection and prayer around the Stations of the Cross.

Tonight will be an evening of quiet meditation around the Stations of the Cross - a series of seven depictions of Christ's suffering and death. The journey begins with the Last Supper and culminates in Christ's burial. 

Along the way there will be art, music, and prayers to guide your experience. Scripture readings trace the story of Christ’s passion, music portrays his pathos, and the power of silence and darkness suggests the drama of this momentous day. 

  1. The Shadow of Betrayal at the Last Supper - Mt 26:20-29
  2. The Shadow of the Agony of Spirit and Arrest - Mt 26:36-50
  3. The Shadow of Denial - Mt 26:69-75
  4. The Shadow of Accusation - Mt 27:11-14, 20-29
  5. The Shadow of Crucifixion and Humiliation - Mt 27:31-43
  6. The Shadow of Death | Mt 27:45-54
  7. The Shadow of Burial | Mt 27:57-60

As Good Friday is a solemn event we encourage worshipers to go through the stations in silent prayer and to leave in quite meditation. However, if you would like to receive prayer, our elders are available at each station and would love to pray with you.

Together in the darkness we ponder the depth of Christ’s suffering and death -- but through the small but persistent flame of the Christ candle we anticipate the joy of ultimate victory!

Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday

Join us Ash Wednesday for the beginning of Lent as we gather for the imposition of ashes, holy communion, contemplative prayer and corporate confession.

6:30pm at the Backroom of Noce
1326 Walnut Street, Des Moines

What is Lent?

The Lenten season has been observed throughout the church's history. It starts with Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of 40 days (minus Sundays) leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. Lent is a season of preparation and anticipation. It is a time to reflect on the brokenness of our world and a time to repent for the brokenness in our lives. It is also a time to look ahead to the day when all things will be made new. It climaxes on Holy Week with Jesus being placed in the dark tomb and rising again to launch God’s worldwide project of making the world the right. 

Find out more at http://thegatewaychurch.com/lent

What is the deal with the ashes?

Ashes have long been a symbolic part of Biblical worship. They were a sign of sorrow and mourning (2 Sam. 13v19, Is. 61v3, Jer. 6v26, Ez. 27v30). They were also an act of repentance and turning toward God's face. Daniel says that he "turned [his] face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes" (Dan. 9v3). Jesus uses ashes symbolically to speak of repentance (Matthew 11v21).

As with all spiritual practices, the practices themselves are not the point; the practices point to Jesus. So how can Ash Wednesday, point us to Jesus?

  1. Let it be an act of humility. Make yourself low before the Lord Almighty, theOne who formed us from the dust.
  2. Let it be a confession of mortality. The psalmist urges us to "number our days", to remember that we have limits, that we are finite, that we shall one day return to the dust (Ps. 90:3, 12). Kneel before the "Lord our God our Maker" (Ps. 95:6).
  3. Let it be a time to repent. We do not confess our sins to make God gracious; we confess because we have found that God is gracious. We turn away from self-reliance and self-destruction, and we turn toward the God whose nail-pierced hands are ever and always open to us. Repentance is not about shaming us; it's about making us whole.
  4. Let it be a time to receive God's grace. When we humble ourselves, we find we are met by God's grace (James 4:6).

You don't have to observe Ash Wednesday, but it is a beautiful way to join with the people of God and humbly repent and seek God's face.
