Religious Education



On this page you will find the notecards for our classes at First UCC Second Life.  The notecards are organized by class and appear in the order in which they are used.  Generally, there is one notecard for each week the class meets.  All times are Second Life Time (SLT) which is identical to U.S. Pacific.

Our Bible and book study classes use seminary level material and are designed for the mature learner.  We do that in an effort to help our friends and members cultivate the tools needed to do Bible and religious topics study on their own.  We also believe that the underlying meanings in the ancient texts are best discovered in their historical and cultural context.  The classes are designed, however, to be a fun experience of discovery and no previous Bible study, religion study or experience is necessary.  Nor is it necessary to attend every week, although we suggest trying to attend regularly for the best experience and the greatest learning.  Each class is offered multiple times during the week to maximize, as much as we can, opportunities to participate.

A complete day and time schedule of classes, worship, and other events can be found on our calendar page.

Notes for all our classes not currently being offered are archived here.

This short course will introduce us to the writer of at least 8 letters in the New Testament.  We will cover aspects of his life, writings and his basic theology.  It will serve as an introduction to our study of Romans, a course which will be scheduled to follow this course.  As always, no previous experience is necessary!  The instructor is Rev. Dr. Jerold A. Garber (aka Jerome Newstart).
