► How to Stop the Opioid Crisis (January 17, 24, 31 meets in the Disciple Room) —Dr. Joe Mancini, husband of CUMC member Janet Thompson, will offer a 3 week course based on his book Heroin Death: How to Stop the Opioid Crisis. Sudden, accidental death from heroin has quadrupled since 1999, and prescriptions for pain medication (often known as narcotics) have quadrupled during this same period. This is not a coincidence. Heroin and narcotic pain pills are chemically very similar. Both are opioids, and together, they now cause more deaths than gun shot wounds in this country and almost as many deaths as motor vehicle accidents. Join us to hear Dr. Mancini explain why we are in this crisis and strategies to stop the epidemic.

► The Blood of Christ & the Holy Spirit (January 10-March 21 meets in 101 Market)—Join Kathy Parker to explore the themes of blood, covenant, and the activity of Holy Spirit in the Old and New Testaments. This study is particularly timely as we move toward and through Lent, celebrate Easter, and look toward Pentecost. The same class will be offered during the 11:00 am hour on Sundays (January 7-March 18) in the Disciple Room. The class will focus on a combination of scripture study/discussion during class time and a personal daily prayer practice at home. Questions? Contact Kathy Parker at .
► Saints of the Faith (January 17-March 21 meets in Room 2, 105 Market) - Our Duke Divinity Intern Kelli Hitchman-Craig will lead a discussion of the lives and work of saints as we learn that what makes us saints of God is not our ability to be saintly, but God’s ability to work through sinners.
► Parenting Teenagers (February 7—March 21 meeting place TBD) - Parents of teenagers are invited to gather with Pastor Suzanne Hultman for a time of sharing information, encouragement, and advice as you navigate the unique challenges and blessings of parenting teens.
► And for the Kids—It’s Game Time!!! (January 10-March 21 meets in Room 4, 105 Market) - Kindergarteners through 5th graders will enjoy a time of games with friends and working on mission projects, too.
