Gospel Academies are semi-regular learning series on different theological and gospel related topics. This summer Assistant Pastor Brent is leading some Core Courses, perfect for those who are curious about the essential building blocks of the Christian faith, and for new believers. The segments will run as follows:
- Gospel Academy I: Gospel
June 28, 2017 (1 session) 7:30-9pm
Join us to explore the three primary ways that the New Testament defines the gospel. We will examine how the gospel brings about salvation, healing, and freedom from slavery to sin. We will dive into the impact of the gospel for everyday life. Bring a curious friend, family member, or colleague!
- Gospel Academy II: Bible
July 19 and 26 (2 sessions) 7:30-9pm
Scripture is the manual for all we do as gospel ambassadors. Why can we trust it? How did it come together? What are the different parts and genres? How do I find what I'm looking for? How do I study it? We'll address these questions and more.
- Gospel Academy IV: Mission
August 2, 16, 23, 30 (4 sessions) 7:30-9pm
All Christians are called to be on mission. In this course you will learn how to proclaim the gospel in word and deed, how to salt the workplace and your neighborhood with the gospel, how to aid a seeker in learning about Christ, and how to pray with someone to receive Christ.

Women's Bible Study, Ongoing
The women of Solano will be studying "Armor of God" by Pricilla Shirer starting on Wednesday mornings. We will be meeting at Grace Lutheran, 15 Santa Fe Ave, El Cerrito, CA 94530. Join us on Wednesdays, 9:30 am- 11:30 am as we spend time in community and the word. Childcare will be available. For more information, please email Alyssa at email@example.com.
Help serve the those in need in the East Bay.
As Jesus encouraged us to serve the poor & disenfranchised in our communities, Solano has for several years made homeless outreach a central part of our mission. As such, a year ago we helped establish Albany's free shower program for people experiencing homelessness. We are currently looking for occasional or regular volunteers to help with a variety of tasks on Thursday mornings (8-9am) OR afternoons (1-3pm) for sandwich prep, sandwich distribution, welcoming team, etc. For more details contact Evelyne St-Louis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
