Adult Education

We hope to foster adults’ spiritual development in a variety of ways, such as learning new ways of studying biblical texts, rereading familiar Bible passages to find new comfort and meaning, and exploring ways of bringing Christ’s teaching to bear on our daily lives.

We may occasionally use the adult education hour for topics and discussion involving the whole congregation, when noted in the bulletin. Classes are organized in such a way that no week is a prerequisite to the following week’s class. Please join us!

Sunday Adult Education Hour in December:

Adult education classes are held Sunday mornings from 11:00 a.m. to noon in the Christian Education building on the first floor across from the church office.

May 6 – Paul Grier, Vice-president of the Presbyterian Foundation of the PC(USA) will preach AND lead an Adult Ed. class. During the Adult Ed. hour (11-noon) he will talk on “The Intersection of American Philanthropy and Emerging Trends in U.S. Protestantism.”
Paul Grier led a series of seminars for local PC(USA) churches two years ago on church sustainability.
May 13 – Committee Meeting Sunday
Several session committees will meet during the 11-noon hour. Because of Mothers Day Worship and Music met earlier in May. One of the NEW committees, Hospitality, Community Outreach and Communications will meet at this time. A Christian Educational Committee co-chair will be available to answer questions and receive input, as will a Faciities Committee member.
Come join, see what’s going on, and become a part of the work of the church in ways that engage your gifts.
