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!


Adult education classes are held Sunday mornings from 11:00 a.m. to noon during the academic year in the Christian Education building on the first floor across from the church office. Our theme this year is faithfulness.

Sunday, September 30. The Redmans will lead a class about the great hymn classic “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” and other hymns that embody our theme.
