Adult Education

We hope to foster teens’and 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 Christian 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!
