Adult Christian Education

Christian education does not happen quickly. Christian education is not something we do once as children—then when we get older, we’ve simply got it. No, Christian education is a lifelong process of learning, believing, growing, and serving. Christian education is a never-ending process that is enabled in Christian community, as Christians continue to study, worship, fellowship, and serve together.

The lessons of Christian education make it possible for us to practice love and to live as children of God. How well we—children, youth, or adults—learn those lessons day by day will determine what kind of church we are Sunday by Sunday.

 

Adult Christian Education (ACE) Sunday morning Classes: All are welcome. Come as you are able when we have a class available.  returns in May. 

A New ACE Class will meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall starting May 1st.  A Glorious Whisper is a 4 part Bible-based study asking “How does God speak to us?’ by John Birch.  It looks at God's relationship with his people in the Old and New Testaments, and believers today - and how God can be heard within the world in which we live.  Contact Janet McCarty, who will be leading the study, for a free pdf downloadable copy or to request a hard copy – jmmccarty70@gmail.com

LENT STUDY: Come join me for this 5 session online study Monday nights in Lent. 

"Entering The Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy Week" by Amy-Jill Levine.  You need to purchase the book online (ie: Amazon or Cokesbury) and read one chapter before each class.  We will discuss the material with the help of a video segment from the author.  She writes "This is not your ordinary Lenton study. . . we delve into the history and literature of the last days of Jesus' life. We find ways to understand and question our own lives through the stories of his trials and choices." Class meets on Zoom at 7 pm on the following Mondays:  March 7, 14, and 21. April 4, 11. Contact the church office to give your name and email address, or sign up in the Gathering Room
