Adult Education

Bible “Study” is perhaps a misnomer in our church. Our Adult Ed, or Faith4Life programs, are about:

  • Sharing our individual faith journeys with one another.
  • Wrestling with life’s tough questions – e.g. “If God is a loving God, why do the innocent suffer?”
  • Exploring what God is calling me, as a Christian, to be and do in the world?
  • Studying the Bible and other challenging writings by great people of faith.

While our emphasis is on the Bible and other Christian writings, we also explore the wisdom of other faith traditions. We provide a safe place to bring our doubts and we challenge one another to grow. Although we may disagree with one another, we support one another in our search. We find affirmation in our search for the truth as we strive to “live the questions now.”

There are many opportunities to take part in our Faith4Life programs. Below are some of our “standard” times during the programmatic year (generally mid-September to mid-June); other studies may run for a few weeks at other times of the week.

  • Tuesdays from 10-11:30AM
  • Thursdays from 10-11:30AM
  • Sundays from 9:15-10:15AM
  • Women’s Circle, first Wednesday of the month from 10:30AM-Noon

ALL are welcome to attend any of these sessions! The Thursday study is set up that you can “pop in” when you can. The other study times cover a reading that is done beforehand, so a little prep is required before attending.

Please contact the church office if you would like more information about our Faith4Life program.

Faith4Life Lenten Studies

Sunday or Thursday Mornings
Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:15 or Thursday mornings beginning at 10 in the library or on Zoom as we explore the gospel of Luke with Adam Hamilton for Lent. Instead of giving up something for Lent, how about adding roughly 40 verses from Luke to your day? If you want to read the Gospel of Luke for Lent, you can download a 40-day reading plan.  We’ll be watching Adam Hamilton on video and discussing Luke in his series, Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws. You can watch a short video of Hamilton talking about his book. Optional books are available in the office for $12.

Tuesday Mornings
Join us as we continue our study, Signs & Wonders by Amy-Jill Levine.

The Women’s Circle meets at 10:30 AM on the first Wednesday of each month.
We will continue with our Centering Prayer group on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM.
Our Disciple Study group continues to meet weekly at 7:30 PM

Women @ the Well will meet on March 4 
The Men’s Breakfast will be held on March 18

Important: Please note that you do not have to be a member of our congregation to join us for any of these offerings. If you know some- one who is might be interested in any of these topics, feel free to invite them to attend.
