GROW (spiritual growth)

sunday am adult education

Christians are life-long learners. Our adult education classes are a place to ask, to seek, to connect, to discuss, and to wonder about things that matter. All classes begin at 9:15 AM.

Adult Education Lenten Term

March 5 - April 9 | 9:15 AM

Asking the Hard Questions: Pressure Points | Choir Room

This class explores thorny issues and new ideas that challenge us, the 21st century church, where we live— at the intersection of our faith and the world. We discuss weighty and important topics with an interactive, non-judgmental approach, which fosters a safe environment where no question is trivial or too “dumb” to ask. In fact, different viewpoints and life experiences enhance our spirited conversations.

Lent | We will continue reading The End of White Christian America by Robert P. Jones.

Class Hosts: Denise Snodgrass, Bill and Anne Satterfield

The Improv: Responsive Faith in an Ever-Changing World | Jerusalem Room

A static faith can be unhelpful in addressing a dynamic and changing world. The Improv class looks at scripture, life, and practice through various theological lenses, seeking to discover credible and promising ground for faithful improvisation in our lives.

Lent | We will be using Henri Nouwen’s book, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World.

Class Host: Dean Presson

Digging In: Encountering Scripture | Sunroom

This class reads the Bible, as well as other works that engage the Bible, with the expectation that - whether we come to the text with trust or skepticism, find it comforting or disturbing, have been reading it our whole lives or are cracking it

open for the first time - the Bible has something to say about who God is and who we are, both of which are deeply important for how we live.

Lent | We are engaging in a study of the season of Lent using the book Illuminating Lent by Donald McKim.

Class Hosts: Scott & Phyllis Engels, Mary Lou Nash
