Adult Education on Sunday Mornings …  During Sept. – May

The Faith & Family Group meets in classroom #3 on the 3rd floor (entry through bell choir room door) at 9 a.m. every Sunday during the academic year (Sept. – May) to discuss topics related to our faith and family relationships. The group is composed of young couples, singles, parents and any in the church who are concerned about issues related to faith and family. We’ve started a new series about our “activities of faith,” such as sacraments, family, food, and more!

On the Christian Life is a class that discusses the influence of theologians and leaders of the Christian church on the faith. This year we will be discussing the life and work of the often maligned, but misunderstood American Puritan, Jonathan Edwards. Edwards has been remembered primarily for one particular “fire and brimstone” sermon studied by most American literature classes; however there was far more to the man and his theology. Edwards saw God in terms of “beauty” and “holiness.” His theology can be especially inspiring and encouraging to us as we walk our Christian life in faith. The class meets in the PW Lounge every Sunday morning at 9:00 and is led by Dr. Ankrum.

Other Adult Education Opportunities …

The Men’s Breakfast & Bible Study meets at Eat’n Park on Rt. 30E every Wednesday morning at 7:45 a.m. for a time of fellowship, study, and, of course, breakfast. We are now studying the Gospel of John under the leadership of Dr. Ankrum.

The Biblical Book of the Month Class gathers on the final Monday evening of each month at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Room of the church.  Dr. Ankrum teaches the class and covers a single book of the Bible each month.  Class will resume in September.  Please consider joining us then.

The Last Tuesday Book Club gathers on the final Tuesday of every month to discuss a particular novel at 7 p.m. in the PW Lounge of the church building.
