The following adult classes meet each Sunday from 9:45 to 10:45am, except during the summer.
The Present Word Class engages participants in Bible Study and its application to life — enabling the growth of participants as children of God rooted in the Christian community, life in the Spirit, and Christian hope. The class is led by Blair Engle and John Effland, and meets in Room 109A.
Women’s Sunday Fellowship is an informal women’s gathering for prayer, sharing, and reflection. During the week, participants receive an email devotional that serves as the starting point for Sunday discussions. Pam Odom facilitates this group, which meets in Room 105.
The Inquiring Believers’ Class uses a weekly emailed curriculum, The Wired Word, as the basis of discussion of a current news event, in the light of Christian faith and Scripture. Bob Harris leads this class, which meets in the Library (Room 106).
The Bible Study Class is discussing one chapter of The Bible each week this fall. The class time is spent in exploration and open discussion of the chapter and its meaning for life today, as well as building community through the sharing of joys and concerns and prayer. Cindy Cass facilitates this study, which meets in the church Parlor (Room 101).
Last fall, we launched a Christian Fundamentals course to cover basic areas of the Christian faith and life in four classes. In January James Barkley will be teaching the second class of this course entitled: “An Introduction to Our Faith.” This 10-week class will identify and explore the core elements of the Christian faith. The class will begin on January 15 with the question “Who is God?” exploring various passages of the Bible and considering short excerpts from C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, N.T. Wright’s Simply Christian, and Donald McKim’s Presbyterian Questions, Presbyterian Answers. The class will meet at 9:45am in room 201.
