Adult Learning Opportunities

Sundays and Wednesdays, we wrap up our journey through the turbulent times of the Reformation era. We will then launch into new opportunities for learning at both times. Check out the new offerings below! Adult Classes meet on Sundays at 10am in the COC, Peace Room.

Reformation Roots | We will continue our study with a look at the Women of the Reformation. Then on the last two weeks we will assess the impact of Luther in this volatile period.
Vanishing Grace | “Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?” Philip Yancey has been asking this all his life as a journalist. His perennial question is more relevant now than ever: research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically—and opinions of Evangelicals have taken even deeper dives. Yet while opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect? Why are so many asking, “What’s so good about the Good News?” In Vanishing Grace, Yancey shows the desperate need our world has for grace, and how Christians can truly make the gospel good news again.  Join us for this thought-provoking series.

The Power of Addiction | Wednesdays, October 11-25
A three-week class on addiction

A local licensed mental health counselor, Jennifer Botelho, will facilitate the classes. What would you like to know about addiction? Take a moment and jot down some thoughts/questions on the attendance card insert. You may also speak with Jane our parish nurse.

As always, invite a friend or family member who might benefit from such a series on addiction. All are also welcome at the Wednesday suppers preceding the educational opportunities.


Praying with the Reformers

For many weeks, we have been learning more about the Church’s reformation. That series of historic events 500 years involved more than just Martin Luther. We have seen where individuals from many countries played key roles during these turbulent decades.

Leading up to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we have been pondering what happened in various ways over the past year.

What better way to learn more of other participants in that Church change than to pray with them. In the coming weeks, we will be offering on Sundays a small paperback book of prayers written by John Calvin, Thomas Cranmer, Martin Luther, John Wycliffe and many more. You can use it in your personal devotion time, share it with a friend, as you wish. Each prayer includes a scripture reference. There are also brief descriptions of each reformer.

We will have these books near the sanctuary. The cost is $7.
