Sunday & Wednesday Classes

“Advent-ure” Sundays | 10am in COC, Peace | Sundays During Advent

Come Join Us for an inter-generational “Advent-ure” when all ages come together to celebrate and learn more about the Advent season. We’ll read scripture, participate in skits, conversations and crafts as we prepare or hearts for the coming of baby Jesus.

This inter-generational time will take place in the COC, Peace Room from 10am to 10:45am on Sunday mornings during our Education Hour. As we journey together through this season of preparation, be sure to stick around for what the “Advent-ure” has in store!


Recent Fall Season’s Adult Learning Opportunities

Sundays and Wednesdays, we wrapped 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 details below! Adult Classes meet on Sundays at 10am in the COC, Peace Room.

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.
Doing Our HomeworkHave you done yours? We are talking about taking care of all of the details so that your family doesn’t have to guess, wonder, seek high and low or simply hope they are doing what you want. We are talking about wills, trusts, powers of attorney, medical directives, health surrogates and funerals. Difficult decisions to be sure, but so necessary for your peace of mind. In fact, taking care of these vital matters can be the most loving gift you can give your family in the years to come. Join us on these Wednesday nights where attorneys and planners will speak with us and give us the latest information on these issues. Thanks to the Endowment Board for encouraging us to hold these classes and for seeking out the resources to help us.

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.
