Our Wednesday night Adult Education program resumes January 17 and runs through March 7. We begin at 6:00 p.m. with dinner, followed by your choice of two classes, concluding promptly at 8:00 p.m. This winter we are offering two 4-week classes and one 8-week class. Child care is available with one week’s notice. Look for sign-ups during coffee fellowship or contact Carla Chieffo.
We are also looking for individuals who would like to serve on our clean-up crew. You will be treated to dinner and do not need to participate in the classes. This is an important part of the success of our church program. If you would like to help, please contact Barbara McClintick.
The Apostles Creed (4 weeks, January 17 – February 7)
This four-week study will take a close look at the Apostles Creed and its statements of faith, what they mean, and what they mean to us! What has perhaps become a rote declaration to many may take on a much deeper significance as we explore together these profound concepts. Moderator Nancy Davis.
Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White (4 weeks, Feb. 14 – March 7)
This video-based study explores the role of faith in public life and seeks to engage Christians in dialogue and self-examination so that we may model a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us. The videos feature pastor/author Adam Hamilton teaching on topics like, “Where Faith and Politics Meet,” “How Should We Live – The Ethics of Jesus,” “Spiritual Maturity and Seeing Gray,” and “What Would Jesus Say to America?” Moderator Sue Beth Johnson.
Life and Ministry of the Messiah (8 weeks, January 17 – March 7)
Filmed on location in Israel, this unique video series brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance. Author and historian Ray Vander Laan will take us back to the time of Jesus to marvel at the magnificence of Herod’s palace, scramble among the ruins of Qumran, and wonder at the wisdom of Jesus’ parables. In the Life & Ministry of the Messiah, you will discover how the events of Jesus’ day impacted his life, ministry, and communication…and then you’ll learn how it affects yours! Each class begins with a video presentation, followed by group discussion. Moderators: Jim Ryland, Sue Starke, Bob Chudy, and Gavin Kerr.
