Adult Education/Sunday School
Christian formation is a lifelong process in which we grow in our relationship with God, with ourselves and others, and with all of God’s creation. The opportunity to express our faith presents itself at both momentous occasions and in the seeming simplicity of our day-to-day lives.
Christian formation helps us be mindful of and recognize those opportunities to act according to our faith.
Adult Education classes typically meet in two groups:
- Bible Study
- Contemporary Theology
The two occasionally come together for special programs. If you would like to help with our Christian Formation classes, or would simply like to learn more about them, please contact Linda Arnold or Martha Porter.
Contemporary Theology & Spiritual Seekers Class
Location: Vestry Room
The Contemporary Theology and Spiritual Seekers classes have combined to focus on the book Healing the Heart of Democracy by Parker Palmer. Subtitled “The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit”, the book tries to understand the political rancor and incivility of our civil life and attempts to chart a course toward compassion and empathy in our discourse with one another. “Politics in the hands of those whose hearts have been broken open, not apart, helps us hold our differences creatively and use our power courageously for the sake of a more equitable, just and compassionate world.”
All are welcome to attend this series as we attempt to find ways to understand one another and work toward healing our society. The class meets in the Vestry Room. Bonus: Martha Porter makes scones.
