The adult education programming is designed to provide educational settings that meet the spiritual needs of the members of our diverse congregation; to give the congregation opportunities to deepen and broaden their faith by study of the Bible and the theology of the Presbyterian Church, and to encourage them to apply their understanding to the moral and social issues of contemporary society, as mandated by our denomination.

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.” 1 Corinthians 3:6
Beginning September 17, the Adult Bible Class will be discussing the personalities, struggles and strengths of Biblical characters and how we can learn from their faith journey. In October, we will celebrate the 500-year Anniversary of the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg Castle (1517-2017) as we learn about Luther, Calvin and the men of the Reformation. Throughout the fall Adult Bible Studies series, we will also discover how God uses ordinary people in our family and in our worldwide relationships to plant seeds of hope that nurture and feed us with hope and reconciliation as we grow in our understanding of grace and love in our faith journey.
