Learning

Adult Education

 
We are committed to providing and supporting extended opportunities for Christian growth through Bible study and related learning experiences for the new and established parishioners of all ages. We provide childcare during all Sunday morning and some mid-week classes as indicated below. You’re welcome to attend any class on a drop-in basis!

Sunday Adult Bible Classes

At 9 a.m.
Standing Under the Scriptures

Looking for an intellectual challenge as well as a spiritual one? Check out our Standing Under the Scriptures class. We don’t stand under the Scriptures dogmatically. Instead we ask, “If we stand under them, what follows?” (In fact, exciting things follow! In elucidating what we stand under — we draw on the original Greek and Hebrew texts along with the findings of Biblical scholarship. Come to the Library prepared for mental and spiritual exercise.
