ADULT SPIRITUAL FORMATION CLASSES

Celebration Class

Room 314 Central Building • 10:00 am • Sunday Mornings

 

The Celebration Class includes both adult singles and couples. Our study is member-led and discussion-based. We focus on developing, supporting, growing, and living our Christian faith in today’s world with an emphasis on fellowship, stewardship, prayer, and missions. We send out a weekly e-newsletter containing class news, lesson notes, mission opportunities, prayer requests, and celebrations to help us stay connected through the week. All are welcomed. Come join us!

Chapel Class

Chapel • 10:00 am • Sunday Mornings

 

For anyone thinking of joining us on Sunday -- please come, whether in-person or virtually!  We have a wonderful group regularly meeting in the Chapel or participating via Zoom, and we're fully set up for a seamless remote connection by video or phone.  This year our classes are being taught by a variety of class members, associate ministers, and others guaranteed to help all of us better understand and deepen our faith.  This includes a year-long topic being presented by Ken Carlson of examining the four gospels, Acts, the letters of Paul, James, and others, and most of the other books of the New Testament to increase our understanding of these Biblical foundations and hopefully encourage everyone to open and read their Bibles!

Mission Possible

Room 107 East Building • 10:00 am • Sunday Mornings

 

Mission Possible is a class of primarily couples, age 50+, but all are welcome. We typically follow a book-based study of current authors that have included Michael Brown, Adam Hamilton, Barbara Brown Taylor, Rachel Held Evans, and others. We strive to be mission oriented as well as socially active within the class. We have the option of in-person or hybrid Zoom attendance to maximize the ability to stay connected.

Parents of Teens

Room 307 East Building • 10:00 am • Sunday Mornings

 

If you are a parent of a teenager you need all the help you can get and a community to share the journey.  Join us as we look at resources and explore ideas on how our faith and parenting coincide. Bring your cup of coffee as we come together as a community of parents to support one another and share ideas and experiences in a safe environment. There is always room for more!  We hope to see you on Sunday.

Sycamore Tree

We are a class of couples and singles in the 65+ range who study books that reflect issues concerning religion, faith, and social/moral concerns. We use books of varying viewpoints by a wide range of authors. Visitors are always welcome, and we encourage the respectful expression of all views and opinions. Class members read weekly material beforehand (usually a chapter at a time) and share in the Sunday discussion. We carry out various service projects as the need arises throughout the year and we have occasional social gatherings. Come join us!
