ADULT EDUCATION SCHEDULE
The Adult Education team is planning another exciting year of opportunities to share our stories, learn new insights, and grow together.
SEPTEMBER – BIBLICAL WILD
This is an award-winning bible study leading us through the bible. This year, we are studying I Timothy through Revelation. Each week, we watch a short, five-minute video followed by discussion questions and reflections on the weekly readings. Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:05 a.m. for great conversations!
OCTOBER – HOLY WOMEN, HOLY MEN
Our FIRST ONLINE study will happen this fall with Holy Women, Holy Men. Priest Nikki will lead us on a journey of greater awareness of the communion of saints. Join this lively discussion on how these servants provide us with encouragement and examples of faithfulness.
ALSO IN OCTOBER – THE WAY OF LOVE
Also in October, we will accept the invitation from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry to Practice the Way of Love. The Way of Love is a “rule of life” focused on practices for Jesus-Centered Life. The practices we will discuss include:
TURN – Pause, listen and choose to follow Jesus
LEARN – Reflect on Scripture each day, especially on Jesus’ life and teachings
PRAY – Dwell intentionally with God daily
WORSHIP – Gather in community weekly to thank, praise, and dwell with God
BLESS – Share faith and unselfishly give and serve
GO – Cross boundaries, listen deeply and live like Jesus
REST – Receive the gift of God’s grace, peace, and restoration
DECEMBER – WOMEN OF THE BIBLE
During the advent season, we will continue our study of women in the Bible. Using Bible Women: All Their Words and Why They Matter, written by Lindsay Hardin Freeman, we will continue our discussion on the roughly 14,000 words spoken by 49 named women in the Bible. What did they have to say, and why is it important to us today?
JANUARY/FEBRUARY – PRAYER
Our post-epiphany study will center on prayer. This will include a look at the Lord’s Prayer as well as a discussion on types of prayer.
FEBRUARY/MARCH – REFLECTIONS ON THE WATER OF LIFE
During the Lenten season, we will spend five weeks on this study from the Trinity Institute on water justice. As the Trinity Institute states, “Water is a gift. Water is life. As water crises increase, access to safe and clean drinking water decreases…and the key to survival, for people of faith everywhere, is in finding a sustainable, just, and spiritual foundation of our life together”.
