Adult Education

Join us in the Lounge Wednesday nights (starting September 13) at 7:00 or Sunday mornings (starting September 17) at 9:30 or 11:00 for our weekly Adult Education classes. Here we will cover topics throughout the year and review these via videos and books. See below for our current series of study:
Wednesday night and some Sundays will be sharing the video series Faith and Reason that looks at some difficult questions of faith with the help of some notable contemporary theologians.  On Sunday mornings we intersperse Faith and Reason with a digitally delivered just in time curriculum called Faithlinks that blends the Christian faith and contemporary news events.  After a few weeks we will assess which curriculum we wish to continue in which hours on Sunday morning.  All of these are self contained in each week so feel free to join us whenever you can – you needn’t fear missing something from last week and being “behind”!
