Adult Learning

We value conversations about how the biblical narrative intersects with our own faith lives. Classes are facilitated by ministers and lay leaders. Please join us as we nurture and explore our spiritual lives.

Coffee and Theology – Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
Start your Sundays with us early this fall! Bring your own coffee to this virtual study series that focuses on the broad trends in theology in late 19th and early to mid-20th century. Each session will also connect these trends with a discussion of a Scripture passage that exemplifies that theology. Beginners, seekers, new members, experienced Bible students, are ALL welcome!

September 20 – Orthodoxy and Its Defenders: Fundamentalism and Conservative Christianity (Barbara Davis)
September 27 – Liberalism (Barbara Davis)
October 4 – Neo-Orthodoxy (Barbara Davis)

Bible Study – Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m.
Join Barbara Davis and Hannah Faye Allred as we continue this six-week study of three New Testament letters, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians. These letters, sometimes grouped as the “Captivity Epistles” because they may have been written by Paul from prison, are among the shorter letters in the New Testament. They each give us clues to the joys and struggles of the early followers of Jesus as well as how those joys and struggles mirror our own faith journeys today.

Reading Plan for the Series:
9/23 Colossians ch. 1-2
9/30 Colossians ch. 3-4
