Adult Education Lent 2020

Sunday Morning Education Hour has some great offerings for adults to grow, stretch, deepen and ground their faith and practice. Adults of every age and stage are welcome – young adults to senior citizens. Some courses are three or four weeks and some last for several months. We try to address these broad themes: Bible Study, Big Questions, Equipping the Saints, Life and Nurture, Mission, Spirituality, and The Twenty-First Century.

New classes for Lent:

Into the Story with Morton Harris

March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29—Room 258

When we read about a place, we construct a mental picture of that place – its look and feel, terrain, sky, hills and water. After a life-time of reading the Bible and constructing images for the places there, what would an actual visit to the Holy Land do to those internal mental pictures? What changes? What amplifies? What turns upside-down? Morton Harris will share his thoughts of “before and after,” following the recent church-visit to Israel and Jordan.

Conversations on Race Movie Viewing and Discussion with Paula Seabright

March 22 & 29—Branch Hall

Trigger: The Ripple Effect of Gun Violence – Trigger was produced by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and looks at gun violence as both a disaster and a public health issues. Trigger looks at how one shooting impacts individuals, families and the community at large. We watch those impacted grapple with why the event happened to them, and then turn to the greater question of what do we do to prevent gun violence.
The film is available on Amazon Prime.
All are welcome.
