Adult Education classes normally meet on Sunday mornings, September-May from 9:50 to 10:30 a.m. in the Center for Ministry. We dig deeper into the scripture passage highlighted in worship that day from the Narrative Lectionary.
Other opportunities include…
‘Men’s Breakfast’ Bible Study
‘Men’s Breakfast’ is a Bible study group that regularly meets on the second Saturday of the month. We gather at 8 o’clock for a simple breakfast and a cup (or two!) of coffee and then dive into a study of God’s Word – wrapping up by 9:30 a.m. Using a ‘chapter-a-month’ approach (and N.T. Wright’s “For Everyone” Bible Study Guides), participants find our conversation to be spiritually stimulating and thought-provoking. (For more information about the ‘Men’s Breakfast’ Bible Study – or to obtain a copy of the current Study Guide – speak with Pastor John.)
Women’s Bible Study
The Women’s Bible Study group studies books of the Bible using the Joy of Living curriculum, choosing a book of the Bible that is featured in the Narrative Lectionary whenever possible.
The group meets on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Thursday of the month from September to November and from January to May. We meet from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Center for Ministry. We begin with a song and prayer. Then we share what we learned from the lesson for the day. We do our best to prepare the lesson beforehand, but that is not required. Guests and visitors are always welcome. The contact person is Janine Crowe.
Bible and Lunch Bunch
The Bible and Lunch Bunch studies books of the Bible using the Joy of Living curriculum, choosing a book of the Bible that is featured in the Narrative Lectionary whenever possible.
The group meets for lunch at a local restaurant, once or twice a month, on Sundays, at 12:15 p.m. during the scholastic year and at 12:00 noon during the summer months. The group meets for lunch, Christian fellowship, socializing, prayer and Bible study. We read the scriptures together and discuss what we learned from the lesson. Guests and visitors are always welcome. The contact person is Janine Crowe.
We gather together bi-monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at a local pub for beer and conversation! Discussions around faith, doubt, public policy, and Jesus have often been part of our conversations in recent months. Check the weekly bulletin for our next Pub(lic) Theology event!
PJ’s Book Club
Want to learn more about this world in which we move and live and have our being? PJ’s Book Club is a non-fiction Book Club, focusing on current works of history, morality and cultural geography. It meets bi-monthly at a local watering-hole and Pastor John has declared himself dictatorial selector of reading materials for PJ’s Book Club until further notice!
