Adult Ed Schedule: 2022 - 2023

Adults meet in the fellowship hall during the Sunday school hour (9:15-10:15am).

Each week someone from the congregation (and the occasional guest speaker) presents on a chosen topic, and there is always time for a good discussion. The topic may come from the presenter's area of expertise or special interest, or it may be a discussion based on a book by a well-known and widely read author. (Reading the book is not required, and the presenter won't assume that you've done so.) Not every topic will come straight from the Bible, but they always come from the intersection of Christian faith and the life we're living.

We're pretty casual but always respectful of each other. You don't have to be an expert to attend, and certainly don't need to have the answers; sincere questions are always welcome.

Advent Series: December 4 & 11

December 4: The first of a two-week series for advent led by Cris Mihut.

In this session, we will explore and discuss together several themes in the infancy narratives in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 1:1 - 2:52). We will consider some of Luke’s distinctives in the presentation of Jesus, Mary, the Holy Spirit and other characters in the story.
December 11: The second of a two-week series for advent led by Cris Mihut.

In this session, we will explore and discuss together several themes in the infancy narratives in the Gospel of Matthew (Matthew chapters 1 & 2). We will focus on the theme of God's mercy and Jesus as the initiator of the New Exodus.
