To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Adult Christian Education

Adult Class Offerings for Fall 2014

Sept. 7 and Sept. 14: Anglican Frontier Ministry to Unreached People of Turkey 

We shall learn about travels and experiences in eastern Turkey from one of our parishioners who has recently returned. This presentation will include a week spent working with students at a Protestant Church in one region  as well as ethnographic studies of four new areas. We will explore ways our parish and people can become more involved in this important work.

Sept. 21 to Oct. 12: Exploring the Apocrypha 

Did you ever wonder about those somewhat mysterious books sandwiched between the Old and New Testament sections of our pew Bibles? When and where did they come from? What is the significance of being “non-canonical”? What is their role in the Episcopal liturgy? Beginning on September 21 and continuing for four weeks, the adult class will look at these and other aspects of this fascinating library of ancient texts—a collection that has also had a wider influence on culture and the arts than you may have realized. Led by Bill Ernst

Oct. 19 to Dec. 28: Bible Study on I Corinthians: 

In I Corinthians, Paul says that he only sees “through a glass darkly.”  If this is so, then many a latter-day Christian has affirmed that Paul sees through a glass darkly with greater clarity in I Corinthians than most of us see in bright daylight.  So come and peer through the glass darkly with Paul and the adult class led by Joe Coalter that will be meeting at 11 a.m. each Sunday in the Choir room between October 19 and December 28.  Who knows!  We may learn a little something about faith, hope, and charity plus the ties that bind us one to another,  and the sure and certain hope of the resurrection.

Note: Adult Christian Education follows the Sunday morning worship service and the Parish Hall fellowship gathering. The class begins around 11:00 a.m. Please join us.

Also Note: If you have young children, the nursery is open on Sundays from 9:15 – 12:00 for children up to pre-K.
