Adult Education

Way of Love
At General Convention this year, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry asked that all Episcopalians commit to following the Way of Love.  The Way of Love describes the different parts of living a life following Jesus.  Those parts are:

TURN: Pause, listen & choose to follow Jesus
LEARN: Reflect on Scripture each day
PRAY: Spend time with God each day
WORSHIP: Gather with a community to praise God
BLESS: Share faith, give & serve
GO: Cross boundaries, listen deeply & live like Jesus
REST: Receive the gift of God’s grace

We will be using the Way of Love as the focus of our Small Plates Adult Education and other programs this year.  There is a brochure and some more information on the bulletin board in the library and on the one in the hallway by the kitchen.

Small Plates
Small Plates is our Sunday morning adult education occasional series.  They are a series of short courses that meet between 9:15 and 9:45 in Classroom 2.

The first small plates series of the year begins on Sunday September 23.  This session will be focusing on the “Turn” step of the Way of Love and will be focused on the topic of What Episcopalians Believe.  This session will run for 4 weeks.

Bible Study
Bible Study meets on Wednesday morning from 10 – 11 am in the church library. 

This year we are looking at ways to live our faith in the world around us.  We are starting with an exploration of Richard Niebuhr’s book Christ and Culture.

Bible Study will start for the year on September 12.  All are welcome.  Come in the office door and you will be in the library.

Bible Challenge
The Bible Challenge is designed to have us read large portions of the Bible, including portions we don’t normally read.

This is part of the “Learn” step of the Way of Love.

Completing the whole challenge will result in reading more than ½ of the Bible.

The 2018-19 Challenge has 5 sections.  Torah, Gospels, Minor Prophets, Major Prophets and Wisdom literature.

The Bible Challenge begins the week of September 10.  There are readings for every day.  The brochure with the whole challenge can be found in the back of the church and on the bulletin board in the library and outside the kitchen.
