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.

Lenten Study
Some people take on a study during Lent.  This year we are reading the book Following the Way of Jesus. 

There will be a discussion of the book on Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 9:45 on March 10, 17, 24, 31 & April 7.  This discussion will be recorded and posted on our podcast site –

There will also be a Facebook live discussion of the book on St. Paul’s Facebook page on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 – 5:45.  These will be on March 12, 19, 26 & April 2 & 9.  Recordings of those discussions will be available on the Facebook page.

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 Small Plates Adult offering in February is looking at different types of prayer. 

Small Plates meets from 9:15 to 9:45 am on Sunday mornings in the Small Plates classroom (the middle classroom on the side of the hallway with the mural).

The February Small Plates session will be February 3, 10 & 17.

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.  Our weekday Bible Study is continuing to look at the area of Social Justice, both from Christian and other perspectives. 

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 began in September.  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.
