Adult Education Opportunities

During the program year (Sept. through April), we offer Sunday morning adult education sessions after worship and fellowship time. Most weeks feature guest speakers whose topics range from immigration policy to recycling practices. Topics and speakers are posted here in advance.


During the pandemic, we're offering weekly Adult Ed sessions via zoom, every Sunday morning at 11:15. Join us!


March's Sunday Morning Adult Education:


Mar 7 Back Bay Mission Our gang of adventuresome servants will share photos and stories of their time at the Back Bay Mission in Biloxi, MS. Although we are in a time of pandemic, with careful attention to pandemic precautions they were the largest group to be present at the mission all year and were able to do substantial work on homes and in outreach ministries. Join us to hear more about it.

 

Mar 14 Moving Through and Beyond the Trauma of This Time. Though most of us have been busily coping with day-to-day life and adapting to all the changes needed to keep our personal and societal lives going, this pandemic has brought trauma on a few levels. We will explore what these are, and how we might support one another in understanding and moving beyond them.

 

Mar 21 Books We Love, facilitated by Iris McGinnis Nearly a year of greatly increased time at home has left me with a taller-than-usual stack of books I have read.  If you have been reading, too, please choose a favorite or two to share during our annual Books We Love session on March 21.  A 1-minute “commercial” is allowed for each book, and a list of all the books shared will be available within a few days. This year let’s give priority to books that relate to Lenten themes of reflection and meditation. But there will surely be time for other books you love, as well.  

 

Mar 28 JOIN US FOR A PALM SUNDAY PARADE! A procession of palms, songs, and joyful reunion. Remember the “red carpet” that was created by common folk laying down their cloaks and branches? Remember the palms waving in celebration? Remember the donkey on which Jesus road into town – intentionally countering the military parades on horseback that ruled the cities and region. We’ll remember it all with some fun, inviting all to: “Come walk the red carpet, have your palm read, and make an ass donkey of yourself!” Please see page 1-2 for more information, and plan to join us for some fun!
