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.


In this post-pandemic world, we will be offering weekly Adult Ed sessions via Zoom, and in person, every Sunday morning at 11:00. Join us!


Sunday Morning Adult Education began again in September. Please join us.


Apr 3 Learning about Conflict Resolution, with Dustin Moretz Dustin will speak with us about the history of the Northern Irish conflict and ways that Christian communities responded to promote conflict resolution and reconciliation. Dustin Moretz is an MDiv student at Luther Seminary, a Member in Discernment toward Authorized Ministry in the UCC, and the Youth Community Builder at Macalester Plymouth United Church in St Paul. Dustin studied conflict resolution in Northern Ireland before working at The Corrymeela Community, Northern Ireland’s oldest peace organization and an ecumenical Christian community. He lives in Minneapolis with his partner and dog.

 

Apr 10 Intergenerational Palm Parade Showing Solidarity with Ukraine Please join us in the back parking lot as we don donkey ears – shout hosannas, and walk the red carpet of cloaks and branches, remembering Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem! This also could be an opportunity to show our solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, where he would confront the powers of empire is mirrored so much in the bravery of the people of Ukraine, facing down the powers of empire.
   
Apr 17 EASTER SUNDAY there will be no Adult Education session this week.  

Apr 24 Books We Love
Iris McGinnis will once again facilitate our conversation about and sharing of titles of books we are recommending to each other for our upcoming summer reading. Come with a title or two you would like to share. We will gather in the sanctuary - and if you are Zooming in, we will be able to hear your recommendations as well.


Worship Schedule

We are glad to share that we will began worshiping in-person on Sunday, March 6. Please join us if you are able. We will continue to take precautions for the safety of all, including everyone masking, especially for any singing. We look forward to being together again!
