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.
Conflict Resolution, with Dustin Moretz
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.
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.
EASTER SUNDAY – there will be no Adult Education session this week.
||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.
