Sunday Morning Classes

Please join us for one of our Sunday morning Adult Education classes!


The Wired Word
Sunday mornings from 10-11 a.m.
This weekly study of newsworthy issues is written by an ecumenical team of pastors, professors and theologians. Issues are framed by biblical passages in a manner which is respectful and challenging.

Class meets in room 5 and is facilitated by Tim Stoepker and Karen Abraham.

How to Read the Bible
Sunday mornings from 10-11 a.m.
Have you ever wondered how we got the Bible? Who wrote it? How to read it? Which translation you should use? And finally, how to read it? Then come discuss these questions and more with us!
You are welcome to come to just one or all of these classes, as your schedule allows.

Beginning on March 8, we will go from learning how to read the Bible to actually reading it! "How to Read Genesis" is the natural continuation, and we'll look at questions like did God really create the world in six days, was Eve really formed from Adam's rib, and did people really live to be 900 years old?

Class is led by Dr. Matt Bruce in the recreation room.
