adult Enrichment Classes

LEARN ~ GROW ~ GO FORTH


Throughout the year we have a series of 3-8 week classes for adults.  They are available on Sunday mornings after our service at 11:30am in the Opal Room.  Scroll down for a list of current and upcoming classes.  For any questions or suggestions on new classes, please feel free to email our Director of Discipleship, Jeff Manildi.  

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

Starting Sunday, September 1st @ 11:30am in the Opal Room, Rev. Mike will lead a 4-week Adult Enrichment Class of "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power." Those interested in participating are encouraged to watch the movie if at all possible. In the class, we'll also view some cuts from the original "An Inconvenient Truth," make use of study materials, and seek to gain updates on the environmental materials in both movies. All are invited (even if you couldn't catch the movie).

The Practice of Prayer

Starting on October 1st at 11:30am Pastor G will be teaching The Practice of Prayer.  In this 3-week Adult Enrichment Class Pastor G will be talking about ways to pray, drawn from the Christian tradition and informed from other world traditions.

The Shema: Deuteronomy 6:4-9, A Jewish Prayer

“… The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might…” - Deut 6:4b-5


Starting Sunday, October 29th @ 11:30am Jeff Manildi will be teaching a 4-week Adult Enrichment Class on the Shema.  The Shema has been the centerpiece liturgical prayer for the Jewish people for centuries. Jesus himself used this prayer in the New Testament. In fact this is probably how most of us are familiar with is. In this class we will take a look at the prayers original context and how the interpretation and use of this text has changes through out the years.

Theologies of the Body: Thinking about the Incarnation

Starting on Sunday, December 3rd @ 11:30am in the Opal Room Jeff Manildi will be teaching a 3-week Advent Adult Enrichment Class on the Incarnation.  The doctrine of the incarnation tells us that God took on human form in Jesus.  This is powerful to think about, but can also be troubling for some.  This is especially true when we consider race, gender and sexuality. In this class we will take a look at the dominant view of the doctrine of the incarnation in addition to perspectives from womanist, feminist and queer theologians.
