As people of faith we are always growing in our knowledge and sense of what it means to follow in Jesus steps and live faithfully with God. Opportunities for growth and education are important for children, youth, and adults. Sunday School meets from the weekend after Labor Day through the Sunday before Memorial Day.
Currently we are offering opportunities for children and youth at times other than on Sunday mornings. Check with the church office for the latest information or to be added to the mailing list.
The Children and Youth Spiritual Formation is proud to be offering a children’s class following the children’s story during the regular worship service, children ages 5-10 will be dismissed to the library for games, crafts and Bible stories. They will also learn about the books of the Bible and how to find a scripture passage. We would love to see you there!
Classes for adults begin at 9:30 a.m. and last one hour (childcare is available for children during this hour). Following class, join us in the Gathering Place for a time of fellowship before worship at 11:00 a.m. Feel free to visit any of the classes!
All are welcome to join a class that speaks to their interests or spirit.
The Upper Room: Library
This group engages devotional pieces from The Upper Room devotional series and takes time together to reflect on scripture, faith, and prayer.
Friendly Bible Study
Friendly Bible Study comes to us from the Quakers, hence the name, Friendly Bible Study. Margaret Johnson was introduced to it through an On Earth Peace session, at the Church of the Brethren annual conference, in 2016. Some of the core ideas are:
-Recognition of personal experience as a central part of our spiritual lives
-Equality of all believers in the study process
-Availability of continuing revelation of God in our spiritual lives
-Affirming the connection of the Biblical witness to our lives, in our present world
Each Friendly Bible Study session is designed to last one hour. Plan to arrive by 9:20 for some “housekeeping,” so the actual session can begin, promptly, at 9:30, and end by 10:30. Ideally, one should commit to being present all four Sundays. Participants need to bring a Bible in the version of choice. There will be times of silence, writing, listening and sharing, within a structured setting. Consider joining us. —Margaret Johnson, Steve Reddy and the Worship and Spiritual Life Commission
