Adult Christian Education Offerings
Our goal is to provide opportunities for personal spiritual growth that meet the needs of our members and offer a variety of choices. We also hope to create some special learning communities and support groups while still providing a few opportunities to create some parish-wide fellowship and unity. While learning in small group communities is important, connecting those small group communities to their source of life (the larger parish) is also vital to the health of our congregation. A few times throughout the year all classes do activities and learn together.

We organize by book, and study one chapter each week, reflecting with open-ended questions.
