Adult Sunday School Classes
Connections Class meets in the Sanctuary – The Year of the Bible:
This coming year could be an exciting time for our congregation.
We are planning to make a special emphasis in 2015 encouraging every member to read the entire Bible.
The Bible is basic to our faith, it is God’s Word to us. It has sustained countless millions throughout their lives. It has been completely translated into 531 languages, and 2883 languages have at least a portion of the Bible. Over the past 600 years thousands of people have been killed, tortured, and imprisoned for translating and distributing the Bible so the all the world may know God’s Word.
And yet so many people here in the easiest place to read it in the world take it for granted and know little about what’s inside it (though I suspect many think they know).
The Christian Education Committee has adopted a program called “the Year of the Bible.” At its center is a challenge to the congregation to read the entire Bible, whether you have already done so in total or part. The more of us who participate, the more we can encourage and help each other.
We will provide you with a reading plan, along with guidance, encouragement, and help throughout the year. Yes it will require you to make a commitment, but you will discover it has been well worth the effort. Rev. Miller and CLP Ingerson will lead the class. It will also be held on Wednesday night at 6:45pm.

Bible Discovery Class meets in the Choir Room – This Present Word Fall 2014 Series

Participants are invited to reflect on how they might live in faith and love. The Present Word nurtures individual growth of the participants as children of God rooted in the Christian community, life in the Spirit and Christian hope. Discussion and activities encourage participants to live out their faith in their individual and congregational activities. Elder Ivan Allred leads the class.
