Next up in our study of world religions this month is Buddhism.
Adult Sunday morning classes
Sunday classes meet from 9:45-10:45 (between the two worship services) in the education building behind St. Andrew’s main building. Childcare for 2 year olds and younger and classes for 3 year olds through senior high are available at the same time.
Faith is something that continues to grow throughout one’s life. It is rooted in the love of God and is nourished through regular worship and study. One of the great gifts of the church is that we can grow together with other followers as we stretch one another’s minds and hearts in community.
Make spiritual growth one of your goals this new school year and join one of St. Andrew’s adult classes. There’s a chair waiting for you!
Summer 2019 SUNDAY COMBINED ADULT CLASS
We live in a world that is increasingly diverse, and yet most of us do not know even the basic tenets of faiths other than our own. During the month of June, St. Andrew will offer one combined adult church school class based on a book and video by United Methodist pastor Adam Hamilton, Christianity and World Religions: Wrestling with Questions People Ask. Each week we will explore a different religion: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. In addition to presenting the main beliefs of each faith, Hamilton shares interviews with a leading figure of each religion on the video portion of the class. Our regular teachers, Curtis Corl, Harry Cross, Sara Collins, and Steve Suhring, will alternate teaching throughout the month. Join us for this interesting class. It will meet in Room 204 on the second floor of the education building each Sunday at 9:45 a.m.

- At Home With Jesus led by Pastor Gillian
Jesus said, “If anyone loves me, they will keep my words and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. ~John 14:23 Being “at home” with someone implies that we are comfortable and at ease in their presence. As we seek to grow in our faith and be “at home" with Jesus, this class will explore the rooms of our homes and where there we can help grow our faith and find God even in the ordinary and seemingly mundane.
