Adult Education

Join us immediately after worship each Sunday at 11 a.m. for adult classes. All classes meet in the Education Building, behind St. Andrew’s main building.

The Jack Holladay Class will begin this fall with a study of Paul by author and pastor, Adam Hamilton. In The Call: The Life, Ministry, and Message of the Apostle Paul, Hamilton takes us to the sites where Paul preached and taught in this video study. Beginning with Paul’s dramatic conversion, we will learn about one of the church’s earliest and most important missionaries. The Jack Holladay Class is led by Curtis Corl and meets in Room 205 on the second floor of the education building.

The Challenge of Faith Class will focus its attention on The Heart of Christianity: Rediscovering a Life of Faith by the late theologian and scholar, Marcus Borg. Borg claims that the key tenets of Christianity – faith, being born again, the kingdom of God, the gospel of love—are as vitally important today as they have always been. He calls on Christians to reexamine these principles in new ways, though, and dive deeper into a life in God. Steve Suhring leads the Challenge of Faith Class, which meets in Room 204 on the second floor of the education building.

The Homebuilders Class, comprised primarily of parents of younger children, studies a variety of topics from parenting to world events to the Bible. The Homebuilders Class meets in Room 101 on the first floor of the education building.

All of the adult classes are open to anyone, no matter where you are on your walk in faith. Please join us!

FAQS

Will I have to do homework?
No, not unless you want to do more reading on your own.

My spouse works on Sundays. May I come by myself?
Absolutely!

I often have to travel and won’t be able to come every week. Is that OK?
Yes! All our lives are busy, and our classes allow you to gain (and contribute!) whenever you can come.

Do I need to know a lot about the Bible and Scripture to participate?
We have students of the Word at all different levels in each of our classes. No need to have your Bible books memorized or show off your ability to quote chapter and verse.

I’m shy. Will I have to speak in class?
We want everyone to feel welcomed and comfortable. While we value discussion and sharing, we love those who just want to listen and absorb.

I don’t really feel as if I have my faith all worked out. Are there others like me?
Yes, there are. Our classes are often as much about the questions as they are about the answers, and you will find groups of people who are honestly wrestling with what it means to be a child of God.
