St. Andrew offers three adult classes on Sundays at 11 a.m., immediately after worship during the school year.
Psalms: Passion, Promise & Praise. Psalms has been called “The Prayer Book of God’s People,” and author Don Griggs delves into how these ancient prayers still speak to us today. The Challenge of Faith Class will discover together that whether we’re lifting prayers of praise to God or lamenting the deepest losses in our lives, we will find that others have gone before us and provide us words that speak to us and through us still. Led by Steve Suhring, the Challenge of Faith Class meets in Room 204 on the second floor of the education building.
Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws. Each of the gospel writers tells the story of Jesus’ life through a slightly different lens. Author and pastor Adam Hamilton explores Luke’s focus on Jesus’ relationships with people on the margins, and how he brought the good news of God’s kingdom to those who most needed to hear it. The Jack Holladay Class, led by Frances Jornov, will learn how this word is still good news for us today. The Jack Holladay Class meets in Room 206 on the second floor of the education building.
The Wired Word. How do the ancient texts of the Bible have anything to say to 21st-century parents? The Homebuilders Class will engage with an event in the news each week through the lens of scripture. Rich discussions using these navigational tools will help parents find hope and direction in their daily lives. Led by Heather and Kevin Gregg and by Karen and Mike Topping, the Homebuilders Class meets in Room 101 on the first floor of the education building.
We extend a warm invitation to join in our adult education program immediately following the Sunday worship service. Whether you’ve been studying scripture for years or are new to the faith, we welcome you to add your voice to our conversations when classes begin on 17 September.
All classes begin at 11:00 a.m. immediately after the morning worship service and meet in the church’s education building, directly behind the main building.
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?
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.
Join us at 10:00 a.m.
