Adult Education

COVID-19 NOTICE

Due to the pandemic we are not currently meeting in our buildings.

However, there are rich online adult education offerings:

Informing Our Faith – Voices That Inspire Us and Challenge Us – You probably know Martin Luther King, Jr. as an icon of the Civil Rights movement and C. S. Lewis as the author of the children’s book series, The Chronicles of Narnia, but do you know the stories of their faith? Join with Pastor Gillian as she introduces important voices of faith over the next ten weeks. Victor Frankl, Jan Richardson, Desmond Tutu, and Barbara Brown Taylor are just a few of the people we’ll hear from. Perhaps these short introductions will whet our appetites for more reading and inspire and challenge us in our own faith journeys.

The Informing Our Faith Series will begin the week of 18 January. You can choose to attend either Monday evenings at 7 p.m. or Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. To sign up for a Zoom link, contact the church.

When we no longer have to worry about COVID-19, we will resume our Sunday morning adult programming.

Sunday classes meet from 9:00 – 9:45 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.

If you last entered a Sunday School classroom in 1992 and associate it with Bible worksheets and second graders, then you may want to give it another try (and by the way, not even second graders fill out worksheets here!).

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.
