Adults on Sunday
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!).
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.
Make spiritual growth one of your goals and join one of St. Andrew’s adult classes. There’s a chair waiting for you!
The Homebuilders Class, comprising parents of young children, is examining the fourth gospel with the study Invitation to John. Jesus’ invitation to us is “Come and see, follow me.” This study will investigate that invitation and its meaning for us today. Led by Sara Collins, Homebuilders meets in Room 101 on the first floor of the education building.
The Jack Holladay Class is exploring author Barbara Cawthorne Crafton’s contention that forgiveness is not a job or a task, but rather a spiritual gift given freely by a God who simply wants to connect with us. Over the course of the DVD-based study, Embracing Forgiveness, Crafton shows how forgiveness can remove the tumor of anger from our hearts to become a means of grace that gives us back our humanity. The Jack Holladay Class is led by Curtis Corl and meets in Room 206 on the second floor of the Education Building.
The Faith Journey Class is studying the letter of James. James encourages us to use the wisdom that God has given us to be “doers” and not just “hearers” of the Word. Explore what this short book has to say about walking the walk of faith. Led by Harry Cross, Faith Journey meets in Room 205 on the second floor of the education building.
The Challenge of Faith Class is looking at what it means to be truly joyful in the company of Nobel Laureates Bishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World tells the story of five days in 2015 that these two spiritual giants spent together exploring the obstacles to and the benefits of facing life with intentional joy. Led by Steve Suhring, the Challenge of Faith Class meets in Room 204 on the second floor of the education building.
