Adult Bible Study Class
This diverse class uses The Present Word. Through the exploration of biblical text, adult study groups are invited into a deepened relationship with God. The Present Word engages participants in an experiential style of learning—connecting faith and life. The Present Word nurtures individual growth of the participants as children of God rooted in the Christian community, life in the Spirit and Christian hope. Discussion and activities encourage participants to live out their faith in their individual and congregational activities.. The lessons are ordered so that all the books of the Bible will be covered by the lessons in five years. The class has a discussion format and everyone is invited to join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in Room A.
This winter’s study focuses on “Faith in Action,” and will help us see the many dimensions of Christian faith and how they are expressed in our lives, church, and service to others in the world.
The name of this class is derived from the idea that we endeavor to strengthen our faith during our Sunday morning class in order to connect it to the remainder of the week. The class explores a wide range of topics which are biblical-based, incorporating a variety of books, DVDs, and tapes which are selected by the class. The format of this class is facilitated discussion, and members who wish, volunteer to lead the class for one or two consecutive Sundays. This interesting format allows for diverse teaching styles and introspection to the lesson. Class members bring a variety of experience from their own faith journey. Join us in the Parlor on Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
This winter the class is studying a 6-hour video series produced for PBS and Frontline entitled “God in America”. Each week the class will be watching and discussing 30 minute segments from the series about the founding and development of the many different religious traditions that have contributed to the American experience, beginning with the early Spanish conquest of the native Americans and ending with the role of religion in contemporary American society. This series is especially helpful in understanding the role of Presbyterianism in our country’s history and how we got where we are today.
