Our Adult Education committee is actively pursuing ways for our congregation to stay connected, and learn, through small groups, new classes, and incorporating technology. Stay tuned for further developments, and if you have an interest in helping in this effort, call the church office 919-847-1913.
Adult Sunday School Opportunities
Sundays at 9:50am – learning together!
All classes welcome new participants!
This class combines fellowship, food, and faith in a relaxed setting, perfect for visitors, new members and those trying Sunday school for the first time. Feel free to bring a light breakfast item to share along with the coffee that’s provided. We will discuss We Make The Road by Walking by Brian McLaren, which will also be the basis for the Sunday sermon. You may purchase a book or use a class copy. No reading required prior to class, as our facilitators share scripture and pose questions that will inspire table talk.
WHERE? Fellowship Hall, section 1B
The Disciple class is a year-long study on learning how to be disciples through bible study. This year, the Disciple 4 class will study several New Testament books, including the Gospels of John, 1st, 2nd and 3rd John, James, Jude and the Book of Revelation. New members are always welcome, but as this is a more in-depth Bible study, some knowledge of the Bible is helpful if you would like to join this class.
WHERE? Library/Conference Room
This is a study and fellowship group for families with children (infant through 5th grade.) The group meets so parents may fellowship, learn together, and share the joys and challenges of raising children to know and love Jesus. This Fall we will use the book The Price of Privilege by Madeline Levine for discussion. We will focus on our role in raising children to be servants of God in a society that doesn’t always value servanthood above the trappings of privilege and affluence.
WHERE? Room 6, downstairs
