Christian Education

The mission of our Christian Education program is to support spiritual growth by providing relevant educational experiences that open our hearts and minds to the joy of life in Christ. Education programs are offered during the regular season on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in a hybrid format. Classes are offered in-person and on Zoom for adults, children and youth. Links to Zoom classes are sent in weekly e-mail announcements.

Adult Education

The goals of adult education are to foster spiritual growth and increase fellowship, in small group settings, where a variety of opportunities are provided to explore scripture, history, theological diversity and contemporary issues while respecting and nurturing faith and reaching out to the community to gain connectedness. Previous classes have included Christian Reflections on Muslim Faith and Practice, the Heart That Grew Three Sizes Advent Study, What to Do When Creation Groans, and Women in the Bible

The Church School year begins on September 17, 2023. We hope you will wake up early, bring your coffee, and join us!

Adult Sunday School

The Teacher said, “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9 NRSV).”  Let’s see about that! Bruce Miller will be with us for our Spring Adult CE session beginning April 7, 2024, 9:35 AM in the Beck Room presenting us with if not a “new” …then certainly a fresh perspective on the Book of Ecclesiastes. Join us in person or on Zoom!

Sunday Morning Parents Group 

On Sunday mornings, we invite parents for a time to take a breath and join us in a relaxed fellowship and study. We meet as a parents group at the same time as our children’s Sunday school in the church parlor. We invite you to grab a cup of coffee and some food from the Garden Room, and then come across the hall to the parlor (between the childcare room and the sanctuary), for a time of study, prayer, and deeper connection. This year we have gone through studies of Faithful Families by Traci Smith and Let Your Life Speak by Parker Palmer. For questions, please reach out to Pastor Alex at

Children and Youth

Children and Youth Christian Education
Our Christian Education classes are designed to help children and youth discover their faith, develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and demonstrate God’s love to the world. Children and youth Sunday School classes for all ages are held in the education wing. See the Children’s Ministry page for more opportunities.
Youth Fellowship
Middle and High School youth can participate in a youth program that includes worship, social activities, and service projects. Youth also attend seasonal retreats (Montreat and Massanetta Springs) and camp (Camp Hanover). See the Youth Ministry page for more opportunities.

As numbers and age warrant, Bon Air offers young people an opportunity to become full members of the church family by completing a nineteen week confirmation class which teaches them about the responsibilities and meaning of church membership.
