Christian Education

Our Mission

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, or can be requested by contacting Connor Ferreri,

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. Recent classes have included The Book of Signs, Bible Passages We Ignore, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, and Women in the Bible.

Adult Church School is in full swing. We hope you will wake up early, bring your coffee and join us! We are finishing our study of Dr. Brent Strawn’s (Professor of Old Testament at Duke Divinity School) Lies My Preacher Told Me: An Honest Look at the Old Testament. Join us each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. in the Beck Room and on Zoom. Beginning Sunday, November 27, we begin our Advent Study using the book Prepare the Way for the Lord: The Message of John the Baptist. Details can be found here:

Children and Youth – 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 where masks are required.

Middle and High School Youth are meeting with a neighboring congregation on Sunday evenings from 6-7:30 PM.
