Connection in Study
The wonder of God’s love through Jesus Christ can be at once a felt blessing and a great mystery. Presbyterians have long valued the importance of studying of the Bible, either as seekers of one’s own faith or as learners of deeper meaning.
Sunday morning study opportunities for adults include small discussion classes, currently called:
Issues Class – Studies how issues in daily living in society and religion can be addressed through the tools of faith. Typically follows a chapter by chapter reading and discussion of a selected book of interest.
Sojourners – The Sojourners class studies scripture and Christian literature to consider our personal faith and the role of the church in society. The class addresses current issues such as race, gender identity, poverty and other societal bias.
Bible Discovery Study Class – Tracks through the books of the Bible for a new or refreshed learning of Scripture.
Explorers Class – A new adult class similar to the Issues Class.
Sunday School classes for children include adult-led activities-based class to introduce Biblical stories and values for younger children, and mixed activity classes for older children and youth
