Adult Opportunities

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Matthew 18:20

Adult Education:
Why join an adult study? An adult study is a great way to connect with other members of the church for friendship and support. Beyond the social aspect, diving into a study can be an antidote to a common adulthood ailment. In the Message Study Bible, Eugene Peterson offers this insight in his sidebar entitled What to do when delight diminishes.

"Our culture has failed precisely because it is a secular culture. A secular culture is a culture reduced to a thing or a function. Typically, at least at first, people are delighted to find themselves living in such a culture. It's wonderful to have all these things coming our way without having to worry about any purpose for them beyond our own pleasure. And it's wonderful to have all this incredible freedom to do so much without bothering about whether or not what we do has any meaning. But after a few years of this our delight diminishes, and we find ourselves lonely with all the things and bored with all the freedom. 

Our first response is to get more and do more, because that was exactly what made us so happy to begin with. But after a few years of this, we find that we aren't happier. And we're left scratching our heads. Even as Christians we're left scratching our heads.

Why? Well, it isn't because the Christian bible has pages missing; It's because we haven't seen all there is on the pages we already have. 

An adult bible study is an inroad into making fresh discoveries within the pages of your bible- leading to fresh discoveries in your own life!

Adult Bible Study

Five Principles of the Ten Commandments
in the Church Parlor 

Have you ever wondered if the Ten Commandments are even relevant in your daily life?

Honestly, how many of us wake up in the morning and think, "I really need to refrain from murder today.".. or, "Maybe, I should rethink that bank heist I was planning..." And didn't Jesus only talk about two commandments? Do the other commandments hold significance for my life in the year 2022?

Join this interactive study and discussion group on the Five Principles of the Ten Commandments and discover new meaning in your relationships with others and with God as you weigh the full implications of the Ten Commandments. 

Tuesday Tune-Up!

Common Ground by Amber Neese, Author and Comedian
Begins September 27, 10:30am-12:00pm

Learn to live at peace with others even when you disagree...

Whether it is in politics, the professional world, a party or a pew- we face conflict every day. As discussions get more heated and social media is deluged with opinion-spewing, hurt feelings and broken relationships- we need hope and practical tools to navigate the tumultuous waters and live in peace with everyone.

In Common Ground, a four-week Bible study, Amberly Neese combines stories from the bible with personal experience, humor and hope to help women find practical help for facing conflict, navigating broken relationships, handling heated discussions and living at peace despite differences...
