Adult Ministries

Our Adult Sunday School classes are varied and held on Sunday mornings during the school year. The specific times depend on the content of the class but typically are from 9:00 am until worship starts at 10:00 am. Contact the church office to find the current schedule.

FALL ADULT EDUCATION CLASS TO FEATURE JIM WALLIS’ America’s Original Sin, Racism, White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America
For our Fall Study we have chosen the book listed above for several reasons:  First, the book addresses a very contemporary issue in American society that has been neglected for too many years.  Second, in its many relevant quotations it gives its readers a good historical and cultural background for our study as it relates to the struggle of African-Americans to find a place in our society. Third, in recent years our class has not addressed this issue in our studies. Fourth, the author, Jim Wallis of Sojourner’s, writes from his intimate experience in Detroit as a pastor and one who raised his family in the context of a dynamic continually changing urban situation. Finally, Wallis is a student of the Bible that strongly influences his message throughout the entire book.  He is very familiar with Christian theology and its relation to the African-American experience in the United States.

The class will meet in the Church Library on Sunday mornings, 8:30-9:30 am, starting on Sunday, September 11 through Sunday, November 27, 2016. Sign up in the Church office and indicate whether you want Kay to order the book for you. The cost of the book will be around $15.
Winston Hopkins will facilitate a four week class introducing the principles and practices of mindfulness. The class will be from 9:00 – 9:45am on Sunday, September 11 through Sunday, October 2, 2016. The class will outline the benefits, attitudes and meditation practices that will enhance our spiritual lives.
