Old and New Testament Classes

September 2019-April 2020

Sunday mornings: New Testament
Wednesday mornings: Old Testament

Pastor Larry Hayward leads these in-depth courses focused on reading the Bible. In the class, you will read the entire Testament, learning the basic content of the book and exploring the text in detail. Together with the class, you’ll reflect on how those texts and the Bible as a whole impact our faith and life. Learn what it means to say the Bible has “authority,” is “inspired,” is the “word of God,” and is the “unique and authoritative witness to Christ.”

Embracing Transformation

Sunday Morning Adult Formation 2018-2019

Last year’s theme for Sunday mornings challenged us to embrace the transformations within ourselves, within the church, and within the world at large. What can we learn from those in the past who have gone through similar transformations in their lives? Through embracing our transformations, we can serve God more fully and learn more about our faith and ourselves.

Recordings of our Embracing Transformation series are available on the WPC adult ed podcast! Click below to listen.
