Embracing Transformation

Sunday Morning Adult Formation 2018-2019

This year’s theme for Sunday mornings will challenge 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.

Reading and Learning the Bible

Old Testament Class | September 2018-April 2019

Every year, Pastor Larry Hayward leads an in-depth course focused on reading the Bible, alternating between the Old and New Testaments. 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.”

Join the Adult Education Planning Team!

It takes a vital community to plan our Adult Education classes and programs. The WPC Adult Education Subcommittee explores many options and together we choose topics, formats, and programs that challenge us to question and explore our faith and to grow in the love of Christ. Many hands are required to continue our high quality adult education. I invite you to join us in planning and brainstorming! Call or email Amey Upton to see how you might be able to help.
