Adult Education bridges our faith tradition with real life.
Adult Education for Summer 2020
Adult Education is normally dormant during the summer, but since so many are feeling a desire for engagement during this season of separation, we have prepared several opportunities for the community to continue to grow and connect spiritually.
Big Questions for a Changing Church
The first three Sundays in June, Rev. Dr. Matthew Skinner will be hosting guest scholars for this series. A different theologian each week will visit and via livestream, we will discuss their perspectives on how congregations can be changing creatively, thinking differently, nourishing themselves spiritually, and accompanying their neighbors generously.
Isolation in Perspective: Criminal Justice, Disconnection, and the Church
This series will be available a different day of the week beginning the week of June 28.
June 28 through August 2, Dr. Amanda Weber will present this exciting series in collaboration with McCormick Theological Seminary. As the world experiences a global health pandemic, we are united in an unusual mass experience of isolation. Still, we do not all experience the same level of hardship. By studying the criminal justice system and striving to understand our own complicity in it, what perspectives might we gain on isolation and social disconnection? What might this pandemic experience teach us about the lasting trauma of isolation? And where is the church in all of this? Join us via livestream on Sunday mornings.
To provide additional opportunities to engage and connect in a more intimate way, we are organizing the development of a new set of small groups for a 6-week session this summer. Please watch for more information to come!
Living the Faith in the 21st Century
This Wednesday evening class, led by Dr. Chad Quaintance, explores what it means to live as faithful Christians today. Participants grow through learning and conversation. Feel free to bring your dinner and pick up beverages at the coffee station in Westminster Hall.
Virtues, Values, Ethics, and Character
“Come, let us reason together…” This Sunday class provides weekly opportunities for dialogue and conversation around topics of faith and life. Participants share ideas and experiences as they grow together.
If you are looking for a way to connect more deeply with others at Westminster, consider joining a small group. These groups gather to grow in faith and study to learn and live into God’s Word. To join a group, contact Mahin Hamilton.
