Adult Education Opportunities We believe that adult church school is a place to learn about our faith and how it affects our lives. We also believe that we can learn from each other. A wide variety of topics are covered. The classes provide information to stimulate thinking, discussion and new ideas while getting to know the people in the class.

SUMMER EDUCATION

Love to Stay: In Adam Hamilton's book, "Love to Stay," class members will explore how, with God's help, we can make love last. He uses surveys from singles and couples, interviews with marriage and relationship therapists, the latest research, and wisdom from the Bible to look at what it takes to create and sustain a healthy, meaningful romantic relationship across the course of a lifetime. Classes will run from June 24 - July 29, from 6:30-8:00 pm in the parlor. Led by Amy and Adam Hinman and Laure and Dick Mieskowski. Books will be available for $10 in the north lobby starting June 15. You may purchase your copy of an eBook online. Child care provided.

Women at First: Child care now available!
 Join us for a summer lunch series. Using, "The Christ-centered Woman," by Kimberly Dunnam Reisman, we will find balance for every age and stage of life with Christ at the center. Women at First will explore what the Bible teaches about Christ-Centered living using Ephesians 3 as a guide. Starting June 12, we will meet every other week from 12:00 - 1:30 pm through August 21 in Wesley Hall. Lunch may be purchased (a soup/salad) or you may bring your own. Workbooks will be available for $10 in the north lobby beginning June 1.
