Adult Sunday School – All Classes Start 9:15 am
Adult I (Coed) – Encouragers Class – New Building, Room 104
Leaders for this class are Bennett Chotard, George and Mary Elizabeth Smith. The goal of this class is for the members to be family to each other while challenging each other’s minds and hearts. The Encouragers Class is leader-led with open discussion. Henri Nouwen’s Here and Now – Living in the Spirit is an example of the type of book this class studies. The theology of this Sunday School class is expressed beautifully in the following quote by Barbara Brown Taylor: ‘It is a world full of chips and dents and scars. Even where we have glued it back together you can still see the cracks, but in its own way it is lovely, a mosaic of many colors, a mended work of art, a testament to the God who is willing to work with broken pieces and who calls us to do the same!’
Adult II (Coed) – Fellow Strugglers – New Building, Room 105
This class is taught by Mike Peters. The Adult II class follows a plan of Bible study that covers content, history, and contemporary application of Scripture. Occasional book studies are also offered. For example, in the winter of 2008 this class studied Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Cost of Discipleship.
