Winter-Spring Semester Adult Education: Jesus Between Christmas and Easter
Our Creeds and many people’s attendance are focused on Christmas and Easter. Yet, what about the time in between? What does the life and teaching of Jesus reveal most importantly to us. Beginning with the birth of Jesus, our Winter Adult Education Series will focus primarily on those aspects of Jesus’ breaking into the created order and inaugurating His kingdom. Professor Dave Parris, resident biblical scholar, will be our primary instructor for this series.
The women's Bible study meets weekly on Tuesdays at 10:30 am with complimentary onsite child care available. An evening session is also available at 7:30 pm (sorry, child care is currently unavailable at the evening sessions). This term we will be studying "The Story of Anglicanism." You are invited to join with parish women of all ages and stages to mine the rich veins of scripture through the history, practices, theology and art of Anglicanism. This course of study is specifically designed to allow women to attend as available -- it's never too late to join! Contact Karla Probert: 434.8120 or email@example.com.
Explorers Bible Study
The focus of the 2012/2013 Explorers term is the Old Testament book of Job. This book can throw light on many aspects of the human condition to give an understanding of God’s interaction with humankind. Learn what you may have in common with the person, Job. Decide if the book of Job teaches more about the mystery of evil or the mystery of good. See what you can learn about your relationships from Job’s biography. Identify the important elements or concepts of theology found in this book. Explorers Bible Study is for men and women and meets Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM in Yates Hall. It concludes promptly at 8:30 PM. Classes run through late May, 2013. For information, please contact Karl Weiskopf, firstname.lastname@example.org.
