Adult Education Committee

Education is the most powerful weapon for changing the world.Our church’s vision statement says  that “We are called by God to be a Christian Church, seeking to live Jesus’ vision of community and mission.”  In keeping with that vision, the purpose of the Adult Education Committee is to plan, implement, and support adult learning opportunities of all kinds that enlighten, empower, and ultimately help transform our lives as individual Christians and collectively as a church of Jesus Christ.

These opportunities abound within the life of our church, beginning with Sunday morning classes, forums, and sharing groups, and extend throughout the week in the form of Bible study groups, contemplative prayer cells, the cultivation of spiritual disciplines, and numerous hands-on service projects designed to relate our personal faith to the demands of sacrificial giving and living.

Members wishing to become involved in this ministry are encouraged to seek out and participate in any of the many offerings available and to make their interests known to the adult education committee or contact the church office.
