Adult Sunday School
One of the important times for encouraging gospel transformation in our church family is during the Sunday School hour before our corporate worship on Sundays. Our adult classes run through several different courses each year, taught by our pastor Andrew as well as other members of the church.
The classes meet Sundays from 9:00 am to 10:00 am with the exception of the summer months. Come join us - you won't regret it!
Sunday School resumes for all ages on Sunday, 16th September at 9 a.m. We’ve some exciting changes this fall – each week all age groups (children through adult) will begin together in the Gilmor Room for the opening of the Sunday School hour, after which we’ll divide up to go to our separate classes. In these classes we’ll all be studying the same passage as together we work through the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts this year. We hope that in addition to learning and growing much together in our classes, the common material can encourage conversations later in the day and week between parents and children about what we were all reading in our respective classes. Andrew will be leading the adult class in Luke and Acts.
Separate from the Luke/Acts class for all ages, there is an alternative adult class option this fall (which will also be opening in the Gilmor Room). Darcie Ward will be teaching a class on ‘The Songs of Ascent: Psalms 120-134’. With Eugene Peterson’s A Long Obedience in the Same Direction as their guide, Darcie’s class will look at this group of songs believed to be sung as the faithful traveled the road to Jerusalem to celebrate the high holy days. As Peterson points out Christians are both disciples and pilgrims. “Disciple says we are people who spend our lives apprenticed to our master, Jesus Christ. Pilgrim tells us we are a people who spend our lives going someplace, going to God.” Together, participants in the class will explore this journey of our ‘long obedience’. If you wish for Darcie to order the book for you, please let her know.
