Adult Studies Classes
Adult Studies this summer will be on Sunday, August 22 at 9:00 a.m. in Calvin Hall. This is for any and all adults.
Here’s what we have to offer during our program year beginning again fall 2021:
Sunday Morning (Ongoing)
The Point Room 227
We are professionals and students, parents and friends, and we are committed to asking hard questions of faith and walking together in love. For everything we do and everything we are, we ask “What’s the POINT?” and we know better than to expect answers. What we do know is that the point — the purpose — of our study and worship and fellowship and faith journeying is that God has called us into Christian community and that we are doing our best to live out that call. We are opening our hearts and opening our minds to be a part of whatever God has called for with this zany and wonderful group of people. Join us as we search, pray, and discover as “The Point.” Join our Facebook group!
The John Knox Fellowship John Knox Room
Drawing on scripture, denominational tenets and a quest to understand God’s call to us in the world, this class combines lecture and discussion in a weekly format for adults of all ages. Led by a team of class members and guest speakers, this group has varied interests and aspirations, a commitment to life-long learning, friendly relations and open communications. Whether it is exploring particular scripture, a Christian perspective on social issues, a General Assembly position paper or the Holy Land as an armchair tourist, participants seek to grow in their faith as they commit to being active disciples in the world. This call to service is demonstrated through missions and special class projects. We have occasional social gatherings, group trips and discussions that build strong personal relationships in this community of faith.
Enrichment Class Room 228
For over 25 years, this class has studied a variety of topics from atonement to world religions. The discussion-based class, led by members of the class, runs year-round, even in the summer months. Everyone is encouraged to share opinions as we affirm each other on this faith journey. The Epiphany party held each January is one of the social events for the class. We actively support missions including building relationships with the Morrow Town Community, traveling to other states to help with disaster assistance, and aiding our neighbors in need here in Alamance county by building a wheelchair ramp for a local cancer patient or adopting a Christmas cheer family. This is a place to grow your faith and build new relationships. Contact Karen Carrouth email@example.com.
The book club has chosen an exciting and diverse list of titles for this year’s reads — titles that explore a number of topics and are sure to generate good discussion. We will also welcome several guest presenters this year which always is a treat. The club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 12:00 noon. If you have not participated in the book club previously but would like to join now, please let Gayle Gunn know by email (gaylegunn@ bellsouth.net) and she will include you in the meeting notifications.
