Adult Christian Formation Opportunities

IMG_0374The life of faith is an all-encompassing life. Our call is to love God with our whole beings.  This means we don’t love God with just our heart or just our strength. We love God with ALL of ourselves… including our minds. Westminster Presbyterian Church strives to offer our congregation the opportunity to study, learn and share in a collaborative, nurturing environment through an array of Christian Formation opportunities.  One-hour classes are available @ 9:50 a.m. on Sundays, Fall through Spring.  Special Sunday evening seminars and other classes are also offered periodically.  Read about upcoming opportunities below!


Adult Christian Formation opportunities are available to all!
 All classes commence at 9:50 a.m. on Sundays.


 

Fellowship Hall Class
Coming up Feb 17: Courage in the Face of Persecution:  Fueling the Faith of Early Christianity (Part 1)—WPC members, Mike Cook and Deric McCurry will discuss the phenomenal growth of Christianity during the Patristic era covering specific important historical developments that marked the period from the birth of Christianity to the Edict of Milan in 313 A.D.   From its foundation, to persecutions, martyrdom, monasticism, all the way the rise of Constantine, the events of this era gave rise to early movement of Christianity.

 


Reconnections – Room Ten
Coming up on Feb 17: 
Our own Judy Skaggs is facilitating a class and introduction to the fascinating topic of Enneagram.  There are 9 numbers on the enneagram symbol, each representing a personality:  Reformer, Helper, Achiever, Individualist, Investigator, Loyalist, Enthusiast, Challenger, and Peacemaker.  What does it all mean? Simple assessments to determine personality characteristics were sent out earlier in the week.  Be sure to send those back in to Judy.  If you would like a more thorough test, go to www.enneagraminstitute.com.

 


Bible Study – Room Nine
The bible study class is an informal gathering where we share personal experiences that help us understand the scripture and our life in Christ.  Each week we read the texts that are used that day in the worship service and talk about how God is speaking to us through the scriptures.  Everyone’s contribution is appreciated, though there is also freedom to sit and listen to others.  All are welcome!  Feb. 17:  We will examine the lectionary text from the worship service.
