“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
The 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 continuing adult education classes. One-hour educational opportunities are available @ 9:50 a.m., Fall through Spring. Special Sunday evening seminars and other classes are also offered periodically.
All Sunday morning classes start @ 9:50 a.m. beginning August 27
This class, which meets in the Fellowship Hall, offers a variety of topics from Bible study and theological questions to current issues and conversation with our mission partners.
Coming up on August 27 & September 3:
Who Do You Say That I Am?
w/ Rev. Dr. Margaret Aymer, Professor of New Testament Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary
As a supplement to our preaching schedule, Rev. Aymer will provide insight to the lectionary readings from the gospel of Matthew these first two Sundays of our program year. She will explore the provocative interaction Jesus has with his disciples as he challenges their understanding of who he is and what it means to follow him.

Come be fed and fed by one another! This multigenerational class encourages conversation and reflection on topics that explore the deeply important work of living faith together in all our families.
Beginning August 27:
More Than Words: 10 Values for the Modern Family
As a jumping off place for lively and fruitful conversation, we will begin the fall semester using a book written by Erin Wathen, Senior Pastor at Saint Andrew Christian Church in Kansas City, Missouri. Your pastors, Bill, Judy and Lana will play host and facilitator as our class members come and go on their busy Sunday mornings. Grab your coffee from Morning Manna and join us for a quick chapter review followed by thoughtful discussion about the ways the values of compassion, forgiveness, abundance, equality, and more can be lived out more authentically in the lives of our families and communities. You can purchase the book ahead of time and read along or come for a quick overview each week of the reading and join in our conversation. (Books are in the church office).
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. There is great freedom in our group. Nothing is “out of bounds” and none of us are trained Bible scholars. Everyone’s contribution is appreciated, though there is also freedom to sit and just listen to others and not say anything. We welcome all who are interested in our experience together.
Beginning August 27:
We will begin reading the book of Colossians.
