Adult Christian Formation Opportunities

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 Christian Formation opportunities.  One-hour classes are typically held Fall through Spring and are available to all. Special Sunday evening seminars and other classes are also offered periodically. Read about our class offerings below!


Christian Formation Opportunities

 

Sundays at 9:30 a.m. via Zoom
One of the ways that God speaks to us is through the scriptures. The Bible Study Class reads the sermon texts for that day’s worship service as a venue for hearing God’s message to us. By sharing our reflections, we gain a deeper understanding of our Lord and what we are called to be and do as God’s people. We currently meet each Sunday via Zoom. Look in the online newsletter and worship emails for Zoom information.

 


 

Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in Person

Let’s Reconnect! For the next several weeks, the Reconnections class will be reading and discussing Kate Bowler’s new book No Cure For Being Human: And Other Truths I Need to Hear.  New York Times bestseller author of Everything Happens for a Reason (And Other Lies I’ve Loved) asks a difficult question, “how do you move forward with a life you didn’t choose?” An associate professor of the history of Christianity in North America at Duke Divinity School, Bowler was diagnosed with Stage Four colon cancer at 37 and offers readable wisdom in how to tell the truth about our fragile lives. “Life,” she says, “is beautiful and terrible, full of hope and despair and everything in between – and there’s no cure for being human.”

Her book is available on Amazon or find it at your local book store. Grab a copy, listen to her podcast Everything Happens or just come for conversation on Sunday mornings at 9:45 in Room 10. All are welcome.
