Adult Education

Adult Education

We believe an active and inquiring mind is an essential part of faith development, and that it is our God-given nature to ask questions and critically examine the world around us in all its mystery and complexity. We seek to encourage study, discussion and exploration as a part of our regular religious practice.

As a community rich in teachers and seekers, we explore various bodies of knowledge, traditions, and subjects with a focus on the teachings of Jesus and how we can live those teachings.

Participation in Adult Ed. is one of the best ways to connect with your church community. We learn together through lively discussion, getting to know one another better and having fun!
