Adult Education

A variety of education classes for adults are held each Sunday during the school year (except the Sunday following Christmas and during the month of August) September through June, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in the Center for Education (CE) Building.

Bible Study Class

CE room 1

It doesn't matter what your level of familiarity with the Bible is to attend this class. We regularly work through one book of the Bible at a time, often using resources from "Kerygma." Recent studies have focused on Acts and 1 Corinthians.

Living Our Faith Class

CE room 4

This class explores a variety of topics that help participants consistently live out what they learn about. Recent discussions have been about the Belhar Confession and its implications for the church today, the "Religion and Ethics" PBS series, Immigration and U.S. policy, mass incarceration, and "Praying in Color."

Book Group

CE room 3

While they have been meeting regularly since the 1970s, this group still makes room at the table for newcomers. Members read and discuss books covering a wide range of topics and interests. Examples include John Calvin, the Jesus Seminar, the Emerging Church and Missional church, and comparative religion books.

Families with Young Children Discussion Group

Library

These parents meet the second Sunday of each month in the UPC Library. We enjoy food, fellowship and discussion around family-related issues, such as communicating with children, spiritual practices for families at home, and service or mission ideas that are appropriate and stimulating for children.
