Upcoming Adult Ed Classes

Bible Basics: The Old Testament for Beginners – Old Testament study can seem like a scary entry into a complex maze of strange names and odd, unfamiliar places. Let’s break down the Old Testament into more easily understood parts, learning to get comfortable with its books, revisiting some favorite stories of apples and axes, giants and generations – and seeing how Holy Spirit connects these many parts into a beautiful whole.
Rev. Craig Kephart, Executive Presbyter of Washington Presbytery, and his wife Kathy will be leading this class on Thursday evenings, April 19, 26, and May 3, 10, 17.

We are planning a class designed for mothers of young children.  Watch for upcoming details.

Also in the works is a class where the “Jesus Diet” will be the topic.  Details are TBD.
