The Adult Ministry Team, provides opportunities to not only know about God but to know Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior.

Return of the Tuesday Night Speaker Series                 The Adult Education Committee is pleased to announce the return of the Tuesday Night Speaker Series.  Beginning on Tuesday, September 29, 2020, we will welcome back Dr. Jerome Creach as he leads a series of lessons on the book of Amos.

This will be a hybrid classroom situation.  Up to 10 people will be able to attend in a socially distanced and masked environment in the Dining Room.  Dr. Creach will attend via a Zoom connection.  The remainder of the class will also be attending via Zoom.

Seats in the Dining Room will be on a first come, first serve basis and must be RSVP’d through the church office by calling 724-222-0190.  Those who would wish to attend through the Zoom platform will receive an invitation from Pastor Scott each week containing the connection information for that week.  If you would like to be included, please email Pastor Scott at pastor.scott.shetter@gmail.com.

Below is the information regarding the topics Dr. Creach will discuss: 

Amos: Champion of Justice and RighteousnessThe main role of the Hebrew prophets was to call Israel back to faithfulness in Yahweh, to remind them of who God is and what God expected of them.  In order to proclaim their message, they often challenged those in power for their corruption and support of injustice and they indicted God’s people for abandoning faith in their God. Amos was the first of these prophets.  He set the tone for all those who would follow him.  In this series, we will explore the circumstances of Amos’ prophecy and the message of this incredible messenger of God and ask in each lesion, what does Amos have to say to us today?

September 29:  Who was Amos and What Was His Message?                   Passages: Amos 1:1-2; 4:4-5; 5:10-13; 7:10-17; 8:4-6.
