Adult Education: Fall Series 2021
Adult Education Online
Foundations of Faith
“… until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.” Eph 4:13
There are terms and concepts which we hear so often from the pulpit and in common worship that we take their meaning for granted. So often, the foundational building blocks of our faith are obscured in our minds by hazy and general definitions. Confirmation classes and Inquirer’s courses are tasked with covering so much ground that deep engagement is difficult.
This fall, Adult Ed is going back to the basics to explore the very foundations of our faith. We’ll be asking a series of questions and challenging default assumptions as we seek to become serious disciples of a serious faith. These questions will seek to move us beyond baseline assumptions into mature engagement.
Join us as we ask:
