The 10:00 a.m. Sunday morning Adult Education Offerings are intended to enhance our spiritual transformation. The programs are designed to impart knowledge, but also to share tools, practices, and disciplines for better living. Transformation is a matter of training and education. We have introductory classes and training in the practical ways to soften our hearts, listen for the voice of God, build loving relationships, and live a joy-filled and compassionate life.

This class meets in the Parish Hall between Sunday services, and meets between Labor Day and Father’s Day. This class is taught by a variety of people, including The Rev. Joyce Parry-Moore , Val Brustad, D. Bracher, and Tovi Harris.

Classes for children begin at 10:20 am; all are then brought into the Great Church to join their families just before Communion.

“Meet Me in the Middle” Adult Education Lenten Series
Living Well Through Lent: Loving With All Your Heart, Soul, Strength and Mind

Join Sister D Bracher for a series guiding us through our individual Lenten journey.  Lent is a time for introspection and self-reflection, a time to reflect on the core of what it means to live a Christian life. And there is nothing more central to that life than loving — loving with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. For people of faith, love is not an abstract or feel-good concept, but an urgent call to radically incarnate love in how we relate to God, our neighbor and ourselves.
