Adult Education

We offer a Movie Matinee on the second or third Sunday of the month following our worship service and a brown bag lunch. These are Hollywood films that have a spiritual message or raise values or issues that we as Christians need to address. We do not show films for entertainment purposes (although it is a very entertaining way to talk about these issues!) but rather as part of the Christian Education curriculum of our church. Following the film, we stay to discuss the message or values in relation to our faith so that we may grow spiritually. Many of our Sunday School children attend these films as well, and so, they are always suitable for a young age group. Films we have shown in the past include Wall-E, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Blind Side, To Kill a Mockingbird, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Whale Rider, Lilies of the Field, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, Plymouth Adventure, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

We also have a Bible Study on the second and fourth Thursday evenings of the month at 7:00pm. We are currently discussing St. Augustine’s Confessions, a Christian classic beloved by believers throughout the centuries.

During the church season of Lent, we offer a six-week Lenten Series on each Sunday following the worship service and a communal lunch. We have in the past consistently drawn between 30 – 35 participants, including many children. In the past, for our Lenten Series, we have shown episodes of Little House on the Prairie, Everybody Loves Raymond, The Vicar of Dibley, The Twilight Zone, and we will begin in February 2016 The Big Bang Theory.
