Adult Education

 

9:30 AM Sundays

2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month

Classes meet on the 1st floor of the Parish House, and conclude with a fellowship hour.  On the 5th Sunday of the month, we enjoy a brunch provided by the church.  All are welcome to join us.

Fall 2017 Adult Education Schedule:  November 12, 19, 16; December 10, 17. 

 Our Facilitator is  Josh Zlatkus, a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), who is trained to help teens, adults, and couples resolve their resistances toward growth and happiness. Josh graduated from La Salle University with a master’s in professional clinical counseling, and receives ongoing training at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. Wanting to connect or engage with divinity is what brings a congregation together. But what does divinity mean to you?  How can we engage with it? What does a life full of divinity look like? How do we understand people whose sense of divinity is much different than ours?  These questions and more will be at the center of each  week’s discussion. Josh will facilitate the conversation by offering a structured way to speak openly about your thoughts and feelings on the issues of self, others, and divinity. The goal of these group discussions is to help you deepen your spiritual understanding and strengthen your connection to fellow parishioners.

INQUIRER’S CLASSES (beginning in 2018)

These classes are designed for those who are considering Christianity for the first time, for those who are new or are returning to the Episcopal Church after a long absence, and for members who simply want to know more about our church. Inquirer’s Classes provide a safe place where questions are encouraged, the Christian faith is explored, and the traditions of the Episcopal Church are examined.

HOME GROUP BIBLE STUDIES

Bible studies take place throughout the year in Home Group settings as well as weeknight meetings at the church. Past bible studies have explored the Acts of the Apostles, the Creation stories, and the Book of Psalms. Bible studies at CHT look at a book’s historical roots, the community for which it was written, and how it affects our lives today. For more information please call the office at 215-567-1267.

BOOK GROUPS

Join us for cooking and conversation, centered around the book Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by Shauna Niequist. 

Each week we will gather, follow a recipe, cook, and talk about our lives, and our faith, and why eating and being together is so fundamental to our lives and our faith.  This book is a celebration of food shared, and why joy found in a life around the dinner table and the communion table. It’s about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them. It’s about hunger, both physical and otherwise, and the connections between the two.

The book is split into 4 parts, each week we will discuss one part and cook one recipe from that section. 

Schedule: Nov 15 – Introduction: make & cook blueberry crisp

    Nov 22 – Part 1: make & cook breakfast quinoa
