We believe that everyone has something to teach to and something to learn from the people around them.
Our Adult education takes that belief and puts it into action. This is not a top down didactic kind of teaching model – with one teacher and a class full of learners. Instead, we gather together around a topic, curriculum, or even conversation starter with curiosity and a lifetime of expertise to share with each other. Through our conversations and interconnections, we begin to learn more about each other, about our faith, about the topic at hand, and about God.
When we are able to gather in the church, we meet as the Connections class – between the two services at 9:30 am – in the parish house. We sit in a circle and discuss as a group the topic at hand.
In the virtual world, we meet as Sunday CH@Ts on Zoom. This is also a participatory conversation, but we have focused our work on anti-racism, scripture and art, and are now working with a devotional for Advent from the Living Compass group. This years devotional is focused on Finding Hope and Living Well.
