Adult Education and Nurture
We take seriously the importance of learning and growing in God's Word and in faith. We offer a full range of adult classes on Sunday morning, weekly Bible study groups, and seasonal workshops that enable adults to explore the Bible in depth and apply their faith in life. For all those seeking more maturity and depth in their faith - come grow with us!
Sunday Mornings This January
Time: 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.
Where: Library (First floor, center building, alley side)
Faith Trek is a small group of CCPC adults who are curious about their faith and the world, and want to explore both in the company of a circle of friends. The circle expands easily, and we would be delighted to have you join us. Contact Margaret Chan (301-656-5034) with questions or to secure a copy of the book. Please feel free to drop by any Sunday!
Time: 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.
Where: Geneva Hall (Second floor, Education building, street side)
The Open Forum offers a forum for the discussion of a variety of topics on the intersection of faith and life. Join us in January for these discussions:
January 20 – Be Prepared!
Mary Lasky, CCPC member and Business Continuity Planner for Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Lab, will discuss what we need to do in our homes to be prepared for severe weather emergencies and other events that are grim possibilities in our modern world, chemical and biological accidents or terrorists attacks. We encourage members to attend both of Mary’s presentations because emergency preparedness can save lives.
January 27 – Be Prepared! (Part 2)
In this second presentation, Mary Lasky will discuss how we can be prepared to evacuate in the case of a severe emergency, and what we need to do if power is out for an extended period of time.
The Bible in Context Class
Time: 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Where: Room 350-B (Third floor, Education building)
This year the class will be studying the Gospel of John, a narrative of “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” John includes material not found in the other three gospels and has a different account of the Crucifixion. The biblical text for the week will be closely read and examined in light of the 1stcentury historical setting.
Wednesday Mornings (Bi-Monthly)
The Wednesday Morning Bible Study Group will continue its study of the Gospel of Matthew. The group meets twice a month in Geneva Hall on the second and fourth Wednesday from 10:30 – 12:30 p.m. Contact Grace Hyslop for more details. See you in class!
Wednesday Evenings (Monthly)
The Young Women’s Bible Study is reorganizing and invites all young women of the congregation to join their study and fellowship! Mark your calendars for the third Wednesday of the month at 8:00 p.m. in Room 350-B (third floor, Education Building, street side). Bring your Bibles and join us as we continue to read and discuss the Gospel of John with teacher, Lynn Jostes. It’s never too late to begin, so join us!
