What questions do you wrestle with in your faith? How can you deepen your relationship with God? This is a time when adults of all ages gather together to learn, share, and grow in their faith, learning more about the Bible and how to better live their life following Jesus. A variety of different series compose the year. Series are often based on books, but reading the books is optional. For current info about this Sunday’s class contact .

May Adult Ed Series

Stories of Authentic Women in the Bible

We can learn a lot from other people, especially if they have faced difficult times and / or decisions similar to events in our own lives. During the month of May, we will be looking into the lives of several women found in the Bible. Women who made mistakes, but persevered and found answers and direction from their connection to God. These stories are not fairytales…they talk about life as it like it is, with all the flaws that most people would attempt to hide.

Please join us for video presentation and discussion on Wednesdays at 7pm on zoom, starting May 4th. Hopefully, as we hear these stories, we can learn from their experiences about how to tackle the challenging problems each of us face from time to time.

Study guides are optional, but may be purchased from Amazon or  We will be selecting the four women from the “Twelve More Women of the Bible” Study Guide.

Seven Words Lenten Series

While Jesus was on the cross, He still had things to tell us. His last words were meant to reveal His deepest love for us, His fullest humanity and His surest trust in the Father. As we prepare for Easter during Lent, join us as we study these last words.  Susan Robb, a Senior Associate Minister at Highland Park United Methodist Church, in Dallas, Texas, looks at these “Seven Words” through a lens that finds hope and life in these final sayings. Explore with us from a biblical and historical perspective how these words bring a hopeful and contemplative take on the cross.
