Sunday Adult Education

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 diane@spcah.org.

Do Something – A Series on Injustice for Adults

The two part adult series, Do Something Justice Series was a thought provoking series that Kari Sealund and the Faith in Action Team created to complement the Middle School and High School justice series. In the youth series they learned to see injustice, to know they are not alone when working for injustice, that God works with them and He calls us to Do Something about injustice. This has been a wonderful opportunity for us to learn from each other!

During the adult series we shared a video from the CEO of Orange (one of the most respected leaders in Youth Ministry) called “Why We are Talking about This”. In this video Reggie Joiner discusses the difficult topic of taking on injustice and defines it as the most important topic the church needs to address if we are to attract the younger generations into our ministry. He also discusses the Biblical basis of the call for justice in the church. The adults listened to video clips on topics like,  Is Racism too political of a topic for the church? Is racism real? When we talk about social justice issues does it distract from the gospel? Does talking about racism and other injustices divide the church? and Why is it important for leaders in the church to talk about racism and other injustices and what are the risks if they don’t? These were challenging questions! We ended the short series by listening to Natalie Von Oesen speak about her passion for environmental justice and how she is going to a plant-based meal plan to help the environment. We learned that the youth are passionate about justice issues such as homelessness, racial, educational and environmental injustice. They want to do something! How can we as a congregation support them in realizing some changes in these injustices? In the months ahead our youth will be letting the Faith in Action Team and the congregation know of ways we can work toward some of these injustices! Together we can make a difference and show our children we care about what they see as unjust.
