Sunday Adult Education

Adult Bible Lectionary Study

Every Sunday morning from 9:00 – 10:00 am, Dr. Will Deming leads an Adult Bible Study on the lectionary Scripture passages for that day’s worship, using the Revised Common Lectionary. This is a wonderful way to dive into the Scriptures before hearing them in the worship service.

UPDATE: During this time at home, Dr. Deming is offering this study class on Zoom. To participate weekly, join on Zoom at the same time of 9:00 – 10:00 am via this link: https://zoom.us/j/92285138816. The Zoom Meeting ID is 922-8513-8816.

Special Adult Education Classes & Guest Speakers

Special Adult Christian Education classes and guest speakers are offered throughout the year on Sundays, occasionally before or after the worship service. The announcements and details for these go out in the Spire monthly newsletter and weekly announcements. 

Mid-Week Adult Education Gatherings

Practical Theology Study & Discussion Group

Every Wednesday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm, the Practical Theology and Discussion Group gathers to study books and articles that explore Christian theology and thought. Feel free to drop in! All are welcome!

Open Circle Women’s Group

Every Thursday morning from 10:00 – 11:30 am during the program year, a weekly women’s study and fellowship group meets to check-in with one another, engage in a Bible or topical study, and concludes with a time of prayer. All women are welcome! Feel free to drop in!
