Adult Eduction

Adult Faith Formation Fall 2019

From September 15 through October 20 there are two course offerings for adults.

The first option is a study of the book October 31, 1517 written by Martin E. Marty. The class explores the events leading up to the Reformation of the 16th century and the aftermath. The class is held on the Main Level in Christ Hall with Jim Kapoun leading the class. Copies of the book are available in the Good Shepherd Room for those who plan to attend and want to begin reading the text.

The second option is for those interested in our faith community. The class explores the events leading up to the formation of St. Paul’s congregation in 1836 and the aftermath. The class is held on the Lower Level Community Room #4 with Pastor Reep leading. This class also serves as a new member class for anyone wishing to unite with our faith community on Reformation Sunday, October 27.
