Adult Eduction

Christian Education

Growing in our faith is important in our lives as Christians. Currently, being together in large groups to learn, share and grow is not advisable. The Christian Education Committee and church staff are planning education to be held at other times.

Wednesday Evening Classes during Lent

Classes begin on Wednesday evenings, February 24, and continue through March 24 from 7:00-8:00 p.m.   Pastor William Snyder will lead the classes.  Topic is The Forgotten Luther, edited by Carter Lindberg and Paul Wee.  We often forget how frequently Luther called for reform in the social and economic dimensions of life, which he saw as a natural outgrowth of theology and love of neighbor.  The book, The Forgotten Luther, will be the jumping off point for our discussion.  Reading the book is optional.  We will consider such topics as:  the common chest; the danger of greed; subversion when called forth; creating new vision in the world.  We will take the opportunity to examine together many social issues that challenge us in these times.   Contact Patty Snyder or the church office (717) 843-8155 to register and receive the Zoom link.

Bible Study

Wednesday Bible Study @ 10:30 AM
In person Wednesday Bible study resumes February 17 at 10:30 AM.  We will meet in Christ Hall and continue to physically distant, wear masks, and keep the time limited.  The microphone will be used so as to amplify the presenter throughout the room.  We will spend the majority of our time studying the Epistle lesson appointed for the up-coming Sunday.  Those readings are:  First Peter 3:18-22, Romans 4:13-25, First Corinthians 1:18-25, Ephesians 2:1-10, and Hebrews 5:5-10.  We will have time to look more closely at these five letters and see how they are applicable for our life together.  Please make time to mark this holy season.

Please enter the building through the Springettsbury Avenue lobby.

***Reminder that the first Wednesday of each month is street sweeping so please park in one of the lots and not on Springettsbury Avenue.
