Adult Eduction

 Sunday Morning Adult Lenten Study

March 10- April 7, 2019

Adult Sunday School is held Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 a.m.

March 10-April 7 – Join Pastor William Snyder and Dr. Peter Hartmann as they discuss five stories from the Bible from different perspectives.  Peter will look at the texts from a Psychological Perspective and Bill will respond with a literary and theological point of view, suggesting that we all can experience holy writing from our point of view.  And we will consider how the Church reads Holy Scripture from many angles.  Join us to consider:  The Creating and Fall, The Binding of Isaac, The Birth of Jesus, The Crucifixion, The Conversion of Saint Paul.  The class will meet in Christ Hall at 9:15 a.m.

40 Days of Prayer During the 40 days of Lent: For those seeking a renewed life of prayer, or wanting to establish a pattern of prayer, we will embark on a 40 day prayer journey on Sunday March 10. Several members used this resource last fall. Some enjoyed it so much they want to do it again this Lent. As a re-source for the journey we will be utilizing a little guide by Jack Levison who is a professor at Perkins School of Theology. If you would like to be part of the 40 days of prayer then mark your calendar now for the beginning day, Sunday March 10. During the 40 days we will meet each week (day and time to be deter-mined by the group, but one suggestion was Wednesday prior to Lenten Suppers and mid-week worship) to offer one another support, encouragement and to share insights about our lives and how the Holy Spirit is changing us, working on us through our lives of prayer. In order to provide copies of the prayer guide it would be helpful to know the number of participants prior to the start date. Simply notify the church office or talk to Patty Snyder if you plan to participate (717-843-8155).
