Join us for Sunday School at 10:00 am each Sunday. The current classes being offered for adults:

Parents’ Class:

Does your family seem frazzled by busy schedules? Join us for a study of The Hurried Family: Help for the Hurried Home by Dr. Tim Kimmel, based on his book, Little House on the Freeway. Dr. Kimmel brings help to the hurried home by sharing positive ways to overcome one’s hectic lifestyle. In eight sessions with practical applications, The Hurried Family video study explores the symptoms of a hurried family and provides counsel for restoring calmness and giving the gift of rest to others.

Bible Class :

“Majoring on the Minor Prophets” – This week we will study the prophet Joel. The book of Joel has been called “one of the most disturbing and heart-searching books of the Old Testament.” What is “the great and terrible day of the Lord?” How will God “restore to you the years the locust has eaten?” Come and discover with us what God has to say through Joel!

Faith Growth:

NOOMA is here! The NOOMA video series are short films that explore our world from a perspective of Jesus. NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion. NOOMA features Pastor Rob Bell. Come and experience a new and refreshing spirit!

Wednesdays With Westminster, starting at 5:45 pm with supper

Dr. Phillips is resuming his class on Presbyterian perspectives on faith. In the final 5 sessions, we will look at topics such as the paradox of predestination, forgiveness, biblical justice, and what Presbyterians think about the end of the world. In the first class, however, we will unravel the mystery of evil in about 40 minutes or so! We are using a copy of the magazine, Presbyterians Today and are beginning on page 30, “The Problem of Evil.” If you still have your magazine from the Fall series, bring it. If not, or if you are new to the class (and it’s okay to jump in at any point), copies of the article are available in the narthex and the church office. If you want to download the material yourself, this week’s lesson can be found at http://gamc.pcusa.org/ministries/today/evil/.
