Adult Christian Education

Adult Christian Education opportunities vary throughout the year. Please check the website calendar for days and times of these offerings.  

Most every Sunday morning Father Eric or other clergy will conduct an Adult Christian Education Class in the Main Sanctuary from 9:05 -9:45 AM.

We have chosen the time between the services so that people who attend either will not have to make a special trip back to church.  Each Sunday's presentation will build on things discussed in prior weeks, so it is important to make an effort to be present Sunday by Sunday.

Use the links below to watch the video of the presentations.

End of Life Series

Regardless of your age or health, spending some time to document how you would like to be cared for at the end of your life can be a gift to the rest of your family.  It can provide them an opportunity to focus on their grief without having to guess about your wishes.
