Why Adult Education?

Spiritual formation is a lifelong process. At UPC, we offer several ways that you can continue to study the Bible, learn what it means for us today, connect with God and with other people on the journey, and develop your spiritual gifts to do God’s work in this world.

Adult Education Opportunities

September 2018–May 2019

To learn more about the book studies and film discussions being offered this year, click on the photo or title below.

  • Introductory Bible Study

    Mondays, 12–1pm in the Library Lounge

    We choose a specific book of the Bible and then do “deep reading” of that book, verse by verse, over the course of several weeks. We are reading to learn what we missed in Sunday school and what gets lost in preaching — to understand the Bible as the story of God’s people and their relationship to God and the world. We don’t always find answers, but we always learn from the text and from each other! You’re welcome to bring your own lunch. Come and see — it would be good to have you with us.

  • Book Studies

    Mondays, 6:15–7:30pm in the Library Lounge

    Three-session book studies beginning in September, October, January, and March

    Read, then join us for one of our three-week book studies. We’ll discuss topics such as mercy, hospitality, compassion, and ways that the modern church is changing. Copies of the books are available for purchase from the church office. We hope to see you there!

  • Adult Sunday School Class

    Sundays, 9–9:50am in the Office Conference Room

    Lectionary Bible Study: Seasons of the Spirit

    This is a Bible study and discussion class using the curriculum we have for the whole church. We will discuss the scripture passage of the day, following the revised common lectionary. All are welcome.

  • Film Discussions

    Sundays, 12–2:30pm in the Library Lounge

    November 4, 18; March 24, 31; April 7
