Spring Adult Education Classes
April 23 – June 25, 2017 (No class on May 14 or June 11)
Being Presbyterian: Creeds, Confessions and Polity (Especially for those interested in WSPC membership but open to all) Presbyterians are Reformed Christians, and this makes us heirs to a particular view of the contemporary church’s relationship to its traditions. This class explores how these written and historic documents help us speak and live the gospel and be faithful witnesses in our time.
Christianity Explored: Christianity Explored is an informal way to investigate Christianity or just brush up on the basics. It explores who Jesus is, why he came and what it means to follow him.
- You don’t need to know anything about the Bible.
- You won’t be asked to read aloud, pray or sing.
- You can ask any question you want.
Richard Sibbes, The Bruised Reed: Isaiah 42:3 and Matt. 12:20 read, “a bruised reed he will not break and a smoldering wick he will not quench.” What a beautiful image for how Christ always treats his people! This is true both of individuals and of the church, and also of us before and after our conversion. This class will be an in-depth exploration of these passages of scripture supplemented by a classic book of the same title. From his victorious throne we hear the risen Jesus proclaim “Behold, I am making all things new” (Rev. 21:5). In our time together we will learn about his unrelenting commitment to this promise regardless of any circumstances (past or present) in our lives.
