The mission of Adult Education is to offer a variety of learning settings for both the seeker and the follower of Jesus Christ in order to equip believers with resources and fellowship opportunities necessary for Christian maturity. We believe our mission will be accomplished by exploring and studying the Word of God, by instilling and nourishing a deep love for God’s Word, and by providing a foundational understanding of the Christian faith.

Sunday, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m., September - June, Library
On Sunday, February 4, the Adult Sunday School class began an eight-week study of Why Suffering? Finding Meaning and Comfort When Life Doesn't Make Sense by Ravi Zacharias and Vince Vitale.
The authors carefully walk you through a variety of responses that consider providing clear, comprehensive, and convincing answers to the following questions: Where there is the possibility of love, there has to be the reality of freedom, and therefore the possibility of pain. The cross is the key to a compelling and rational explanation for trusting in God in the face of suffering. The reality of evil only makes sense in light of the reality of divine goodness. God's decision to allow temporal suffering is understandable when viewed from an eternal perspective. Divine goodness shows how to conquer not in spite of, but even through suffering.
The book is written with great respect for the complexity of the issue, recognizing that some who read it will be in the trenches of deep suffering themselves and others questioning the very existence of a loving God.
If you would like us to order a copy of the book ($10.00 payable to LPC), or if you need more information, please contact Jim or Marianne Miller.
Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
Tuesday afternoons at 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. in the Church Library

Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) is an in-depth, interdenominational Bible study that helps people know God and equips them to effectively serve the church throughout the world. In more than 1,000 classes in 39 countries, people of all ages, races and cultures participate in BSF, whether they are discovering God's Word for the first time or have studied the Bible over a lifetime.
Bible study draws us closer to God and helps us better understand Him, His Word and His love. Through a stronger relationship with God, members have discovered how to build better and stronger relationships with others at home, work, school and in our communities. In the more than 50 years since our founding, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children have participated in BSF. Many have gone on to assume leadership positions in their churches and to serve God in other ministries.
