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 Mornings from 8:15-9:00 a.m.
Led by Clarence Bauman
God's World and God's People!
Beginning September 2, the 8:15 a.m. Sunday School class will begin a new quarter of study. The focus is "God's World and God's People!" The wonders of the universe amaze even the keenest minds and that is just what we know. There is so much we do not know about space to the tiniest of single cell life. Genesis 1 tells us that God is the Creator of all these marvelous wonders. AND God felt really good about the creation. But it is not good enough for God to say "it is good" or for us to say "it is awesome!" He wants us to say "THANK YOU!" And to praise and worship Him for what is experienced in the natural world and for our very life itself!
As we meet together this quarter, we will uncover God's character as Creator, Sustainer, Judge and Redeemer. God not only created us to worship Him but to be co-laborers with sinful humanity in reconciling and recreating order in all things.
Join us in the Conference Room behind the office area at 8:15 a.m. each Sunday morning.
Sunday, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m., September - June, Library
On September 9th the 9:00 a.m. Adult Sunday School class will begin a four-week study on A Living Hope - Living in Light of the Resurrection that is based on Tim Mackie's (The Bible Project) teaching on I Peter 1:3-12. We will watch Tim's message and discuss the book Man's Search for Meaning, by Vicktor Frankl, that Mackie commends throughout his message.
Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. In 1 Peter 1, the Apostle identifies the purpose for Christians in that "In his great mercy God has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade."
Everyone is welcome; come join us in the Library at 9:00 a.m. If you would like a copy of the book ($6.00 payable to LPC), or if you would like more information, contact Jim or Marianne Miller.
Have you ever wanted to see a visual summary of the major themes of each of the books of the Bible? The Bible Project will let us see this summary in unique five-eight minute videos to help us understand the Scripture messages.
Come join us on Sunday afternoons from 12:30 p.m. –1:30 p.m. in the LPC Music Room. Because of the new graphic presentation of The Bible Project and our group discussion, both beginning Bible students and those who have studied the Bible extensively will benefit from this study.

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.
