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
The 8:15 a.m. Adult Sunday School Class meets in the Conference Room behind the offices in the Welcome Center. Everyone is WELCOME. The class is studying the International Sunday School lessons. Our study this quarter is the theme of "Love" as seen in Deuteronomy and Psalms. Following Advent we'll look at the nature of God's love as seen through the Epistles. Come join us.
On January 5th the 9:15 am Adult Sunday School class will begin a twelve-week study of C. S. Lewis’s classic masterpiece of religious satire, The Screwtape Letters.
In the 31 letters which constitute the book, Screwtape the devil gives Wormwood his protégé detailed advice on various methods of undermining God's words and of promoting abandonment of God in "the Patient", interspersed with observations on human nature and on the Bible. In Screwtape's advice, selfish gain and power are seen as the only good, and neither demon can comprehend God's love for man or acknowledge human virtue. This negative approach points out many of our human failings and helps us depend more fully on God’s grace.
If you would like a copy of the book, or if you have any questions about the class, contact Jim or Marianne Miller. The 209-page book is $11.00. The Kindle version of the book is $2.99. In addition, you can download free .pdf files of the text from various websites.

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.
