Adult Education Opportunities

Sunday morning Adult Education begins at 10:10 a.m. in room 121. Various speakers present on a wide array of subjects including community, service, and opportunities to grow as individuals and the Church. Grab your coffee and treat and join us at 10:10 a.m. on Sundays.

Upcoming Adult Education

March 10 & 17: Dr. Daniel Black, Wartburg College professor, will discuss how faith and science work together.

March 24 & 31 and April 7: Rev. Kristin Wendland will lead three sessions on lament. The practice of bringing one’s sadness, complaints, and even anger to God is an ancient practice. Lament is more than emotional catharsis. It is different from whining. Lament is an action of hope, and a statement of faith. In these three weeks attendees will look at lament psalms, a poem from the book of Lamentations, and the role of lament in Christian life.

April 14: Finance committee presents the 2019-20 budget.

April 21: No Adult Education

April 28: Annual Meeting

Grief Support Group meets the third Thursday of the month from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Parish Hall room 310. Anyone who has suffered loss is welcome to attend this informal opportunity to share grief experiences and support one another. There is no cost and you are welcome to invite someone for support or whom you feel might benefit from the group. Led by Pr. Larry Trachte.

Senior Adult Lunch is for St. Paul’s members and guests, typically over the age of 65. Senior Adult Lunch can be interpreted as a “lunch and learn” type of event. It takes place on the last Tuesday of each month in the St. Paul’s Parish Hall. The program begins at 11:30 a.m. and varies from month to month. Lunch follows the program, and a free-will offering is collected.

You are invited to join Pr. Mike Sherer and a group of thoughtful seekers and learners for an eight-week study/discussion series. Beginning Tuesday, March 5, the group will explore the contents of "Days of Awe and Wonder," never-before-published writings by Dr. Marcus Borg. Although he died in 2016, his voice continues to prod and provoke the faithful to lives of deeper service and commitment. Join us in Parish Hall room 310 from 4-5 p.m. For more information, call Mike at 352-1443.
