Adult Sunday School
Sunday Morning Opportunities to Study God's Word
We have many classes for adults during the Sunday School hour (11:00 to 11:50 a.m.) that are offered on an ongoing basis. These classes rotate teachers and topics. Anyone is welcome to join any class at any time. The current classes and topics are:
Current Topic: Advent
We will consider the scripture texts of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols as celebrated at King's College, Cambridge (first celebrated on Christmas Eve, 1918 - just days after WW I ended). Various adaptations of the service are presented in many churches during the Advent season. The experience of the service draws the hearers into the music. This study will focus on the scripture texts. The service takes place at Kings College, Cambridge, every Christmas Eve at 3:00 p.m. (10:00 a.m. EST) and has been broadcast live on BBC radio every year since 1928.

Current Topic: Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther
Ezra and Nehemiah both discuss events in Jerusalem after the remnant returns from their Babylonian exile. Ezra was a scribe - he describes the return of the exiles in the first half of the book and his spiritual reforms in the second half. Nehemiah was an official in the Persian government. He records the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, emphasizing the importance of faithfulness to God and perseverance in the trials of life. Esther tells the story of a humble Jewish girl who becomes queen of Persia and her successful attempt to thwart a plan to eradicate her people. Her book does not mention God, the Law or the temple but still teaches that God is sovereign over every nation. He uses his people, regardless of social station, to accomplish his purposes. All three show courage in a crisis and can help us do the same.
