Palms Adult Education Ministry Team recognizes that we all are in different places in our faith journey. Whether you are just starting to ask questions and seek understanding, or if you are a self-professed Bible study fanatic, we provide opportunities for your continued growth. Jesus’ disciples sat at his feet learning about the life of faith. This foundation enabled them to live their faith as they were sent out to serve God’s mission in the world. Through group studies on Sunday mornings and throughout the week, we also seek to learn from Jesus and one another about who we are and how we are to live as Christ’s disciples. We want to create safe space to discuss difficult issues of faith and doubt, to encourage one another in our journeys, and to be nurtured by the grace of Jesus Christ.
COME AND JOIN US FOR ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL BEGINNING @ 9:40AM
That You May Believe: the Gospel of John // RM 202
The Gospel of John is filled with signs and wonders, death and new life as John paints a picture for us of who Jesus is, where he has come from, and where he is going. John’s purpose is plain: “These things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, and believing…have life in his name.”
Parent’s Place // RM 204
A place to connect with other parents, share the joys and challenges of parenting, support one another, learn and grow together. Grandparents and parents in any stage of life are welcome!
Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture // Hess Chapel // Now - February 26
Walter Bruggemann’s study on confronting today’s pharoahs. Examine the poet-prophets in their own time and place. What is
their message for us today? What steps can we take to reclaim the prophetic message of distributive justice, nonviolence, loss and
hope? And what is your role in bringing God’s perspective to today’s society?
