Adult Education February 2020

Sunday Morning Education Hour has some great offerings for adults to grow, stretch, deepen and ground their faith and practice. Adults of every age and stage are welcome – young adults to senior citizens. Some courses are three or four weeks and some last for several months. We try to address these broad themes: Bible Study, Big Questions, Equipping the Saints, Life and Nurture, Mission, Spirituality, and The Twenty-First Century.


New February classes:

Conversations on Race Book Study: One Goal by Amy Bass

February 2, 9, 16, 23 —Room 258

We in Howard County know how much value there is in welcoming people from all nations, races, religions and orientations into our community. Sadly, that is not the case in all communities.

Please join us in February when we read One Goal by Amy Bass.

Thousands of Somali refugees resettled in Lewiston, Maine which made longtime residents uneasy. The mayor actually wrote a letter asking them to stop coming.

The high school soccer coach took a different approach and integrated the Somali kids into his team, thus helping the team and the community overcome their subconscious biases and prejudices.

We hope you will join us for the discussion of this uplifting book.
