We call our Sunday Morning Adult Education Classes “Kirk Academy.” It is a forum in which we seek to deepen our understanding of the tenets of our faith and also seek out the ways in which our faith can inform our thinking about economic, social and political issues. Please join us in the Chapel at 9:40 a.m. for these opportunities to challenge and expand our thinking!
The Chapel Series meets at 9:30 Sundays during the regular worship year. They discuss a a subject as part of a multi-week lecture series.
The Bible Speaks Today
Our Sunday morning Bible study group will spend the remainder of the program year studying the Old Testament. Based on the OT portion of the Kerygma Series, Discovering the Bible, this is a survey course that will help participants grasp the flow of our story of faith. We’ll begin with its roots in the stories of Genesis and learn the basics of the history of Israel, including kings and prophets, triumphs and laments. This is a solid, thoughtful study for both those quite new to biblical study and those more experienced.
Leaders: Nancy Janisch and Steve Jones. Meets in the Library.
Midweek Bible Study: Thursday mornings
The Thursday Morning group meets in the Conference Room to discuss different topics over the course of the year. New participants are invited as we begin this new series.
Leader: Sherrill Vore, Minister for Christian Education, leads the group.
Small group opportunities
Westminster Book Group
The Westminster Book Group is a discussion group which welcomes all who wish to attend. The Book Group reads and savors books of fiction, poetry and plays, and occasionally views a film or video. We peruse a wide variety of authors, styles, and viewpoints, always seeking to nurture our own Christian growth through fictional circumstances and characters. The Book Group meets monthly, eight times a year, on Sunday evenings, at 7:30p in the church parlor. Each discussion is led by a group member or guest who has done a little research into the author's background and how has chosen some interesting aspects of the book to initiate discussion. Everyone who wishes, adds his or her insights and opinions.
The New Testament provides an online guide for a year of guided Bible reading. Weekly selections are brief and background information is provided. Opportunities for questions and reflection are available both in blog format and in the form of monthly "face-to-face" meetings at Westminster Presbyterian Church. You can join in at any point in the schedule by visiting the blog site at www.westminsterreads.org.
