Adult Education Sunday Mornings - 8:50 - 9:50
ACT I and ACT II
(Adult Christian Thought I and II)
Our First Adult Education Offering (ACT I) is geared to the
needs of our families. As our children are in their education hour we invite their parents (and others interested friends) to grab a
cup of coffee and join us at the same time.
Elder Per Ralamb and Paul DeJong are leading the Hilltop Adult Christian
Education Ministry. At Hilltop we are blessed to have a variety of Adult
Christian Education activity including Men's Bible Study on Saturday mornings,
Women's Bible study on Thursday mornings and Sunday morning Adult Christian
Education class - among others.
Over the summer Per and Paul have been working with Pastor Bob and Elisabeth on
the Adult Christian Education (ACT 1) class for the upcoming year. We are
excited to outline our ideas. The process we are using connects that
Sunday's sermon and scripture lesson with facilitated discussion during class
time. Each week we will have a rotating facilitator from the class so no
one person will be "saddled" with the responsibility of leading each
class. Pastor Bob will provide set of questions in advance - at least one
week prior. We will begin Rally Day - September 13.
ACT II: "Theology On Tap"
Pastor Heppenstall will be leading
a new Adult Education offering this Fall in a new whole new location... and a
whole new day and time.
ACT II will meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
at the Pub... in the back room... beginning September 16th.
That is where we will gather for informal reflections
of some of the theological framework of our faith.
Order dinner (on you) if you like
or just something cold to drink.
Stay as long as you like.
ACT II is designed especially
for those who are not in a hurry to get somewhere and would like to take time to
reflect on the meaning that lies behind the Christian Journey. Discussion
will be informal but there will be reading resources available for those
interested in going deeper. The time also makes it possible for the
Sanctuary Choir, our teachers and other friends to participate in an education
offering if they choose.
Clearly this is an "out of the
box" experiment for us! Anyone and everyone is welcome and we will
evaluate how this has worked in mid-November.
