Adult Christian Formation


Sunday Morning Adult Forum

The Sunday Morning Adult Forum meets September through May at 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall.

Canoeing the Mountains
June 16 through July 28 (no class July 7)
Written by a Presbyterian minister and seminary administrator with 27 years of parish leadership experience, Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory challenges church leaders to develop new and different strategies from what worked years ago when churches were full and Sunday mornings were sacrosanct. The author compares the experience of Lewis and Clark—who were completely unequipped to tackle the Rocky Mountains and yet somehow managed to find a way through—with the situation of the Church today, where leaders tend to keep trying old strategies in this new and unfamiliar territory. Dawn Edquist and Al Roby will facilitate a summertime discussion of Canoeing the Mountains from June 16 through July 28, with a break on July 7. Everyone who is interested is encouraged to take part in this crucial conversation so that we can learn and think and grow and pray together. Canoeing the Mountains is available on amazon.com for about $16. Anne+ is happy to buy the book for you if that would be helpful; just contact the church office.

The Problem of Evil
More info coming soon!
The votes are in!  This August, John Herbst will be leading the Adult Form in a series of conversations about biblical responses to the Problem of Evil.  Over four weeks, we will discuss 8-10 Bible passages that try to answer the question, "why does God allow bad things to happen to good people?" Stay tuned for more!

Clergy or other leaders offer an age appropriate lesson based on the lectionary of the day and music is led by our Minister of Music Brad Norris.

Vacation Bible School
Hilton Area Churches Vacation Bible School, usually held in early July each year, is an ecumenical program which includes five area churches. It began over 25 years ago and continues to be an important collaborative ministry each summer. Adult and youth volunteers begin preparing months in advance to ensure that the children attending benefit from an enriching Christian education experience. Our volunteers work alongside volunteers from other churches and together share in the mission to communicate God’s love to all.
