A variety of education classes for adults are held each Sunday during the school year (except the Sunday following Christmas and during the month of August) September through June, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Center for Education (CE) Building.

Adult Education

Bible Study Class

CE Room 1

This is a study-focused class that delves into the Bible as a personal religious or spiritual practice. The class is friendly and open to those with any level of familiarity with the Bible. This group rotates leadership and facilitation of the study sessions from among the participants and throughout the year looks to a variety of Bible Study resources for fresh and relevant material.

Living Our Faith Class

CE Room 4

This class explores a variety of topics with the intent of forming participants into those who consistently live out what they learn. Members in this class collaboratively generate ideas and areas of study to explore together throughout the year. Class facilitation is shared among participants with occasional guest teachers leading the discussion.

Book Group

CE Room 3

The Sunday Book Group has been meeting regularly since the 1970s to read and discuss books that explore all aspects of our own and other faith traditions, as well as the intersection of faith and the secular world.  Selections may include biography, history, theology, personal memoir, social commentary, and more.  Members of the group nominate and vote on which books to read.  The group does have a standing moderator, but individual members take turns leading the weekly discussion, usually one or two chapters at a time.

Parents Group

Library

Parents of children of any age are invited to gather in the UPC Library for fellowship and conversation about the struggles and joys of raising children. We ask questions like, “How do children develop a faith that becomes their own?” or “What are appropriate ways that children can learn to serve others?” Occasionally we engage in a book study. If you have young children and are seeking support, encouragement, ideas, or friends, this group is for you!
