Christian faith is a lifelong journey. God’s not done with you yet.
First United’s Adult Education program offers insight, growth, and fellowship with classes, workshops, intimate discussions, and presentations and lectures by leading scholars. Topics range from church history to current events to race relations to international issues, and always include a biblical perspective. Sometimes a series of classes is scheduled on specific topics that lend themselves to in-depth study. Adult ed is a ministry that drives learning, deepens faith, and wrestles with the relationship between God’s world and the human world.

After all the tragedy we have experienced in the last year during the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19, a two-session book study to study’s God’s role will be particularly poignant. Why do bad things happen? What does God have to do with it? The book is God Can’t: How to Believe in God and Love after Tragedy, Abuse, and Other Evils by Thomas Jay Oord. Join us via Zoom at 7:30 p.m. on Mondays, May 17 and 24. The discussion will be led by Kathryn Heavey and Anne Koerber. To sign up, email [email protected] with the subject line “God Can’t.”
