this week's adult education offerings


  • Seekers Class are beginning a new study, "Allegiance to Empire." This series of films is to provide ways in which the Christian community can serve the world and at the same time be faithful to God’s vision of the Peaceable Kingdom. In this curriculum, we will look at the myth of the “Christian” nation. The first video is "Resisting Empire." God loves countries, nations, people, diversity, ethnicity and culture. What God does not love is “empire”, those who believe they have the right to rule the nations and shape history according to their agendas.  Join us for the conversation!
  • Challenges and Choices the April planning group kicks off with Duane Stock, who will be talking about immigration issues. If you are so inclined to work ahead, Duane will be showing some of this video: “ 6 Big Changes to US Immigration in 2021 (What You Should Know)”.  Bring your questions and observations on this timely topic!
  • Listening for God class is listening to a variety of speakers for their discussions. Please listen to Kate Bowler's podcast, Everything Happens for a Reason, the episode with an interview of Margaret Feinberg titled, “Joyful Anyway.” (Listening to the podcast ahead of time allows the group to spend all their class time in discussion.) We look forward to having you join the conversation!
  • Roots and Wings Are you struggling to find your way forward when it feels like everything is falling apart?  This is the theme of the new series we are starting this week, titled “Faith Shift,” featuring the author Kathy Escobar.  She is a co-pastor for The Refuge, a community outreach center in North Denver that pays particular attention to those who are living on the margins.  Come learn more about this ministry.
