Children’s Learning:

We are continuing to offer in-person learning opportunities for children following the Sunday morning worship service. We are using Cokesbury’s Celebrate Wonder curriculum again this year. All children ages 3-11 are welcome. All facilitators and participants will be asked to wear masks. Children’s Sunday school for the spring semester will begin this week, January 16.

Intergenerational Learning:

This winter, we are continuing our Sunday morning learning opportunities, and we are beginning with a block of 6-week classes. Two classes will be offered at 10:15am each Sunday, beginning on January 16 and ending on February 20. There will be no Sunday morning classes on February 27. Classes are open to anyone ages 12 and up. All facilitators and participants will be asked to practice social distancing and wear masks, per our church protocols. Each class is listed below.

Unafraid – Led by Dinah Lockhart   In Unafraid, Adam Hamilton shows how people and communities can flourish as beacons of hope and serenity in an anxious age. With insight, intention, and faith, we can learn to overcome what oppresses us and live with courage and hope. This class will include both videos and readings from the book, Unafraid. Books will be available for purchase in the church office, with a suggested cost of $18.

Faithful Conversations and the 1619 Project – Led by Rita and Brian Carter   This will be an introductory class on the book The 1619 Project, which “aims to reframe to country’s history” by re-centering “the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans” in our national narrative. The class will include 6 videos and 6 selected readings, and there will be time for discussion and questions. There may be an additional option to attend via Zoom. This class is limited to 12 participants.
