Children’s Education

This Fall join your teachers as they journey through the award-winning Weaving God’s Promises curriculum!  This year will be focused on “Weaving Our Faith” and will include lessons on the story of our salvation: from the Fall of humanity to our redemption in Jesus Christ.  Children will learn that God stays with us, no matter what!

 

Adult Education

September 25 – November 20: (Seven-Week Session) The Churches the Apostles Left Behind by Raymond Brown.

Fr. Patrick will begin the year with a major educational opportunity answering the question: “What can we understand about the early church based on the post-apostolic writings of the New Testament?”  Together, we’ll topically cover each of the early communities in their post-apostle state and discuss what their struggles can teach us today.  (Breaks on October 23 for a one-off class by Deacon Greg Doll and November 6 for All Saints’ Day baptisms.)

 

November 27 – December 18:  ADVENT! (Four-Week Session) Celebrating Incarnational Ministry in Manhattan!  The Season of Advent is about preparing for the coming of the Lord and is a celebration of the Incarnation of Christ.  This year we will be welcoming guests each week who do incarnational work in Manhattan through their service organizations:  Shepherd’s Crossing, The Emergency Shelter, and the Crisis Center.  Come and join us to learn about these incarnational leaders and learn how we can partner with them!
