Adult education is a new area of growth for Good Sam. For a number of years, we have supported programs such as Cursillo as well as study sessions during Lent. We also have special sessions for people who wish to join the Episcopal church.
We have an adult education offering on Sundays at 11:00am in the central area in Roetter Hall, unless otherwise announced.
The Adult Education Lecture Series contains a few downloadable mp3s from past classes.
Other opportunities for adult Christian education include: bible studies for Young Adults and Parents of School Age Children and our small groups.
The Wednesday morning bible study is starting a new book, "The Gift of Forgiveness" which is part of the Women of the Word Bible Study series.
How can you forgive those who have hurt you? How can you know that God has forgiven you? In this books, readers learn how to accept God's forgiveness for their sins and to extend forgiveness to others. Through personal stories any woman can relate to-about family, career and church-The Gift of Forgiveness deals honestly and compassionately with this tough yet necessary choice: the choice to forgive.
Eight sessions of Bible study cover such topics as "Experiencing God's Forgiveness," "Why Forgiveness Is Hard," "Loving Your Enemies" and "The Power of the Cross." Readers will examine the challenges of accepting and offering forgiveness, dig into the teachings of Scripture and reflect on their own relationships. Each session wraps up with action steps for applying to their everyday lives what readers learn from God's Word.
Interested? Diana Davis needs to know by April 27 so books can be ordered in time for starting.
