AUTUMN 2020 TERM - Adult Thematic Courses (All students must register.):

    • SOUND (Teachers: Min. Constance Dunlap & Deacon Ed Hill) Do you want to improve your shower-choir singing skills? Learn how to better hear and sing in harmony with others (and join the choir when that’s a thing again). Explore how to harmonize your work and life with others. When sound-editing videos and recordings, certain sounds and voices can be lessened or magnified. Could your life benefit from some sound editing?

    • SIGHT (Teachers: Rev. Cynthia Turner, Julien Turner & Justen Turner of Dreadhead Films)  Does your Zoom life need an upgrade? Three-point lighting could upgrade your virtual world and help you consider which areas of your life need more light. If your life were a photograph, what parts would you bring into better focus? Let’s learn how to crop some things out!

    • MOVEMENT (Teacher: Min. Tasha Moore)  Dancers learn how to pirouette (spin) without losing their balance. Lets explore how can you keep your spiritual balance and focus when life throws you into a tailspin.

  2. BOOK OF JONAH - (Teacher: Bro. John Boxill)  Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, this class offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those God has called to participate in His reconciling work. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?

  3. WHAT'S THE ALTERNATIVE? - (Teacher: Sis. Jocelyn Armstrong)  As we approach the 2020 election, there are many problems and plans for the systems of our society: healthcare, education, housing, criminal justice, etc. If Christians are called to be counter-cultural, what are some of the “alternative” approaches to our civic life that a Christian perspective can offer? Join our social justice initiative in this collective exploration of putting faith study and thought into tangible solutions for our community.
