Grace Presbyterian Church has a wealth of opportunities for adults to continue to develop their faith, including weekly Sunday morning programming, Tuesday night pub theology conversations, and monthly multi-age fellowship/explorations.
Faith formation is important. It affects how we as adults interact with God–and with our families and communities, in the workplace, and in the larger world. In addition, continued adult study models for our children that faith’s journey is never complete! Adults are encouraged to find regular opportunities to learn more, grow more, and reach deep.

Adult Discipleship Class (adults of all ages welcome)
Earlier this year, leaders from many different denominations gathered out of concern for the direction of the country and drafted a statement of faith, called Reclaiming Jesus. This fall the Adult Discipleship class will explore the work of this group around two key topics:
- September 16-30: Civil Discourse
- October 14-November 18: Who is Jesus Christ for Us Today?
New Software: Compatible with All Life OS Versions (Navigating Adulthood; for 18-35s)
No one made a “For Dummies Guide” to adulthood. With all the new levels of growth that are unlocked after graduation, it’s often hard to navigate outside of the tutorial levels that everyone calls school. This class is a trial period for adulthood, providing tools to deal with the unpredictable curve balls that life often ends up throwing into the path of each adult.
This class is to help YOUNG ADULTS become better and more well rounded adults by offering an opportunity to learn skills they can’t usually learn in a classroom setting and to discuss topics that are usually ignored in educational settings. We’re going to take on those harder conversations that most people want to ignore and see what our faith has to say about them.
Tuesday Conversations / Pub(lic) Theology
How do we come to grips with the dynamics and changes pushing at the church today? We don’t have all the answers, but conversation with others is a place to start. Starting September 11, we’ll gather at a local restaurant for fellowship and conversation on the issues of the day. Contact Nelson Thurman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
