Adult Education Opportunities
White Memorial offers a number of opportunities for Christian Education for adults so they can continue their study of the Bible and their spiritual development. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings and during the week. Often the insights gained in adult Christian Education activities lead to a fuller, richer faith journey, fellowship and more active involvement in the ministry of the church.

Adult Church School Elective during Lent
“Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. On earth as it is in heaven.”
We say these words of the Lord’s Prayer, together, almost every Sunday in worship. Our study of the Promotion of Social Righteousness during this season of Lent challenges us to explore our Christian responsibility—not about what we are called to do, but about who we are called to be, as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Led by the pastors of WMPC, please join us for this adult church school elective at 9:30, Sunday morning:
March 16 Pickard Hall
March 23 Geneva
March 30 Geneva
April 6 Geneva
This study is based on the book, The Promotion of Social Righteousness, by Cynthia Rigby. For those interested in supplemental reading you may purchase ($10) the book from Daniella Kamis-Brown in the church office. The book is not required for participation in the class.
