Adult Education Opportunities

Adult Education at White Memorial
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.

Faith & Film
Gather with other film lovers in the Chapel on April 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to view and consider the 1984 film Places in the Heart. We’ll look for faith-related themes that emerge from the film and discuss how those themes might challenge or encourage our lives of faith.

Places in the Heart premise (from IMDb): In 1930's Southern US, a widow and her family try to run their cotton farm with the help of a disparate group of friends. Starring: Sally Field (best actress academy award), Danny Glover and John Malkovich.





Christian Marriage, the Bible and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Two concurrent five-week series of classes will study marriage in the Christian tradition. We will study Biblical passages and what the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has said on marriage, including the most recent action taken at the General Assembly in the summer of 2014.

The series of classes are offered:
Sundays, February 22-March 22 at 9:30-10:30 a.m. in Geneva Hall
or
Wednesdays, February 25-March 25 at 7:00-8:00 p.m. in C200
