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.
The Saint John's Bible and Labyrinth Walk Event
On Saturday, January 17, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., all are invited to a special day featuring several opportunities for prayer, reflection, learning and fellowship that are being offered in connection with this extraordinary exhibit. The Prayer Ministry will host an area for Centering Prayer, and also offer the return of a labyrinth for people to walk. The Way Station will be open for families to enjoy. A soup lunch will be served and Anathea Portier-Young, an associate professor from Duke Divinity, will speak, with a Q&A to follow.

Disciple One Bible Study
Disciple One is a 34 week Bible Study that gives an overview of the entire Bible. This Bible study is intended for a small group of eight to twelve participants. Each week there are daily Bible reading assignments along with commentary and questions for reflection and response. Most participants will need to devote three to four hours a week to the preparation needed for this study. The scholarship is excellent. If you really want a thorough overview of the Bible this study is for you.
Disciple One meets once a week for a short video lecture by a Biblical scholar followed by sharing and discussion of the readings from the week. The class is made rich by the participation of the small group members. Not only is this Bible study designed to help you learn more about the Bible, it also provides a wonderful opportunity to build community in your small group.
Our next Disciple One class will begin January 7, 2015. The class will meet from January through May, take a break during the summer, begin after Labor Day and run through December. Call or email Daniella Kamis-Brown, 919-834-3425, ext. 212 to register before the deadline December 20, 2014.
