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.
Advent Hymn Study - Begins Sunday December 1, 9:30 in room C204.
The hymns of Christmas refocus our spirits and remind us of the holiness and mystery of God's incarnation. This Advent study explains the history behind some of our favorite carols and helps us encounter the rich wording anew. Focusing on the ways in which words and music can speak to the core of our experiences, we will spend time in reflection, conversation, and simple enjoyment of these beloved hymns. Each week is a different hymn. No musical ability required. Come for one or all.
"O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"
"Silent Night, Holy Night"
"O Little Town of Bethlehem"
"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"
Extend the worship experience into the week....
