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.

Read and discuss Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

"A blade of grass - a biblical symbol of life's frailty  - reaches across the book jacket just above the title, which itself reminds us that we are bound to die." ("In Review: Incurable Condition," Christian Century132 no 4 Feb 18 2015, p 32-33.) From relationships, to living arrangements, to healthcare decisions, how does the certainty of death shape the way we live? If we profess that "in life and death we belong to God" how are those matters further informed? Read Gawande’s book (copies available in W312 for $15.60) and join with others to explore these kinds of questions. We’ll hold this conversation on March 16, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Chapel. Contact Lisa Hebacker (staff) for further information.

Cover-to-Cover is a year-long read through the bible. There are lots of ways you can participate in this adventure at WMPC - choose one or do them all!
  • Follow the plan and read the bible, cover-to-cover. The January plan is below; other months will follow. You can also pick up printed year-long plans around campus. (Note: this will be a roughly chronological read through the bible - we’ll mix it up a bit rather than reading straight through.)
  • Gather with other Cover-to-Cover readers on first Sundays at 9:30 in C302 to take a look ahead and share the experience.
If you read through the bible every year or if you’ve never made it through the whole bible, join us for this shared journey in faith as we attend to scripture from Cover-to-Cover.

http://www.whitememorial.org/uploads/DiscipleII.jpg Disciple II: Into The Word Into The World
Come join our new DISCIPLE II Class! This is your opportunity to participate in a small group that offers wonderful Bible study and great fellowship.

DISCPLE II: INTO THE WORD INTO THE WORLD encourages persons to open themselves to hearing what God has to say to them through the Bible and to be guided into service in the world.

This thirty-two-week in depth study of scripture will meet January 13-June 8 and September 7-December 14. Disciple II gives equal attention to both the Old and New Testaments with concentration on four books: Genesis, Exodus, Luke and Acts. Appropriate connections are made to other parts of scripture both through reading and study assignments and through commentary in the study manual. Participants will read familiar passages, see them in fresh ways and anticipate that God will speak through them.

This class will begin Wednesday, January 13, 2016, and meets in K307 from 6:30 to 8:00. Dan Daniel is the facilitator. Sign up today by emailing or calling Tracey Daniel at 919-834-3425 ext. 247.
