Exciting Changes to Bower Hill’s Adult Education Programming

Several Opportunities Available During the Second Hour

The theme Discover Connect Serve is our focus for Bower Hill’s Educational Program year that begins Sunday, September 10.  There are several offerings for adults following the worship service.  All options are designed to be stand-alone, so you can come when you are able without missing something!  Classes take place Sunday mornings after worship from 10:45-11:45 a.m.  Childcare and/or programming is provided for children and youth up to and including high school.

Adult Small Group Study

Meeting in room 206, is a study that will be led by our Parish Associate, Fred Leasure.  This class will cover various short-term studies as chosen by the leader and participants.  Beginning September 10, the first seven-week class will focus on the theme of God’s intervention into crisis.  Beginning with the Exodus, it will continue through the New Testament passages and conclude with a discussion of today’s unrest.

Adult Ed:  Faith Formation and Spiritual Development

Adult Education will now meet in room 204, just off of Fellowship Hall.  It offers something new each week focused on contemporary society and theology.  Led by various people, including guest speakers focused on current events, join in for DVD presentations on Faith and Science and thoughtful discussion.  Once a month, the group is led by Pastor Brian and combines with the confirmation class for a presentation on faith issues.

Connect and Converse

There are now two dedicated spaces to cultivate fellowship and conversation on Sunday mornings.  The Friendship Room is now open and available during second hour.  Additionally, room 202, the room next to the Friendship Room, has been rearranged and refreshed.  These spaces can be used to sit down and converse with people in a more comfortable setting after coffee hour.  Whether you take advantage of second hour childcare to catch up with a fellow parent, or just relax while you wait for your youth during second hour programming, there are great opportunities for fellowship during second hour.
