Education at WPC
In the Presbyterian Church (USA), faith formation has always been one of the highest priorities of the church’s ministry.
The education ministry at WPC is comprehensive with opportunities for children and adults. The majority of our educational opportunities occur on Sunday morning, but others occur at various times during the week. Check our newsletter for more information.
Led by: Deanna Hollas, Rev. Amy Moore and Rev. Lillian Smith
Sundays, February 11 - March 25
9:45 am - Room 102
Begin and end this Lenten season by attending Spiritually Speaking. This Sunday school class is lead by guest speakers Deanna Hollas, Rev. Amy Moore and Rev. Lillian Smith. This will be a great experience for all. Come and bring a friend.
In 1983 when the?Northern Presbyterian Church (UPCUSA) merged with the Southern Presbyterian Church (PCUS) to form the Presbyterian Church (USA), there were two areas of growth defined: social justice and spirituality. While social justice took off, spirituality was left in the dust. Why? Many scholars say that we Presbyterians do faith really well. Yet, we lack the spiritual disciplines that lead deeper and meaningful experience with God.
This class will discuss Reformed Spirituality, experience a variety of prayer and spiritual disciplines, seek formational knowledge of Scripture, and touch on group spiritual direction. It will be a time of discovery as we seek freedom in our experience of God in the world. As a covenant community, we will establish a foundation of listening to one another as we check our?"fix-it"?thinking at the door.
