About the event

Adult Faith Formation Opportunities!

Discovery Class–Serious Play, Part 1 of 2, will be led by Pastor Liz Bidgood Enders. I believe we should take our faith seriously, but rarely somberly. That includes how we study the Bible and explore matters of ministry. We will look at several biblical stories of discipleship and service through playful engagement, group reflection, and an invitation for deeper contemplation. Part 1 will be about using a process created by Ameila Boomershine called “Circle of the Word,” we will explore Mark 4:35-41, paying attention to words and phrases that jump out to us. This session will give a contemplative way to engage scripture alone or with a group through prayer, journaling, focusing on an object, and imagination. This class is live-zoomed and recorded.

Bible Explorations–This new intergenerational adult class will focus upon questions such as: Do you want to know more about the Bible? If so, what about the Bible would you like to learn? The first several sessions will center upon an overview of the contents of the Bible as well as an overview of the time periods in which the Bible was written. This class will be taught by retired Pastor and scholar Dave Leiter. (Room 106)

Young Adult Class–Discussion group geared towards post high school, those who are working, college age students at Etown College or elsewhere, 20 year olds post college, etc. (Parlor)

Chalkboard Chat–This is an unstructured class to meet in for conversation. Each week prompts will appear on the Chalkboard that can be used to inspire dialogue. (Room 110)

Sip N’ Chat–Located in Memorial Lobby this time will offer an informal space for those just looking to gather with some coffee and conversation during the Faith Formation Hour.
