...that all may come to know Jesus Christ, to love Him, to serve Him, and to enjoy Him forever.
 

ADULT EDUCATION

The goal of Adult Education is to help people come to know Jesus Christ, to love Him, and enjoy Him forever.  Adult Education sessions help people to grow spiritually in the company of other Christians and learn how Jesus would have us live our lives today.

Topics include Bible study, exploring what we believe, applying the Bible to life today (prayer, parenting, e.g.), the Church (worship, early history, e.g.), and Church and Society.  Sessions on the missions the church supports and peacemaking topics are also included.  In most sessions, discussion and questions are encouraged.  Different learning modes are also used (presentations, videos, drama, etc.).  Please join us!

“Learning for a Lifetime” is the motto of Adult Education at Webster Presbyterian.  Pastor David Jeremiah writes:  “I believe we should all be enrolled in a lifelong school of continuing spiritual education.  How?  Be a personal student of God’s Word; attend a church that is faithful to building up the saints through strong and faithful teaching; read books of theology and practical Christian living; ask your pastor or others you trust for answers to your questions; share your faith with others and help them gain the knowledge they need.  In short, never stop learning!”

Coffee and Conversation on the Sermon

On Sundays when it seems fitting, you are invited to get a cup of coffee and then come back into the Sanctuary after the 9:30 service for a conversation – a dialogue – together about the text, the sermon, the worship.  Come with questions, comments and thoughts, and we will be one another’s teachers!  Watch the weekly bulletin for details.


Your Ideas Needed!

The Adult Education Committee is seeking members of the congregation who have a special program to share during a Sunday Adult Ed. hour.  Also, if there are ideas for programs, the Committee is open to them!  Contact Bob Smith (315-524-5339) for more information or to share your ideas.
