Adult Education Class

Adult Education Classes at Living Lord Lutheran Church

Adult Education's "Kindred Spirits" have been meeting for 9 years on Monday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30 AM from October to May, including about 50 individuals attending during that time. We have studied the Old Testament, Jesus and the Gospels, Great Figures of the New Testament, Lives of Great Christians, Understanding World Religions, the History of Christian Worship, and Comparative Religion, while sharing many hours of discussion, Bible study, prayer, and readings on our learning journey. Our group of men and women, friends and members, like to be challenged by the courses and enjoy discovering new ideas and sharing their viewpoints. We have a core group of 20 regular kindred spirits, but have had as many as 38 seated in Fellowship Hall on a few occasions. Our weekly lesson plan includes videos presented by scholarly experts followed by discussion and a preview of the next lesson.

During the 2017-2018 program year, we will have two major topics. From October 2nd thru December 11th our series will be titled The Reformation: This Changed Everything. After a brief break for Christmas and New Years we will study The Apostle's Creed: It's origin and relevance for today. It will be a study of the Creed's historical context, and a discussion of each phrase by interdenominational theologians who emphasize its application to our lives today. This course will refresh your Sunday worship recitation and provide you with a deeper understanding of Christian beliefs. We'll see why the Creed unites and defines "mainstream" Christianity.
