Adult Education

Sundays - 9:30-10:30 a.m. In Friends Hall

The adult education programs at Saint Andrew Christian Church provide a means of developing a deeper understanding of our faith and how we can best apply our faith in ways that strengthens our community and the world. We believe the best way to learn is through dialog in a safe and respectful environment and that is what you will find here.

The Adult Education Committee strives to bring classes ranging from environmental topics, to social issues, to scriptural and theological studies. Each series is led by speakers who are experts in their field and have a passion to share with us as we continue the challenge to "seek God, create community, and practice justice" in our daily lives.
