...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!”

APRIL  SCHEDULE

10:45  A.M.  SUNDAYS 

April 1:  Easter Sunday  -  Come and worship the Risen Lord with us on Easter Sunday!  No Adult Ed. classes will be held.

April 8:  Coffee and Conversation  -  Come to Room 9/10 after the service where Pastor Larry will join us for coffee and conversation on the topic of today’s sermon.

April 15:  Mission:  Bella’s Bumbas  -  Plan to come to the Sanctuary to hear how a Webster couple is changing the lives of families who have children with mobility disabilities by building toddler-sized wheelchairs and shipping them around the world.  Bella’s Bumbas is named after the couple’s niece, who inspired them to create something that would minimize her limitations as a toddler with spina bifida.  What a heart-warming and inspiring story that you won’t want to have missed!

April 22:  TBD

April 29:  Christianity on Campus  -  Rev. Nadia Mullin, Protestant Chaplain in the Center for Spirituality at Nazareth College, will speak in the Sanctuary about campus ministry and religious life at college.  How do students maintain and explore their faith while they are there?  What is the state of spirituality for young adults today?  How can faith considerations affect college selection?  Both youth and adults are welcome to attend.



Save the Date – New Members’ Class

A New Members’ Class will be offered on Sunday, April 29.  The class will meet in the Memorial Room during the Adult Education Hour (immediately following the 9:30 service), enjoy lunch together, and wrap up by 2:00 p.m.  Child care will be provided upon request.  For more information or to RSVP, please contact the church office (265-9700).

  

Memory Verse for April

The Spiritual Nurture Committee offers a memory verse or verses each month to use in your prayers for your children, your friends, your enemies, or anyone! 

“Show me your ways, Lord; teach me your paths.”

Psalm 25:4

 

Prayer  Under  the  Cross

Do you have a prayer need, joy, or concern?  On Sunday mornings there will be someone to pray with you under the cross after each service.  The Spiritual Nurture Committee plans to have one person in the front after the 8:00 a.m. service and two people after the 9:30 a.m. service.  Simply head to the front of the church and talk with the person(s) who is near the cross to have them pray with you.  Prayer requests could be for yourself or others for any type of need.  It could also be to share a joy or thank the Lord for what he has done in your or someone else’s life.  All prayer requests will be confidential unless indicated otherwise.

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.
