Adult Christian Education

Our Christian Education programs provide offerings throughout the year that nurture us as we grow spiritually, and follow the Way of Christ in becoming disciples so that we may lead others. Diverse topics include foundation classes, small group Bible or book studies, social justice issues, and theology & church history. Classes are offered Sundays in between services, as well as weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings. Volunteer presenters are always welcome, whether you feel led to present a single class or facilitate a multi-week class. For more information, contact Adrian Quintanilla at (210) 551-5909 / [email protected] or Karen Fulton at [email protected]

Sacred Ground is a film and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Our group will walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. If you are interested in being a part of the class beginning in September, please fill out the interest form linked above.

Sacred Ground will meet on Zoom every other Thursday at 7pm beginning October 7. Find Zoom details by emailing [email protected]

Bible in 90 Days

In our faith community, we believe to grow in faith, we need to challenge ourselves and feed our faith. Beginning this Fall we are doing both, as we feed our faith with God’s Word, and challenge ourselves to read the entire Bible from cover to cover. That’s Right! Our goal is to read every word of the Bible in 90 days and to grow in relationship, with each other, as we discuss our readings weekly. We understand that Scripture is the place where we ground our faith – our understanding of God and the world we live in. Reading the Bible will strengthen our faith and will provide us an opportunity to grow deeper in relationship with our Creator. Please join Jim Whitcomb and Adrian J. Quintanilla as they facilitate this class. There will be an opportunity to purchase a Bible and Reading Guide for a small donation. However, you do not need to purchase any materials to participate in this class and may use your own Bible.

Bible in 90 Days will meet in the Parish Hall on Sundays at 10am beginning September 19.

An online participation option for this class is offered via Zoom. Find Zoom details in our weekly eNews or by emailing [email protected]
