Adult Education

Congregational churches have always believed that people should learn as much as they can about our world and God’s place in it. We at Community Church believe that knowledge is not the enemy of faith, but rather that a curious mind can’t help but wonder and marvel at the beauty of our world and our place in it. We value questions as much or more than answers because questions invite us to keep on exploring. We recognize that all of life is spiritual and that there is no clear boundary between the sacred and secular. With that in mind, we invite anyone with a curious mind and a desire to learn to participate in our educational opportunities.

  • Five different Bible Study groups gather during the course of a week to deepen our understanding of the Scriptures as we view them through current scholarship, share our insights, and support each other as we attempt to live it out.
  • Wednesday evenings serve as our “Midweek Connection.” We share a meal, engage a topic through lecture, film, or interview, and then spend time discussing ways that we might think and live in new ways.
  • Each year our Ella Dodd Distinguished Lecture Series invites a nationally recognized scholar or author to open our minds and hearts to new ways of understanding our faith.


“Midweek Connection”

On Wednesday evenings where we share a meal, engage a topic through lecture, film, or interview, and then discuss ways to think and live in new ways. Dinner at 5 PM (Call 772-562-3633 to make a dinner reservation). The programming begins in Community Hall (no reservation needed, just come by) at 6 PM. All activities on campus, youth group, bible studies, etc. come together for a brief vespers service. Following this, there is a lecture or topic covered by clergy, laypeople or guests. Generally, this weekly event is finished at 7:30 PM. Click here for a brochure with all the upcoming speakers and events.
