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.

Annual Retreats

Men

Male in a Whale

Our Gathering This Year Will Use Jonah’s Story From The Old Testament. We will use this story as a conversation partner to explore questions like: 

  • Are you caught in a storm?
  • What is making waves in your life? 
  • What does it mean to love your enemies in today's polarized culture?

On this retreat, Men can expect:

  • A chance to discover a dynamic parallel between our lives and the powerful message conveyed in the words found in the story of Jonah. 
  • An opportunity to share and participate in open discussions and conversations.
  • Fellowship, prayer, worship with good food and lots of laughter. 
  • Chances to meet other men in our church and local community along with opportunities to develop new friendships.
