Adult Faith Formation are groups for adults that meets for thoughtful discussion on Sunday mornings and during the week. This adult education opportunity includes various Biblically-based and theologically thoughtful discussions.

Sunday Morning Adult Study

Through November 24, 8:45 am in the Upper Room
Using the great resource of our Presbyterian colleagues in Kansas City called Theoacademy, we will be taking 5 weeks to discuss “The Foundations of Presbyterian Discipleship.” The topics are: A People of Grace, Wicked Bad, Who Do They Say I Am?, Update Your Faith System, and Blessed to Be a Blessing. Join us for an hour of learning and empowerment as we deepen our faith together!

 Bible Study meets every Thursday morning at 10 am in the Upper Room of the church. This group digs deeper into the books of the Bible for insights about scripture and our faith journeys. All are welcome. For more information about which Book of the Bible the group is currently studying, please contact Bonnie Wehrenberg.

Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege 
Join us for this 8-week JustFaith class to be held on Tuesday nights in the Lounge at fpcw, from 6:30-8 pm, beginning October 8. Our Adult Faith Formation team is co-sponsoring this class with our friends across the street at St. Francis Xavier. The class awakens groups to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others. The class introduces a framework for understanding how power and privilege influences racial disparities. Most of all, we will explore how our faith informs our response to what we are learning, as well as have time to discern action steps for working toward racial equity in our community. To cover the class materials, we ask for a $50 registration fee. If that is a burden, please let us know and we will find a way to help. To sign up, contact elder Irris Boaz or Pastor Jeff Lehn. Lear more at justfiath.org or by contacting our co-facilitators, Vic Doucette or Mary Doucette.
