Tanya Shedd leads a team of dedicated volunteers who coordinate the education opportunities for our children. During the school year, Sunday School is offered during the education hour between services (9 am – 10 am). Our confirmation units are offered once a month. Students move through the curriculum at their own pace. In 2017, we hope to have our first forays in intergenerational education.
We also offer special events geared towards young people. Pastor Inger led an “Advent After School” program, reviewing Bible stories with an interactive advent calendar. In the summer, we have a long tradition of holding Vacation Bible School.
Adults have multiple education opportunities. On Sundays between services (9 am – 10 am), a lively group is currently exploring Revelation. Previous focuses have included the ELCA’s The Use of the Means of Grace, the Apocraphya, and the book of Acts. Tuesday mornings, a men’s breakfast group gathers at The Virginian to look at the lectionary readings for the following Sunday. Once a month, a women’s group meets to discuss a book by a contemporary theologian.
