~ CURRENT SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES ~
Adult Education classes are offered each Sunday morning.
Classes begin at 9:45 a.m. and run for one hour.
SUMMER SCHEDULE: JUNE 10 – July 29, 2018
In worship this summer, we will be spending time with the Old Testament stories of King David. These stories are found in the books of 1 and 2 Samuel.
Adults and Youth are invited to come together in the church Library following the 10:00 a.m. worship to discuss the sermon of the day.
Eugene Peterson, the author of the Bible translation The Message, has said, “We know more about [David] than anybody else in scripture, including Jesus.” With the character of David, we are given remarkable access to the inner life of a person over the course of virtually his entire life. We see him in stories of great courage, horrible moral failure, humility, grief, and faithfulness. His is an astonishing story, and we will be invited to ponder the ways that aspects of our individual stories may be glimpsed in his story.
We will expand upon the theme covered in the sermon and try to gain further insight into the life of one of the Old Testament’s central characters: King David.

WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY with Bag Lunch
Each WEDNESDAY, a weekly Wednesday Bible Study will be held in the Chapel from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. The Bible study will generally involve an exploration of the biblical text that will be preached the following Sunday. The study will usually be facilitated by Rev. Scott Ramsey or whoever will be preaching the next Sunday.
Bring a bag lunch, a Bible, and a curious heart and mind. We’ll have fun digging into the Scriptures! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Scott .

THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES SMALL GROUP
The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts is a #1 New York Times Bestseller by Gary Chapman. The book was first published in 1992 and was most recently republished in 2015.
Chapman posits that each one of us has a “primary love language” that when fulfilled keeps the “emotional love tank full.”
If you have been married for 15 years or fewer and would like to explore The 5 Love Languages with other married couples, then join The 5 Love Languages small group.
Dan & Tonya Deyo and Dave & Pattie Gunter will lead the group and help participants discover a renewed sense of their spouse’s love.
ABOUT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AT LEWINSVILLE
Lewinsville offers a variety of classes and special events to guide us during the program year in our individual and corporate journeys of faith, discovery, discernment, and service.
Lively discussions on faith and social issues. Look for our “Faith & Public Policy” classes during select modules during the year.
Probing Biblical and theological study. Each Adult Education module includes a course on the Bible and/or theology.
Life skills and religion and the arts. Our Adult Education classes include one course in this subject area.
Family of Faith Focus. We have an ongoing group of parents who explore what it means and how to raise children in our reformed tradition.
Multiple times and places for learning, including online. Even if you can’t attend all sessions of a class during the 9:45–10:45 hour on Sunday mornings, come when you can. Watch for our annual Lenten Studies program during Lent with a Biblical scholar, our Salzman Lecture each fall, and special Inter-generational events with an education focus.
Faith has been described as belief, commitment, relationship, and mystery. Lewinsville’s adult education program, Christ Care groups, women’s circles, faith and public policy breakfasts, and men’s and women’s retreats are opportunities to explore these dimensions of faith with others.
