Sunday School for Adults

Christian Parenting:

The Christian Parenting Sunday School Class will begin meeting on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. on Zoom starting on September 12th. Our class will read and study the inspiring book, The Parent You Want to Be, by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott. Your child internalizes your traits more than anyone else’s. Therefore, you as a parent, want to cultivate the most important traits in yourself that you want your child to have. The book focuses on worthwhile characteristics such as being attentive, connected, authentic, insightful, prayerful and comforting. Learn ways to become the parent you want to be. You will be inspired to develop the qualities that are important to you. If you have questions or request the Zoom link, please contact  Jim & Judy Wilson (919-933-1646).

 

Christianity, Literature, and the Arts: …

Creative artists rekindle the human instinct of awe at the universe, help us look at our world and ourselves in new ways, illuminate and deepen our Christian understandings. “In the beginning was the Word,” the Gospel of John declares.  And so in this class we continue to read, re-read, and discuss the words from many of the acclaimed fiction writers and essayists of our time. Additionally, music and the visual arts have regularly enhanced our class time and we have recently increased our emphasis on these arts. Brent Wissick and Steve Squires provide direction; class sessions are group discussions with participation from all. This class will meet on Zoom on Sundays at 10 a.m.

All are welcome to this class that continues to enjoy the legacy of its long-time former leader Joe Flora, retired UNC English professor.
