Education for Faith and Life: 2012-2013
Faith Seeking Understanding
Education for adults at Westminster bridges our faith tradition with real life. Seminary and college professors provide outstanding teaching. Small group studies offer time to dig deeper and get to know others better. Movie of the Month draws on documentaries and feature films to explore the year’s theme. The January All-Church Book Read engages the whole congregation in reading a novel together and meeting for book discussions. Traveling Seminars provide an experience for learning, community, and spiritual pilgrimage to grow in faith as well as in knowledge. The 2012-2013 Adult Ed catalog is online!

Living the Faith in the 21st Century
Time & Location: Wednesdays at 5:30pm in the Bates Room
Leader: Dr. Chad Quaintance
Living the Faith is about to begin a new unit -- on Paul’s letter to the Romans, with a focus on John Calvin’s overview of that letter, a letter central to Presbyterian tradition and theology. The plan is to read and discuss a chapter of Romans each week. The goal of the class is to engage Paul and explore our own beliefs. This is not an academic class, but a class for forming and informing our faith. Bring your Bible if you have one (plenty are available). A copy of Calvin’s brief introduction to Romans will be provided. All are welcome. You are invited to bring your dinner to the Bates Room; coffee and water will be provided. (Dinner in the Refectory begins at 5:15pm).
