Class Descriptions:

  • Embracing the Prophets (Conference Room): Who were the Prophets?  Were they ancient meddlers who enjoyed prognosticating about future events? Were they social activists crying out for reform?  Or, were they messengers from God, standing in judgment over the political and religious leaders of the times? To find the answers, join a study by Dr. Walter Brueggemann, facilitated by George Harper.
  • An Introduction to Yoga (Morrison Hall): Yoga is a vast collection of spiritual techniques and practices aimed at integrating mind, body, and spirit to achieve a state of enlightenment or oneness with the universe. Though yoga's ultimate aim is lofty, its essence is practical and scientific as it emphasizes direct experience and observable results. It is not a religion, but a practice of personal inquiry and exploration. As the cultural and religious diversity of parishioners attest, yogic philosophy speaks to universal truths that can be incorporated within any belief system.

  • "Try and make me!": Raising a Strong-Willed Child (Baker Parlor): Learn how to set limits, reduce power struggles, and understand your strong-willed child in this 4-week class. Parents will learn to recognize what triggers misbehavior and how to foster a relationship that will make their child more compliant. Facilitated by Beth McAlpine, Parent Educator at the Centers for Youth & Families. Cost:  $40 per family – cash or check payment due on the first night of class.
