Adult Classes & Bible Studies, Men & Women’s Ministries
Adult Education & Faith Formation
God wants to know us and we want to know him. We do this by studying his Word in the Bible and other resources for learning about our faith. The Adult Education Team works to increase Biblical literacy, enlighten on religious matters, provide practical advice for Christian living and educate on social justice. We offer adult classes every Sunday morning from 9:45-10:45 a.m. during the school year. All are welcome and no advance preparation is required. Guest speakers are frequently featured.
The First Friday Book Discussion Group meets on the first Friday of each month, October – May, at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew’s. All are welcome, even if only for the books you care to read. Here’s the 2017-2018 reading list.
Additional studies and groups meet during the week. Watch the Sunday bulletin, the VOICE newsletter, or visit the online calendar for details. You may also contact Sue Swing, our adult education coordinator, for further information, 414.774.0441 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In winter we present a Women’s Wellness Day to promote healthy bodies, minds, and spirits. General themes have included stress management, breast cancer awareness, healthy cooking, heart health, and resilience (focusing on mental health). Women’s Wellness Day Brochure 2017
