(Re)Introducing the School of Christian Living

We believe that faith deepens when we engage together in learning and discussion about who God is and how we are called to live. Starting October 3, the Deepening Faith committee and Ministry Team are excited to reintroduce an older LAUMC concept, the School of Christian Living, as a new opportunity to deepen your walk with Christ through a regular, intentional, authentic community space. You are invited to engage meaningful content, wherever you are in your faith journey.

The School of Christian Living will be held on Wednesday evenings, 6:00–8:00pm. Each evening starts with dinner together in Creekside, followed by several class options for youth and adults. Children have their own programming during class time, and those youth who are in choir may come just for dinner before or after their rehearsal time. The classes last for a session of several weeks, followed by a short break before the next session of classes begins.

Session Schedule:
October 3 – November 14
November 28 – December 19
January 9 – February 20
March 13 – April 10
May 1–29

Whether you are new to exploring your faith or a long-time practitioner, we invite you to find something of interest in the class offerings. Courses fit into the areas of theology, Bible, practical application, and a survey class for drop-in participation. Some courses will have no homework and no prerequisites, others will involve some homework, while a few will be part of a series and require that you have taken an earlier class in the series before participating.

Dinner costs $10 for adults and $5 for children, or $25 per family. Please register for the classes/dates that interest you so that the organizers may get a total head count for dinner and plan the room size for each class. Check out the schedule for the first session and register online, or look for course catalogs and paper registration cards at church.
