The Mission Of Adult Education At Westminster

At Westminster Presbyterian Church, we seek to nurture our members, at all stages of their faith journey, in ways that strengthen biblical, spiritual, and moral foundations and affirm what we believe as Reformed Christians. Throughout the Adult Education program, we work to cultivate an environment in which diversity is valued and different opinions are respectfully engaged.

New Class Starting
Spiritual Practices for the 21st Century
Sunday Mornings • 9:45 am
Room 208

This new Sunday school class will look at the many obstacles and pitfalls facing those seeking to live a spiritually grounded life. Through discussions of these issues, we will seek out ways to live that are balanced and healthy. The class will study Christian spiritual practices from the broader tradition and explore how they can be adapted for us today. In addition to learning about this rich tradition, we will actively engage in these practices during our time together. Led by Will Wellman
