Adult Sunday School

2016 Winter & Spring Lenten Small Groups

All groups meet Sundays between services, from 10-10:50 a.m., unless otherwise noted.

Lenten Small Groups: Into the Wilderness

During the Lenten Season at Emmaus we invite all of our adults to participate in a Lenten Small Group. As of 2.14.16 all of the groups are formed. However, we leave one group “Open” so that anyone who wants to participate or just find out what these groups are all about, has a way to do so.

You are welcome to head to the Auditorium which is located just at the bottom or our main stairs at 10 o’clock on any Lenten Sunday and join this wonderful group of people, lead by Bruce Olson, as they work their way through a lesson. The lessons have been prepared by Pastor Abe and directly tie into each week’s sermon. Please stop by the office if you have any questions.

A Time of Prayer

We pray for each other and for the needs in our own lives, and in the congregation, community, state, nation, and world. We pray aloud. We pray in silence. We listen to each other and to the Holy Spirit. We learn because we listen.

Facilitator: Members of the Emmaus Prayer Ministry

Coffee Time

You are welcome to linger in the Narthex outside of the Sanctuary each Sunday between 9 and 10 for a cup of coffee. You may also find some folks around the kitchen table downstairs and you are welcome to visit either place.

 

Adult Sunday School Covenant

  • We believe the Adult Sunday School class is a small group of the church. The goal of Adult Sunday School classes are to learn together, to better know Jesus and to follow him more faithfully.
  • We understand  Adult Sunday School to be a participatory learning experience. All who attend Adult Sunday School classes have a similar opportunity to be heard.
  • We will listen to the class facilitator and other class participants with respect. We will look towards and be open to understanding various perspectives of others
  • We will pray with and for others in our Adult Sunday School classes.
