Adult - Life Long Learning

At 9 am while the children are in their classes, adults can go to a presentation/discussion on various topics. Speakers from the university, community and from within the church address many different kinds of issues, from Bible study and different religious practices to community happenings, life improvement tips and current events. Or if you just need some time to unwind, you can get a cup of coffee and read one of several newspapers in room 208.

FCC's Bill Urbrock, retired Professor of Religious Studies at UW Oshkosh, will lead the January 2019 Adult Ed presentations.
  • January 6 
    • On this festival Day of the Epiphany, a group of FCC players (Kay Sanders, Paula Veard, Ron Harrell, Barbara Urbrock, Pastor Nancy Taylor, and Bill Urbrock) will present a dramatic reading of Bill's original play about the Magi, It Was in the Stars. Be ready for laughter and comic surprises!

Adult Education is excited to announce that starting in February, we'll be using a 7-week series called Animate focusing on Faith (https://www.wearesparkhouse.org/store/category/286833/Animate-Faith). All are welcome to attend on Sunday mornings at 9:00, February 3 through March 17. The series involves a nominal cost of purchasing a $15 journal to help facilitate your personal journey in the series. Therefore participants need to reserve their journal, with Molly in the front office, before Thursday, January 24th. This provides ample time for purchase and delivery. We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation. If you would like to participate but cannot cover the entire $15 cost, please let Molly or Rev. Nancy know what you can contribute. We look forward to journeying with you as we explore the concepts of faith!!
