May Adult Learning Opportunities
"Fearless Dialogues: What's Next?" - Sunday, May 1
In the Brotherhood Room, led by Jill Lum
 For six weeks in February and March, more than ninety Centralites took part in one or more "Fearless Dialogues" sessions. New members, old timers, youth, parents, experiential learners, William James scholars, those who run from "small groups" and those who don't. There was a lot of honesty, energy and hope. The Learning Ministry has suggested that Fearless Dialogues be the basis for Winter Studies 2017. On May 1, please join us to reflect on our experience and consider the future. Whether you attended the February/March sessions or not. Whether you find yourself at the center of life at Central, view things from the balcony or feel at the margins, we hope to see you!
"Thinking Theologically and Hard Decisions" - Sundays, May 8, 15, 22
In the Brotherhood Room, led by Lee Carroll
We all face hard decisions, both as individuals and as members of a congregation or other groups. But what resources do we use? Join us for this 3-week seminar as we introduce one helpful model for theological refection and apply it to case studies from Central Church and the larger culture.
"The Embers and the Stars" - Sundays, May 1, 8, 15, 22
Oglesby Building, led by members of the class
The Issues In Theology Class will continue their discussion of the book, “The Embers and the Stars,” by Erazim Kohak. This class meets in a room off the atrium of the Oglesby Building. Michael Lloyd is the convener for this class, and various class members lead the discussion on different Sundays.
Adult Classes


At Central, we believe that Christian education is a lifelong journey. In addition to gathering for worship, adults are encouraged to participate in classes on Sunday mornings.



Classes are offered every Sunday at 9:45 a.m. with a variety of topics from Bible study, to current issues, to theological questions. Ongoing adult classes with rotating leadership provide learning and fellowship opportunities. 

Special studies are also offered throughout the year.  Each January Central's adult classes meet together for Winter Studies and during the summer months for Summer Series to focus on a specific topic.
