Adult Programs

The Adult Education Program at KUCC provides a safe, nurturing, and non-judgmental environment for adults to explore the life-long journey of their faith. Classes meet regularly on Sunday mornings and various evenings throughout the year. Sunday topics relate to the intersection of one’s faith with spiritual practice, the Bible, and contemporary issues. Evening classes focus on specific studies or books and meet intermittently. Discussions are always lively, respectful, and thought-provoking. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.

Sunday  Morning  times: 10:45 – 11:45

Sunday Evening times: 6:30 P M

Sunday morning and evening programs  will meet in the Adult Education classroom unless otherwise announced.

SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES

November 26, December 3, December 10-Sharing Holiday Traditions

Families observe Advent and celebrate Christmas in a myriad of different ways. Some of these ways are long-standing family traditions that are treasured & passed on for generations. Other ways are newly created, or adaptations of older traditions, to meet the needs of the current generation or family composition.

Have you considered how your family, however it is comprised, intentionally (or unintentionally) observes the holidays? Is your faith & our Christian heritage reflected in your holiday observances? How so? Are there different practices that you’ve noticed in other families that you’ve admired?

January 7-28–Gender in the World of the Bible

How did people understand gender in Biblical times? If we could understand what gender identities and gender roles were in those times, could that help us to understand the Bible and its stories better?  Looking at biblical stories through an understanding of their times can help us evaluate relevancies to us today.

During the month of January, we welcome back to KUCC Dr. Laurel Keopf Taylor, Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Eden Seminary.  She will help us better understand gender in biblical times by exploring the following topics:

• Biblical Bodies: Gender Norms and Gendered Bodies
• Working it Out: Gendered Division of Labor
• Putting on Gender: Beauty and Adornment
• Beyond Binaries: Gendering God
