ADULT EDUCATION

Vibrant adult education has long been a hallmark of Peachtree Christian Church. From serious bible studies to dynamic programming, we are indebted to those who have prioritized Christian education with an eye toward how faith can be lived out within a community of faith, hope, and love.

We seek to honor this legacy while thinking about best practices in our ever-evolving context. Peachtree offers educational opportunities that are edifying, enriching, and honoring of God and neighbor.

NEW CLASS: THE WHY OF WORSHIP

Sundays, beginning January 13 | 10 am | Chapel 

Join us on a quest to understand the practices of our ancient faith. For eight weeks, we will gather in the chapel between worship services to address questions like “What are we here for on Sundays?” and “What makes the worship gathering central to life as a Christian?”

RSVP: Rev. Nick Chambers | nchambers@peachtree.org 

NEW CLASS: God’s Church in Crisis: First Corinthians

Sundays 10 a.m. | February 17 – June 23 | Room 213

Paul had hardly left the fledgling congregation in Corinth when he began to receive troubling, even alarming, reports of infighting, debauchery, and snobbery.  In response to the chaos, Paul’s letter gives voice to some of our most beloved passages of Scripture.  Come join us as we enter first century Corinth to learn what it means to serve “Jesus Christ alone and Him crucified.”

NEW CLASS: DEMENTIA: LIVING IN THE MEMORIES OF GOD 

Wednesdays, beginning January 16 | 7 pm | Library | Cost: $35 

How do we care for those who are forgetting who they are? What does it mean to worship when you’ve forgotten who Jesus is? Join Rev. Wortman to examine these and many other questions relating to faith and dementia. This class will also focus on practical realities of care for those experiencing or caring for others with dementia. All are welcome—including outside guests. Cost includes book, materials, and light snacks.

RSVP: Rev. Jared Wortman | jwortman@peachtree.org

NEW CLASS: CHOOSING FAITH IN A WORLD OF WORRY

Sundays, beginning January 20 | 10 am | Class #215 

We stress over circumstances we can’t control, we talk about what’s keeping us up at night, and we wring our hands over the fate of disadvantaged people all over the world. Join Dr. Julie Dorney and Rev. Wortman to explore how to practically and faithfully address situations of worry and anxiety. All are welcome.

LENTEN CLASS: Make Space in the Desert 

Sunday, March 10      10 am   |   Room 218    

During Lent, we join and journey with Jesus in the desert for forty days. But what does this desert have to do with our city? What does our solitude have to do with our community or our fasting with our feasting? Sunday mornings at 10 am during Lent, we will learn from those who devoted their lives to this wandering way through the wilderness: the Desert Fathers and Mothers of the early Church.
