“God gave us brains, and God expects that we use them.” Or so the saying goes. We believe that faith is an exercise of the mind, as well as the heart. Christian Education opportunities at The Table are safe places of exploration. Our Core Values of “Progressive and Journey-Focused” and “Passionate Spirituality” are immediately recognized. Learning opportunities for children, youth, and adults involve open, intelligent dialogue and conversation of the nuance, complexity, and mystery of the faith we boldly proclaim. After all, as our minister often reminds us, the Greatest Commandments include “Love the Lord your God with all of your mind” as well! (Luke 10:27)
Our Sunday School classes begin each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. If you’re running a little bit late though, don’t fret. Our adults don’t really get going until closer to 10:00 a.m. as it is hard to leave the coffee and conversation!
Children and Youth classes meet in the basement of the education wing (just off the Fellowship Hall). Our children and youth teachers work diligently to provide a learning experience that is experiential; for children, prayer and play are closely intertwined.
A Sunday School opportunity for adults is held on the main floor of the education wing in the Oakes Board Room. This learning experience involves fearless conversation with one another and God- participants have bold conversations. Resources such the Wired Word series spark our discussion, which looks at news items from the past few weeks from a theological perspective. ALL voices and listening hearts are welcome in this learning environment.
