Adult education takes a variety of forms here, and covers a surprisingly wide range of topics at 9:30-10:15 am. There are regular Bible Study series led by the pastors, usually Thursdays, and on Sunday there are forums led by pastors, local leaders, and congregation members. Social justice and advocacy are often components. Attendees have had the opportunity to learn about everything from foreign mission experiences to Habitat for Humanity, prison reform, and transgender experiences.
Sundays at 9:30 am
Centering Prayer is a contemporary name for the practice that Jesus refers to as “prayer in secret” in the Sermon on the Mount. It responds to the invitation in Psalm 46:10, which reads “Be still and know that I am God.” It is a practice of simply opening oneself to God, consenting to his presence and the transformation process. With no direct cause and effect, its sole purpose is to deepen one’s relationship with God. What happens is not in our control nor our motive for practicing Centering Prayer. If you have questions, Ron and Judy invite you to come to the class to ask them. Contact Lucy Gibson 608-221-3258. We meet at 9:30 am during the school year and 8:30 am during the summer in the original building, upstairs 6th grade room.

November 19: LELC Racial Justice Coalition
White Role Models: What white people in your life have inspired or driven you to feel you want to be anti-racist? Some have done the right thing, inspiring you to follow in their footsteps. Some have done the wrong thing, making you conscious of what you don’t want to do. We will share stories of white people who have done their best to fight racism in various circumstances; white people who have been converted from racism; and our personal stories of our own white role models.
