Adult Education

 

Adult Conversation block_websiteAdult Conversations

Talk with us every Sunday at 10:05-10:55am in the basement fellowship hall.

Our Adult Conversations are your opportunity to bring your own thoughts and curiosities about faith, Biblical text, social issues, world events, and more into dialogue with a warm, intelligent, diverse group of Advent members and friends.

Our conversations focus on a wide variety of topics and are lead by staff, ministry leaders, congregants, and guests.

 

Faith Development Classes

Advent periodically offers a program for adults who wish to learn more about the Christian faith and Lutheran theology. What some churches call a “New Members Class,” we call our “Seekers Class” because no matter who we are or what our faith background, we are all seekers. We are all seekers moving through life together, learning and growing in different ways at every juncture.

The Seekers’ Class gives a broad introduction to the Bible, Lutheran theology, and Christian living. We examine the Bible and what it means for our worship, service to others, and daily lives. We look at the major themes in Lutheran theology and how Lutherans talk about God, religion, and spirituality. We learn about theological concepts such as justification, grace, the priesthood of all believers, baptism, and the bread and wine we share every Sunday during Communion. We discuss how we live as Christians in the world today and why we volunteer, advocate, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Come and learn more about following Christ, the Lutheran church, and how your faith can be fed at Advent!

If you wish to be part of a Seekers program at Advent, please contact Pastor Ann at pastordanielle@adventnyc.org.
