Adult Education

Adult Education provides regular opportunities to explore more about Quakerism: who we are, what we value, and what we do!

Join us at 9:00 Sunday mornings. We alternate between Worship Sharing and Adult Education discussions. The Adult Education discussion begins with viewing a QuakerSpeak video. An online link to the video is sent to the listserv during the week. We suggest you take a peek at the video, if possible but not necessary, before you come.   If you are not on the AMM listserv, you may request to be added by sending an email with your name/email address to: abqquaker@gmail.com.

THEME FOR  SEPTEMBER

SEPTEMBER:  Our theme for September is the Intermountain Yearly Meeting’s Minute on Climate Change

QUAKERISM 101 CLASS (September 29-November 10, 2019)

Would you like to learn more about Quaker faith and practice?  Are you new to Friends?  Interested in becoming a Friend?  Wondering what this “Religious Society of Friends” thing is all about?

Come join us for a seven-week course of discovery that will take place on Sunday mornings at the meetinghouse from 9:00-10:15 from September 29 to November 10 (seven Sundays).  CHILD CARE will be provided if you need it – but please sign up soon!

We will cover the basics… roughly the following topics:
(1) History: How We Got Here
(2) How We Worship
(3) Doing Business
(4) Joining, Becoming, and Being the Meeting
(5) The Challenge of Living as a Friend (Testimonies part 1)
(6) The Challenge of Living as a Friend (Testimonies part 2)
(7) Wrap Up & Celebration

These are short sessions, so yes, there will be homework! – readings and a few questions to consider before coming to each session.  Come prepared! However the only required text will be our Intermountain Yearly Meeting (IMYM) Faith & Practice – and that will be available for loan or purchase if you’d like a copy.

What are you waiting for?  To sign up, please send the following to robpierson0@gmail.com:
(1) Your Name:
(2) Contact Info (i.e., email address, etc):
(3) Do you need child care (yes / no):
(4) Do you need a copy of the IMYM Faith & Practice (yes / no):
(5) Can you attend all (or almost all) of the seven sessions (yes / no):

There will also be a sign-up sheet posted on the meetinghouse bulletin board.  Please sign up by September 8.
