ADULT EDUCATION

Learning Together

Adult Education provides regular opportunities to explore more about Quakerism:   Who we are?  What do we value?  What do we do?

We meet on Sundays from 9-10 AM at the Meeting House and alternate between Worship Sharing and Adult Education discussions.

Worship Sharing

"Worship Sharing focuses on a particular question and helps us to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation.  It seeks to draw us into sacred space, where we can take down our usual defenses, and encounter each other in "that which is eternal."" (Friends General Conference)

We follow Worship Sharing guidelines developed by Friends General Conference.  Click HERE to check out these guidelines! 

Discussion

 Adult Education discussion begins with viewing a QuakerSpeak video.  An online link to the video is sent to those on the AMM listserv during the preceding week. We  suggest you take a peek at the video, if possible but not necessary,  before you come.

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 meeting house 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!


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.
