Pleasant Hill invites adults of all ages to seize numerous opportunities to deepen their faith, create friendships and a build community of compassionate Christ-followers.
ADULT CHURCH SCHOOL
Sunday mornings, 9:40-10:40 am, August – May
- Explorations (Room A104, downstairs) Teachers: Jerry Dean Weber, Dan Miller and Rich Welch. This class approaches weighty theological questions and faith issues by reading a book and engaging scripture through spirited conversation and discussion.
- Shadetree Bible Study (Room A92, downstairs) Teachers: David Ashley, Doug Langdon, Clay Keller, Laura Freese, Dick LoPresti. In the Shadetree Bible Study we are looking to see what Scripture says about controversial topics that we often avoid discussing. This class uses a question and answer format aimed at helping each of us learn from the thoughts and interpretations of each other.
- Bible Discovery (Room A102, downstairs) Teacher: Patrick Miller and Dave Huffman. This class looks at Old and New Testament books to draw current day applications that help us to use the scriptures as a sort of flashlight for our individual faith walks. We always try to take the approach of providing a “so-what?” implication and current day relevance for our readings, along with a few Paul Harvey-like “rest of the story” elements to those readings.
SEASONAL SMALL GROUPS
Short-term small group opportunities (4-8 weeks) arise periodically throughout the year. Groups will gather in church members’ homes for study, fellowship and prayer. Information about joining these groups will be available through church publications throughout the year.
THIRD THURSDAY THEOLOGY
On the third Thursday of every month (from September to May) grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair and open up your Bible as we delve into the scriptures and do some theological study. Groups explore the nature of God and Christian beliefs through the stories of God and God’s people. Third Thursday Theology, 10 am to 11:30 am in Small Fellowship Hall. Led by a lay member.
