All of our Sunday morning adult education classes meet from 9:45 to 10:30, between our 8:30 and 11:00 worship services. Some classes run every week throughout the year and others for a period of weeks. Everyone is welcome to join any class any week; there is no long-term commitment required.

In the past year, there have been dramatic and significant events in the news. As people of faith we are called to be engaged in the world and reflect upon everyday events by pondering what Scripture has to say to such matters, and at DPC we have a weekly opportunity to do just that. We call it Good News and the Other News as a way of reminding us how Scripture still speaks to all that happens in our lives. Each week, a new topic is discussed based upon what is happening in the news and giving opportunity to reflect upon those events from the perspective of faith.
Led by the pastors.
The book of Hebrews is among the more mysterious books of the New Testament. We have very little clue as to who wrote it, and even though it’s tucked in among letters, closer inspection reveals that it’s not really a letter at all—in fact, it’s much more like a sermon. While many books of the New Testament concern themselves with the goings‐on of a particular church or community of disciples, the book of Hebrews focuses squarely on the task of understanding the person and work of the one we call the Christ. Where did he come from? What did he accomplish? How does he fit within and fulfill the history of Israel, God’s chosen people? These and many more questions are tackled in this dense but inspiring text. Join us as we discuss it together.
Led by Dick Cornelius and Margaret Thoresen.
