Adult Education

Parent Discussion Group
Sundays at 9:45 a.m. Sanctuary
This fall we kicked off a new laid back discussion group specifically for parents. The class discusses the same themes and spiritual practices that preschool and elementary kids will be learning about in their classes, though discussions will be free-flowing. This fall those themes/practices are Follow Jesus, Welcome All, and Confess. This class will circle up in the sanctuary to start the morning and then remain when the children head off to their classrooms. Come give it a try!

Inquirers Class
Dates: October 9, 23, 30 and November 6

Have you been attending University Presbyterian Church as a visitor? Have you wondered what it means to be a Presbyterian… or to join UPC? Do you want to learn more about UPC and meet other visitors and UPC members? If so, then come join the Inquirers Class!!
The Inquirers Class will meet for four Sundays starting in October. Attendees will hear about Presbyterianism and specifically about University Presbyterian Church. The co-pastors, session members, elders and UPC members will discuss what UPC offers in Mission and Peacemaking, Christian Education, Nurture, Campus Ministry, and Fellowship. During the class we will share our backgrounds, experiences, faith journeys, expectations, and what brought us to UPC. There will be time to get to know each other, to have your questions answered, and to meet with the session should visitors decide to join UPC.
