Learning about Christianity and the spiritual path is a lifelong process. Naturally, understanding of scripture evolves as one matures, so that reading the same text at age 20 reveals new treasures at age 30, 40, 50, and so on. In addition to gaining wisdom through Bible study, church members find that thoughtful exploration of films, books, experiential techniques, other faith traditions, and new ideas and theories nurtures connection with God, each other, and our deeper selves. Thus our church offers a wide variety of adult education opportunities.
Coming to spiritual study and practice with the fresh openness of “beginner’s mind” is a central concept in Zen Buddhism, and that same sort of humility and lack of preconceptions is beneficial for those who seek to learn through the programs at Deerfield Community Church. You’ll find that educational gatherings are casual and friendly, with no expectation of previous experience or knowledge.
Current opportunities include:
~Sunday morning small groups after worship on all except the first Sunday of the month, from 10:15 to 11 a.m. (Scripture Seekers, Aging with Grace, and Faith and Current Events).
~Thursday Devotional Group: Meets 7 to 7:30 am for reflection and prayer.
