Kenmore Presbyterian offers an educational program for all ages. We provide Child Care for children under the age of three and Sunday School for children in Pre K through Third Grade during worship.
We welcome youth from Grade Four to Grade Twelve to participate in our Youth Group on Sundays at 6:30 p.m. Also, every other year, we offer Confirmation Class for youth in Grades Eight through Ten.
Our Adult Christian Education class, Life after Church returns on Sunday, September 17 at 11:30 a.m. in the Library. We will begin with a new study, The Protestant Reformations by Donald K. McKim. This study will provide a way for us to appreciate anew the events of five-hundred years ago and how they have impact on us today.
A part of Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding, an adult curriculum published by the Presbyterian Mission Agency, The Protestant Reformations has six sessions:
1. Reformation Backgrounds
2. Martin Luther and the Lutheran Tradition
3. John Calvin ant the Reformed Tradition
4. Anabaptism and Anglicanism
5. Dividing Theological Issues
6. Reformations Today
Why study events that happened five hundred years ago? In his introduction, Don McKim writes:
The writer William Faulkner wrote, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” In a real sense, the Protestant Reformations live on in important ways, in the world, in the church, and in the lives of those who find the Reformation heritage to bring life and nurture to their Christian faith.
