Adult Sunday School Offerings
Learning for Life, Growing in Faith, Spreading the Light

The following classes meet most Sundays from 10:10-11:05 a.m. with the exception of the summer. Feel free to try one or all of the classes – they lend themselves to dropping in and out as your schedule allows! 

Parents in Community:  is a class for people with children living in the home and meets in Dining Room A of the Parish and Community Life Center (PCLC).  This class explores a variety of topics that have included Parenting, The Soul of a Child, and Money and Emotions.  Regular fellowship times are also incorporated in to this class.  

Rector’s Forum: is open to adults of all ages and meets in Dining Room B of the PCLC.  This class is led by our Rector, Ned Morris, and includes exploration/discussion of the Theology, Polity and History of the Episcopal Faith. No matter what the topic, come prepared to be engaged. 

Gleaners Class which meets in the Undercroft in Pendleton (directly below the sanctuary) is also open to adults of all ages. (GLEANERS MEETS DURING THE SUMMER from 9:00-10:15 a.m.) This ever-growing class is facilitated by Roland Doepner and Agnes Martin and examines the weekly Bible Challenge and Lectionary readings using Art, Music and Drama. Most Sundays you will find something yummy to eat!  

Please monitor our publications, the Parish Paper and the Bell Ringer, for updates about class offerings and schedule changes.

Bible and Book Studies at the Advent

Learning for Life, Growing in Faith, Spreading the Light

Study of Holy Scripture is foundational to our faith as Christians. Seventy percent of the Book of Common Prayer comes directly from the Bible. At the Advent, we offer a variety of Bible and book studies to accommodate our parishioners’ interests and schedules. If you have any questions about these studies, please contact the Associate Rector for Christian Formation, The Rev. Debbie Apoldo, at dapoldo@churchofadvent.org or 864-504-3685.

TUESDAYS 12:15-1:10pm /BOOK and BROWN BAG/ PCLC DINING ROOM C
The Rev. Ned Morris facilitates these discussions in Dining Room C of the Parish and Community Life Center (PCLC). This book study is perfect for people who work and can enjoy study and conversation during their lunch break. Beginning October 3, we will be discussing Where Do We Go From Here by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The books are $11 and are available in Libby Adamson's office. Please contact Libby Adamson at 864-504-3696 or ladamson@churchofadvent.org if you would like to make arrangements to pick up your copy, and bring exact change if you are paying with cash.

The Men's Fellowship and Bible Study Group meets with Dave Rodrick on Thursday mornings at 7am in PCLC Dining Room C.

It’s the kind of conversation you can easily join, whether or not you’ve had a chance to read the text. For additional information, please contact Dave Rodrick at darodrick@gmail.com.
