Adult Education

As members of faith, we respond to God's call through the Holy Spirit to be connected to each other, the church, and the world so that our lives proclaim with joy that Jesus Christ is Lord!

Adult Sunday School:

Weekly from 9:00am - 10:00am



Facilitators: Diane & Jerry Marks and Dennis Crawshaw

Where: Room 25

This class chooses short-term DVD- based studies that lend themselves to lots of vibrant discussion, and the ability to jump into the class at any time. This fall, the JOY class will begin with Adam Hamilton's study:

HALF TRUTHS. God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say

They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We've all heard these words. Maybe we've said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join Adam Hamilton in searching for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés to the message and ministry of Jesus.


Christian Conversations

Facilitator: Sue Monteith

Where: Adult Library

This class studies contemporary writings about the Christian faith. They will begin the season with Short Stories by Jesus by eminent Bible scholar Amy-Jill Levine. Levine explores Jesus' most popular parables, revealing hidden depths, exposing their misinterpretations, and showing how they can still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.

This fall, Ms. Levine will be lecturing as part of the York Lecture Series at Knox Presbyterian Church.


Building Block Parents

Facilitators: Leah & Craig Jacob, Jen & Tim Lessek

Where: Room 22/23

This fall, all parents are invited to study 100 Things Every Child Should Know before Confirmation by Presbyterian Pastor Rebecca Kirkpatrick. This resource explores the essential topics that children growing up in the church should learn about, including key Bible stories, church history, the sacraments and creeds, and world religions. Class conversation will focus on reviewing these faith topics and integrating them into our children's overall Christian education at church and home.


Lectionary Learnings

Facilitator: Pastor Kevin Stainton

The lectionary is a three year cycle of Biblical texts from which we, and many other churches, preach each week. Gather together with Pastor Stainton and others to dig into the same text you'll be hearing about in worship. This class provides an opportunity to go deeper and learn what questions to ask of the text.

Inquirer’s Class

This three week class is designed for those who are interested in learning more about Heritage Church and would like to consider membership.  The series is repeated throughout the year. Contact the church office for scheduled dates and locations.

Horizons Bible Study: Who is Jesus?

By Judy Yates Skier

Our study this year centers on "Who is Jesus?". Each of the study's nine lessons explores the question "Who is Jesus?" through a particular theological lens. The author explores the answers to the question through the lenses of Mark, Matthew, Luke, John, Paul, Hebrews, the non-canonical gospels, the Abrahamic Faiths, and contemporary cultural interpretations. She notes that each of us who reads the New Testament is an interpreter of the text, and that how we interpret depends in part on who we are.

Women of HPC - All are invited to join our Bible Study. See Eileen Mount or Sandy Baxter for more info. We look forward to a thoughtful and insightful study time.

Hope Circle

Meets Monthly on the Second Wednesday (September - May)

sabbathSabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives

by Wayne Muller

Millennia ago, the tradition of Sabbath created an oasis of sacred time within a life of unceasing labor. Now, in a book that can heal our harried lives, Wayne Muller, author of the spiritual classic How, Then, Shall We Live?, shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight, and renewal–a refuge for our souls.

We need not even schedule an entire day each week. Sabbath time can be a Sabbath afternoon, a Sabbath hour, a Sabbath walk. With wonderful stories, poems, and suggestions for practice, Muller teaches us how we can use this time of sacred rest to refresh our bodies and minds, restore our creativity, and regain our birthright of inner happiness.


Every Woman is welcome to join us as we study and practice Sabbath. Please purchase the book prior to our first meeting, It can be found on Amazon.
