Bridge Builders. Servant Leaders.
Palms Adult Education Ministry Team recognizes that we all are in different places in our faith journey. Whether you are just starting to ask questions and seek to understand, or if you are a self-professed Bible study fanatic, we provide opportunities for your continued growth. Jesus’ disciples sat at his feet learning about the life of faith.
This foundation enabled them to live their faith as they were sent out to serve God’s mission in the world. Through group studies on Sunday mornings and throughout the week, we also seek to learn from Jesus and one another about who we are and how we are to live as Christ’s disciples. We want to create safe space to discuss difficult issues of faith and doubt, to encourage one another in our journeys, and to be nurtured by the grace of Jesus Christ.

Parents long to give their children a strong moral foundation rooted in God through Jesus, a sense of connection, belonging, and purpose. This book shows you how to do it simply, adding depth and meaning to existing family traditions as well as information about basic Christian practices to nurture and enrich children's faith at home.

SACK LUNCH THEOLOGY
1st & 3rd THURSDAYS @ 12 PM, RM203
Join us as we just started a NEW book, Wisdom's Wonder: Character, Creation, and Crisis in the Bible's Wisdom Literature by William P. Brown. An extensive revision and expansion of Brown's Character in Crisis (Eerdmans, 1996), this book demonstrates that the wisdom books are much more than simply advice literature. With wonder as the foundation for understanding, Brown maintains that wisdom is a process with transformation of the self as the goal. Bring a lunch! Need a book? CLICK HERE
