“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
2 Peter 3:18
Martha's Circle is a group of United Presbyterian Women (UPW) who meet for Bible study. Rose Eller is the Circle leader. The 2016-2017 curriculum is “Who Is Jesus?” The group, open to all women, meets the first Monday of the month at 1:30 pm in the Library.
We gather together as a church family for Celebration Sundays several times throughout the year. These are intergenerational Christian Education events, with opportunities for learning appropriate for all ages. During Celebration Sundays, we focus on a particular biblical text and then engage it in a variety of mediums through stations designed for all types of learners. Come alone or bring the whole family – all are welcome!
Annual Adult Retreat
We take an annual adult retreat each April to the Fellowship Deaconry in Liberty Corner, NJ. This retreat time is set aside to enjoy peaceful surroundings and good company while deepening your faith along with others from our church family. Check the church calendar and upcoming events for more information.
A monthly gathering for adults who like reading and like talking about what we read! Books are selected by the group and cover a wide range of topics. They aren’t always explicitly Christian books, but our conversations always include thoughts about how the book relates to our faith. Our recent reads include Love That Boy by Ron Fournier and Quiet by Susan Cain. Check the Church Calendar for upcoming book club meetings, the fourth Monday of most months.
Seasonal Bible Studies
During Advent (the season before Christmas), Lent (the season before Easter) and again during the summer, we offer adult bible studies that span the course of a few weeks. These classes pepper your year with intentional bible study and offer all those involved a little extra spiritual nourishment for the different seasons of our lives.
Our next adult Bible Study will be on the Protestant Reformation, which celebrates its 500th anniversary on October 29, 2017. Join us on September 24, October 1, 9, 15, 22, and 29 for this special series, lead by Pastor Lou and Pastor Hannah.
