The Adult Forum meets on Sunday mornings before the church service. Our discussions generally focus on a book we are reading, such as ‘Help, Thanks, Wow’ by Ann Lamont, or DVD lessons we are following, such as a dramatization of John Wesley’s life and ministry.  Our discussions are generally lively and sometimes deep. We like to use DVD-based presentations as a basis for discussion, including past studies with Adam Hamilton and John Dominic Crossan.

  • Current Study
  • Spring 2016
     
    At 9:30 on Sunday mornings, we are studying a book called “Jesus Rode a Donkey” by Linda Seger;  focusing on the poor, the needy, widows, and orphans; March chapter is “Beautiful Savior:  King of Creation”. 
     
    The next book the class will be reading is by Jefferson Bethke, “It’s Not What You Think: Why Christianity is So Much More than Going to Heaven When You Die.”  
     
    The class will be ending in mid-June along with the Sunday School calendar.

     

  • Past Studies
  • Embracing Spiritual Awakening

    This DVD series featuring Diana Butler Bass includes sessions about “Waking Up,” “Believing,” “Behaving,” “Belonging,” and “Awakening.” In the series, we explored what it means to be part of a “Spiritual Awakening” and what Christianity may look like outside of the church.

    Help, Thanks, Wow by Anne Lamont


    This study focused on essential prayers and how to get into the habit of prayer. The book served as a practical guide to prayer and led to discussions on current and future praying practices.

    Storytelling with Tex Sample


    Tex Sample is a great storyteller, lecturer, and consultant. His DVD story segments were used to learn both theological/moral content and story telling methods. Members of CC-Troy, and especially those on a worship planning team, are always looking for engaging ways to tell both stories from the Bible and stories from our own faith journeys.
