Adult Education

Our life of learning more of God and from each other continues on Sunday mornings during the Christian Education hour.

Classes begin offered during the Fall Semester

Inquirers Class

This seven-week class will explore the basics of Christian faith in an Anabaptist/Mennonite perspective, as well as provide an overview of the story and life of Columbus Mennonite Church.  The class is open to anyone, with a special invitation to new attenders and those considering membership at CMC.  Led by Pastor Joel Miller. Meets Sept 11 - October 30 in rm 21.

A Room with a Review

Join in an informal conversation. We may revisit the sermon, review the theme of the worship service, or just talk about current events.  There is no need to prepare - just pop in for lively discussion. Coordinated by Paul Knapke. Meets in library.

12 Step Sunday School Class

The 12 Step class will read and discuss the book “A Hunger for Healing”.  In this book, theologian J. Keith Miller shares his experience using the 12 Steps as spiritual tools, as he seeks to grow in his relationship with God, with those around him, and with himself.  Along with in-class reading and discussion, the class will view a series of interviews with members of Miller’s church as they share their experience with the Steps.  This class is for anyone seeking spiritual growth and healing.  Previous experience with then 12 Steps is not necessary. Regular attendance makes the class a little less baffling, but is also not necessary.  For more information, contact Steve Rolfe. Meets in rm 22.

Racism in the Church

This class will be led by Jim Fredal in the sanctuary, October 9 – October 30. It will focus on a set of video presentations/ workshop from Sojourner's, part of the "On Scripture" series called "Xenophobia and Racial Justice". November 6-December 18, the class will meet in rm 21 and focus on Drew Hart’s book, Trouble I've Seen: Changing the way the church views racism and will be led by Joel Miller.
