Academy for Life & Faith

2018 Series of classes sure to stimulate thought, discussion and action.

The Adult Education Committee is pleased to present this month's selection of the Saint Andrew Adult Education Series. The series brings classes ranging from environmental topics, to social issues, to scriptural and theological studies. Each series is led by speakers who are experts in their field and have a passion to share with us as we continue the challenge to 'seek God, create community, and practice justice.'

We would like to extend a big thank you to the members of the 2019 Adult Education Committee:
Marcia Manter, chair, Mark Dugan, Julie Broski, Brian Cline, Chuck Pickrel, Mark Harmon, & Denise Dugan.
