Adult Faith Formation

Christian life is a pilgrimage, a journey we undertake strengthened by God’s presence with us. The destination we seek is wholeness and maturity in Christ.

Adult education at The Brick Church includes a number of primary opportunities for study and reflection. Members and friends participate in weekly Women’s and Men’s Bible studies, with Coed and Summer Bible Study offered intermittently. Sunday Adult Education consists of Lecture Series arranged by the Adult Education Committee of Session. Other special events, such as guest speaker visits and retreats are scheduled periodically. All are welcome to join in this journey of faith. Members also are invited to read Scripture on Sundays.

Paul Tillich’s Eight Pillars of Christianity

What is Christianity for you? A religion? Jesus’ Way? A group of fellow seekers reflecting the Holy Spirit? Something else? For Paul Tillich, one of the two great theologians of the 20th Century, Christianity rests on eight pillars. Brick Church member Tom Robinson explores the basics of Christianity for Tillich with related Bible stories, Scripture, and Bible passages provided by Brick Church members. Come and learn about Paul Tillich’s Eight Pillars of Christianity and see how your thinking matches Tillich’s. You can also see how Tillich’s concepts from the middle of the last century are reflected in this century in the favorite Bible passages of our Brick Church members.
