Adults

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 Brick 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.
 
Please contact Jeff Shayne to learn more about any of these activities, or to obtain Zoom meeting information during the COVID 19 pandemic.  Recordings of Sunday Morning Lectures are posted online through the link on this page. 
 

Wednesday Worship Connections 

During the COVID 19 pandemic, we are unable to participate in our Wednesday evening public worship.  In its place, we will offer other opportunities for mid-week contemplation and devotion.

Summer Scripture Series

This summer, we are offering a “Summer Scripture Series.” Each Wednesday, we publish a set of passages on Biblical topics with suggested key considerations for reading and meditating on the scriptures. We hope this will help members to feel connected to Brick during this unusual summer. More importantly, reading and meditating on these texts can deepen one’s knowledge of the Bible and add to an understanding of Worship.
 
If you would like to participate and do not have a Holy Bible in the New Revised Standard Version, the church will provide one to you. Please contact Linda Thompson for a bible. If you have a question about the scripture passages, please email Rev. Adam Gorman. We hope all will enjoy this offering from The Brick Church!
 

As an introducation to this Series, we contemplate the attributes of God.  The many attributes of God are probably well-known to you:  loving (I John 4:16), merciful and gracious (Psalms 86:15), forgiving (I John1:9), faithful (I Corinthians 1:9), righteous and just (Jeremiah 9:24), ubiquitous (Psalms 139), unchangeable (Malachi 3:6), all-knowing (Hebrews 4:12-13), and mysterious (Deuteronomy 29:29).  But the Bible actually adds a second form of revelation: describing God’s activity and showing His involvement through narrative.  Please enjoy your study as you come to know God better through the scriptures.

Theology Meets COVID – 19

Tillich’s Theological Tools at the Existential Interface

The Christian Education Committee has released the full set of recordings of Theology and COVID – 19 with a new introduction! This fascinating educational series from Dr. Tom Robinson has drawn more than 120 views. Dr. Robinson describes how to use the theological tools suggested by three of Paul Tillich’s sermons to deal with the challenges facing us today, starting with COVID-19. Please join us in exploring Tillich’s Theological Tools at The Existential Interface. Each part is about 20 minutes long and stands on its own. However, the series is best seen sequentially:
