Christian Education for Adults
At Lakewood Presbyterian Church, we are always learning and growing in our faith, just as our lives are always changing. Educational opportunities for adults include Sunday School classes, mid-week Bible study and special educational series, such as faith and film, spiritual gifts, Lenten studies and Living the Questions.
NEW! A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Religion
Join Pastor Joy in Benz Hall on Sunday mornings following the 10 a.m. church service for an indepth discussion of various religions and explores how people relate to and understand the spiritual realm and the Divine. The course will help clarify our own religious distinctives while gaining a deeper understanding of others’ religious beliefs, experiences, and practices various religions so that we may have a broad understanding on how different religious communities can work together through religious tolerance with a common goal of a better tomorrow.
Course Resources will be provided.

Bible Discovery Class
Bible Discovery uses the International Sunday school lesson series as the background for weekly study.

Class begins each Sunday at 8:45 a.m. in the Coleman Room in Benz Hall
Leader: Jim Robinson.
This adult study class uses short-term curriculum that usually lasts 6-13 weeks to learn about God’s grace and purpose for us in scripture and in our lives today. We welcome all ages to join us for a look at both Old and New Testament studies with thought-provoking questions and interactive discussion.

Women's Thursday Night Bible Study
Our fall Thursday Night Bible Study group will begin on September 6. The subject for this seven week study will be “Job, A Story of An Unlikely Joy” by Lisa Harper. The class is held at the home of a group member from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and dinner is served prior to each week’s lesson. This is a wonderful time to dig deeper into God’s word and enjoy fellowship with other women. The study is not limited to LPC members, so invite a friend or neighbor. Please contact the church office at 733-8055 to if you would be interested in joining the fall study.
Occasionally, LPC offers special adult studies which revolve around a theme or season in the church calendar. Past studies have included: Living the Questions, Sabbath Connections, Mayberry Bible Study, and several Lenten and Advent discussions at our Wednesday Night Dinners.
