adult education

At LPPC, you will find no shortage of opportunities to explore and strengthen your faith. Our Adult Education and Faith Development Committee oversees the several groups who meet each week, but the members of each group plan and manage their own study. Many of them have been meeting for years, have very spirited, thought-provoking discussions, and always welcome newcomers. Find one that best fits into your schedule and join us!

For more information or questions, please contact Steve Chewning, Chair of the Adult Education and Faith Development Committee, through the church office at 505-867-5718. Please check the announcement page or the calendar page for updates on topic schedules.

Online Lectionary Lessons from PC (USA)

For those of you wanting to enhance your private meditation and prayer, the Presbyterian Church (USA) provides daily ecumenical lectionary lessons, one each from the Old Testament, Psalms, Gospels, and Epistles. You can read the Scriptures online or have them delivered automatically every day by e-mail from the Presbyterian Church website. If you read the lessons daily for the three year cycle, you will have made your way through the whole Bible! Whether you are familiar with all the Bible stories, or are a newcomer to Scripture, this is a great way to grow in your faith.
