Adult Education

Adult Spiritual Formation and Education

Throughout the year various classes are offered on Sunday morning after worship.

September 19 and 26
Jeff Eaton will lead a 2-week class on our Church Mission Statement.  The subject of the class will be presented in two sessions.  The first will review the Mission Statement and discuss the purpose of a congregational Mission Statement and the difference between a Mission Statement and a Creed of the Church.  The second session will focus on the identification of OHPC as a "progressive Christian congregation" and the approach of Progressive Christianity to the Christian faith and the life of the church.

October 10
Author, Jeannie Gainsburg will lead a workshop on LGBTQ+ Etiquette and Common Bloopers. Jeannie will join us via a Zoom link.  It is our current plan for attendees to gather in person at the church.  A Zoom link will be provided for those who choose not to meet in person.  (Final meeting details will be provided later).

The Workshop: LGBTQ+ terms and identities are constantly changing.  It is difficult to keep up.  Many people feel intimidated by all the changers and are silenced by the fear that they will accidently say something that will offend someone.  This works shop helps relieve this anxiety by offering easy respectful language tips and suggestions for how to mess up properly.

Participants will leave with a list of the most common LGBTQ+ etiquette bloopers, better language suggestions, best practice communication tips, and an increased confidence in their ability to have respectful interactions with and about LGBTQ+ people.  Allies can create safer spaces with their language and this workshop shows them how.
