Adult Learning Opportunities

Growing in faith means deepening our relationship with God, with one another, in biblical knowledge, and in our hearts. Our Christian Education programs offer a variety of opportunities to come together and share our struggles and successes along life's journey, for children, youth and adults. 


Book Clubs are seasonal groups typically meeting in Advent, Lent, and the summer months. Groups are usually held at St. Paul before or after worship service, and sometimes mid-week. A book relavant to the season is chosen for each discussion. For more information call the church office at 847.381.0460. 


Disciple Bible Study is a 32 week class of in-depth study of The Bible, and classroom learning that requires the participants to make a commitment to their own spiritual growth, as well as to the growth of others. The class is not a commitment a person makes lightly, but it is one that offers new life to all those who make that commitment seriously!

 

TED Talks are a summer activity to view a 15-minute TED Talk and then spend an hour discussing the ideas the talk generates. TED is a nonprofit group that brings together leaders from the technology, entertainment and design industries, as well as the humanities. All adults of St. Paul and their friends are invited. For more information call the church office at 847.381.0460. 

Children and Youth at St. Paul

Sunday School meets every Sunday during worship for ages four through 5th grade. Children begin in the worship service and participate in a special Children’s Time message. After Children’s Time, they are dismissed with their teachers to the education hour for an enhanced learning experience using multiple intelligence learning curriculum. 


Nursery Care is available for children through 3 years of age. Children are welcomed into the nursery anytime after 9:15 A.M. 


Vacation Bible School is a one-week opportunity for children to learn about our wonderful God. VBS also supports various mission projects.

 

Confirmation is available for 8th graders to prepare for membership at St. Paul and the wider body of Christ.

 

One Morning in Bethlehem is a half-day program on the second Saturday in December that teaches children the symbols and meaning of Christmas through games, stories, cooking, singing, and crafts. 


Youth Group meets in the Christian Education Wing at the start of worship service and is for youth ages 6th-12th grade. Youth share discussions about faith and learn how to put faith in action. They participate in several mission activities throughout the year, such as The 30-Hour Famine Project and World Vision mission support.
