Educating Disciples:  Currently meeting on Sunday mornings at 8:45 AM via Zoom 

Facilitators: various members


The Heidelberg Catechism  was first published in 1563, and presents a series of questions and answers for use in teaching Reformed Christian doctrine. It has long been beloved for its pastoral warmth and clear exposition of scripture, and is one of ECO’s Confessional Standards. The Synod of Dort approved it in 1619, and it soon became the most ecumenical of the Reformed catechisms and confessions. It has been translated into many European, Asian, and African languages and is still the most influential and the most generally accepted catechism of the Reformation.


This class focuses on deep study of the Scriptures in order to approach God more intimately and to understand the unfailing grace offered to imperfect people.  We seek to learn how to live out our calling as beloved children of the one true God by pondering the lives of those who have gone before us, the "great cloud of witnesses for the faith"  (Heb 12:1).  Above all, we want to know Christ and the power of HIs resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, that we may become more like Him (Phil 3:10).

An ongoing theme in our discussions is how to live as a Christian in the world, with the challenges of the changing culture. the supportive sociable atmosphere provides a forum for classmates to share concerns, joys and needs. All are welcome anytime.

The Color of Compromise, A Right Now Media Study


Often, it has been far too easy to be shocked by horrific events and ask “why” or “when will things change” only to return to the comfort of our daily lives without doing the work necessary to understand, repent and remove the barriers to reconciliation.  As a result, individuals remain unchanged.  Our churches remain racially segregated and are largely ineffective in addressing complex racial challenges. In order for anything to change, the children of God need to heed the call for racial justice and embrace it as a Kingdom mandate.


In The Color of Compromise Video Study, Jemar Tisby takes us back to the root of this injustice in the American church, highlighting the cultural and institutional tables we have to flip in order to bring about progress between black and white people. Tisby provides a unique survey of American Christianity's racial past, revealing the concrete and chilling ways people of faith have worked against racial justice. Understanding our racial history sets the stage for solutions, but until we understand the depth of the malady we won't fully embrace the aggressive treatment it requires. Given the centuries of Christian compromise with bigotry, believers today must be prepared to tear down old structures and build up new ones. This 11 session video study provides an in-depth diagnosis for a racially divided American church and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God's people.


Engaging in this dialogue will require a humble heart and open mind.  We ask for the transforming work of the Holy Spirit to guide us on our walk toward repentance and reconciliation. 


You will receive a link to all dates for this class in a churchwide email.  This class will pause the week of Thanksgiving, the week before and after Christmas and finish the series in early January. 



As followers of Jesus we are called to live out our faith at all times and in all places: at home and at work, in our relationships and in our community. To be ready, we need our community of faith to encourage, challenge, and prepare us. This class uses conversation and study to build a community of well-equipped disciples ready to show the love of Jesus to a world that needs His grace.
