Adult Education

Sunday Morning Education Hour

A growing church requires growing adults. Adult education offerings at Pennington Presbyterian aim to deepen the faith, understanding, and Christian commitment of participants. We invite all adults to participate in one of our many learning opportunities. Sunday morning adult education courses meet September through May at 9:00am.

Biblical Literature and Foundations of Faith

Classes in this track are of two types: those focusing on biblical books, themes, and questions and those focusing on core beliefs and practices of the Christian faith. Each class runs from four to six weeks and meet in the Upper Room.


This class is intentionally broad in scope with a wide variety of topics. Leaders from our congregation, as well as from the community and the seminary, deliver interesting presentations and invite lively dialogue. Topics include current events, community concerns, theology, the Bible, and mission. This class meets in Heritage Hall.

Making Faith Real

Great questions can lead to great discussion and great learning. This is the premise behind Making Faith Real. The class gathers to discuss the faith questions that come from the group. A facilitator gently guides the discussion along. This class is a group of curious people, trying to figure out how to live a life of faith, and supporting each other on their respective journeys. This class meets in Room 206.

Other Education Opportunities

Shalom Women’s Bible Study

Shalom is a women’s Bible study that meets on Wednesday mornings from September through May. These women enjoy savoring the scriptures and seeking a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Prayer and fellowship round out the mornings. Visitors and new people are always welcome.

Young Adults Bible Study

The Young Adult Bible Study group meets weekly on Wednesdays from 7 to 9 pm at the home of one of the participants. This group is self led, meaning that each week a different person leads our discussion. We chose this format so that we might grow both in our bible study and leadership skills.


The church’s library has an “eclectic” selection of books, audiotapes, and videos for children and adults to borrow and enjoy. Located in the “reading nook” outside the Upper Room (children’s section) and in Upper Titus, the catalog  includes a range of biographical, inspirational, fiction, non-fiction, travel-related, religious, spiritual, life-style, and other genres. Look it over and be surprised at the breadth of material, all appropriate for a family library.
