Adult Education Report Annual Meeting 2004
Prepared by Jerry Kincaid
2003 - The Adult Education program offered two classes this year. A Sunday morning class was offered for anyone wishing to increase their knowledge of the Orthodox Faith. Jerry Kincaid and Deacon Andrew Werbiansky taught this class. We discussed liturgical theology with an emphasis on commentaries by the Fathers on the Eucharist and the Divine Liturgy. We averaged 5-9 adults weekly. Fr. Andrew offered a Wednesday evening course. The Wednesday evening course was a more advanced Bible study utilizing the Orthodox Study Bible with its commentaries. This class averaged 3-7 adults weekly.
2004 - As we look forward into 2004, I pray that more adults will participate in both courses, as their schedules allow. Deacon Andrew and I recently visited Holy Dormition Monastery in Rives Junction, Michigan. The result is that we may possibly plan a weekend adult retreat in the near future. Also, an adult vacation Bible school during the summer can be offered to coincide with the younger children’s program.
