Classes/Activities for Adults

The Protestant Reformation:

An Historial View of the Movement That Changed the World

Leaders: Dr. Garrett McAinsh and Steve Hancock
Location: Second Hall

The Protestant Reformation is one of the most studied events of the Western world. Scholars from various disciplines have written on the events of the period from the sixteenth to mid-seventeenth century, a range of time in which momentous events took place. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Garett McAinsh, Harold and Lucy Cabe Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at Hendrix College, to take us back to the actions of Martin Luther who published his Ninety-five Theses on October 31, 1517—an event commonly considered as the trigger of a reformation that changed the face of Europe and the rest of the world. During the first two sessions of this class Dr. McAinsh will take participants on a journey through Germany at the time of the Reformation that will enhance our understandings of the issues and complexities of what transpired when challenges to the Roman Catholic Church changed the entire religious landscape.

In the final session Steve Hancock, Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, will lead participants in exploring our Presbyterian roots. This session will focus on the history, events and theological issues from the reformation era that led to the growth and development of the Presbyterian church.

A Financial Fitness Workshop for Young Adults

Leaders: Laura Cook and Jim Wilkins
Location: Room 65/66

  • Do you have healthy money habits?
  • Do you have credit card debt?
  • Does your cost of living interfere with saving?
  • Would you like to get help with managing your money better?

Be a part of a practical hands-on financial principles workshop that will help you assess where you are, set goals and plan for the future.

Drawing on their own years of experience and the work of Nathan Dungan, an industry taught-leader on helping people link their money decisions to their values, Jim Wilkins and Laura Cook will lead us through this time of education, exploration and assessment. The cost of materials for the workshop is $10.

This class will be four sessions and will meet every Wednesday in September with childcare available for each session. Attendance at all sessions is encouraged; however, if that is not possible, attending fewer sessions will also be beneficial.
