ACTIVE FOLLOWERS

Adult Christian Education at HPPC

Growing

We at Hamblen believe that growing as an active follower of Jesus is a rewarding, life-long process.

The broad theological umbrella at Hamblen allows for participants of both conservative and progressive backgrounds to have a voice and a place in shared study. 

 

We offer a variety of forums and classes on Sunday mornings and throughout the week

that inspire and equip adults for lives of active service. 

 

WE NEED GOD AND WE NEED EACH OTHER!

 

After more than a year apart because of COVID, these groups offer a chance to come together again, grow as disciples of Jesus, and build back our sense of community. If you have questions about any of the groups listed here, contact Heather Notske at heathern@hamblenpres.org or 509-385-0627.

 

Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Meets Wednesdays at 9:30 AM in the Skylight Room
 

Advent Bible Study (December 1, 8, 15, 22)
Light Each Candle: Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love in the Book of Isaiah


As we wait for the birth of Jesus and look forward to his return, we light the Advent candles. We remember the hope, peace, joy, and love God gives us in Jesus. During Advent, Wednesday morning Bible study will look at messages of hope, peace, joy, and love in the book of Isaiah. Join us at 9:30 AM in the Skylight Room.

Winter Bible Study (January 5, 12, 19, 26; February 2, 9, 16, 23)
Boundless Grace at the Boundaries: Jesus’ Mission on the Margins in the Gospel of Luke


Throughout the gospel of Luke we see Jesus teaching, healing, and serving those his society cast aside and ignored. Folks on the margins became bearers of Jesus’ reign as they embraced his truth and forgiveness. This winter we’ll go to the margins with Jesus and explore ways God is calling and sending us to unexpected people and places. Join us Wednesday mornings at 9:30 AM in the Skylight Room.
