Six Weeks on Money Digital Course

In this course, you will learn more about what is important to you and your core values, which are the basis for making healthy financial decisions. Save more, eliminate debt, and live generously. 

You’ll learn how to create a system of abundance that makes saving money easy. This creates a mindset of abundance and will help you make progress on important goals in your life.

Register today for the digital course you do on your own time (about an hour a week). Use the code salemwest40 for the special rate of $40. Then join our weekly small group discussion hosted at Westminster beginning April 18. Sign up for that here

A year-long study of the New Testament:

Have you set a Bible study goal but feel a little overwhelmed?  To encourage you, below is a study plan that will get you through the entire New Testament in one year.  We have some excellent resources on the Adult Ed book cart in the library that can amplify your Bible study. Some books highlight a specific book of the Bible, say Hebrews; some tackle a collection of books like the Pastoral Epistles.  

             

                 Browse book titles related to specific books of the Bible

                 Browse book titles related to Biblical topics

The best hours to access the library are from 8:30-11:00 am and 2:00 -4:00 pm on weekdays.   We encourage you to browse the study resources, and cheer you on in your continuing study!

OVERVIEW OF ADULT EDUCATION EVENTS

 

SEPTEMBER—MAY: 

We offer monthly or semi-monthly presentations called SOARs (Sunday Opportunities for Adult Renewal). These sessions take place on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM. They encompass a wide range of topics including biblical studies, church history, current issues, other religions, and missions. The presentations draw on expertise from Westminster members as well as guest speakers from the community.

 

OCTOBER:

FALL FRENZY kicks off the new school year for the adults in the congregation. It’s a 3-week Sunday evening event of small group studies or a larger educational session. This format allows for a more in-depth exploration of a topic, as well as more personal interaction with the material and other church members. See above for information on this year's events. 

 

JANUARY:

THE SATURDAY EXPERIENCE is a half-day mini-retreat focusing on the importance of experiencing and practicing something to learn it well. This retreat generally offers a whole-person educational opportunity with an emphasis on Christian spirituality.

 

FEBRUARY/MARCH:

LENTEN EXPLOSION is the spring’s three-week version of Fall Frenzy, to bring us into the season of Lent.
