FMC Adult Christian EducationImmigrantsAmongUs

Adult education classes are conducted during the school year, Sept.-May.  Everyone is welcome!

– Leslie Minkler, Adult Education Coordinator

On February 10th, we will begin reading Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer who is a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. Forced to move west, the Potawatomi are originally from the Great Lakes area.
Kimmerer is also a botanist who brings both a scientific and an indigenous knowledge of the natural world to her writing. She “show(s) that the awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world.” This book travels through the seasons giving us insights into the natural world and our influence on it and its influence on us. Also, it is a joy to read so I hope to see you in class! 
– During Lent, Greg Renstrom will lead us in studying Psalms relevant to the Lenten season. We will meet Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at the church. This session will begin on March 13th.
