UPDATE – Adult Religious Education sessions restart Sunday, November 14 at 10 AM, in person in Westwood Hall AND online! We look forward to seeing you soon!


(Previous post follows)
Emerson’s Adult Religious Education team takes our ministry very seriously and has had an offering each Sunday throughout this pandemic. We know that you’ve come to count on this Sunday morning gathering for connection and inspiration.

And as the church becomes a multiplatform church, with offerings online and in person, Sunday adult religious education will take a brief pause for retooling. We will have no 10 AM Adult RE sessions on October 24, October 31, or November 7. 

In the meantime, we offer up this starter list of resources* you might engage with, an asynchronous opportunity to grow in mind and spirit whenever and wherever you like!

We look forward to sharing our programs with you again soon.
Your Emerson Adult Religious Education Team
