Adult Faith Formation: Understanding the Word
- How can reading the Bible be more than reading words on a page? How do we understand the greater context of Scripture? During this course, we will discuss how to study Scripture and hear what God has to say to us today through a fun study of 1 Thessalonians.

Between the demands of family, work, and much more, it's difficult to find time to deepen your faith. We're here to help! Adult Faith Formation is a series of courses intended to broaden your theological understanding. Each course is a stand-alone session and attendance at previous courses is not necessary. All courses run from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Prior to the day of the course, participants are invited to email their questions about faith, church, theology, etc. to Pastor Paula at PLawhead@NLOM.org. As time allows, these questions will be incorporated specifically into the content of the teaching for the day. Questions may also be taken the day of the course. Pr. Paula prefers to teach using the questions of the people in the room so what you are learning is what you want to know.
