Program for Adult Christian Education

PACE is designed to address the life long learning needs of the Hope congregation and the community it serves.
Christian education is essential to nurturing faith, therefore it is important that each of us participate in ongoing education so that  our faith continues to grow.
Courses in the PACE program, will not be limited to Bible Study, but instead will be designed to take a holistic approach of addressing the educational needs of the mind, body and spirit of adults 17 years of age and older.
It is the goal of the PACE program to offer courses that vary in length from single evening classes, to in depth courses four to twelve weeks in duration.  Courses will take a variety of forms including formal lecture courses, small study groups, and shared learning groups.
