Growth Courses
& Adult Sunday Classes

Joining an adult class is a great way to build intergenerational relationships, hear transformative teaching, and discuss important topics. There are two types of classes that we offer: short-term Growth Courses and ongoing Adult Sunday Classes.

Spring and Summer Growth Courses

At Highland Park Pres, our hope is to see all of our church family growing as followers of Jesus. Growth Courses are short-term (4–6 weeks) and will meet over Zoom and/or in-person. They are designed to help you, wherever you are in your spiritual journey, take steps toward Jesus in a life-transforming way.

"A Gentle Answer: Our 'Secret Weapon' in an Age of Us Against Them" by Scott Sauls

Wednesdays; June 16 to July 14; Five week discussion via Zoom. Meets 7:30–8:45 pm

In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living, one that loves others as God loves us? How can Christians be the kind of people who are known, as Proverbs puts it, to "turn away wrath?" Scott Sauls's compelling new book shows Christians how to become people of "a gentle answer" in a politically, relationally, and culturally fractured world by helping readers: grow in affection for Christ, who answers our hostility with gentleness; nurture a renewed, softened heart in light of Christ's gentleness toward us; and catch a vision to forsake us-against-them mentalities, put down our swords, and "infect" a hostile world with gentleness.

"Living Life Backward: How Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End" by David Gibson

5 Tuesdays, beginning Tuesday, Aug. 10 Led by Steve McLean on Zoom

Looking to the Book of Ecclesiastes for wisdom, Living Life Backward was written to shake up our expectations and priorities for what it means to live the ‘good life.’ Considering the reality of death helps us pay attention to our limitations as human beings and receive life as a wonderful gift from God – freeing us to live wisely, generously, and faithfully for God’s glory and the good of his world.
