Adult Education

Whether it’s Sunday morning or midweek, there’s a place for you. Our Sunday Morning Adult Education classes and weekday Bible studies meet September through June.  Our adult ministries are largely educational or social; if you’re the sort who prefers getting your hands dirty, consider that one of our outreach ministries might be the best place to start.  Our adult education classes are open to all.  Click here to view the latest Adult Education brochure.

Throughout the Week

Women's Bible Studies

Women's Bible Studies are held on Wednesdays throughout the program year.  There are several studies to choose from, held at 6:45 a.m. (for the early risers) and 9:30am and 12pm.  No prior experience necessary, just a desire to further your spiritual growth with other women at WPC. Join us at a time that works for you and see how God meets you and helps you grow. More detailed information about the studies can be found in the Women's Bible Study brochure and in the event calendar.

Women in God's Service (WINGS)

WINGS, formerly known as Presbyterian Women, is a group open to any of the women who worship at Wayne.  They study together, do mission work together, and enjoy each other's company.  They also hold an annual Christmas Marketplace and "Second Time Around" sale which raise more than $15,000 for various mission causes. They support the "Least Coin" collection, have an active Needlecrafter group which produces many items for area Presbyterian homes, and work with these homes for the elderly in other volunteer capacities. These mission activities have the active participation of approximately 175 women. Your involvement in this group is important and welcomed as we seek to nurture our own faith and also extend our Christian love to others.

WINGS holds several programs throughout the year which attract a good number of women. These usually have an informational or inspirational speaker. Several circles enrich the women's program. The small groups and circles are open to new members. Click here to read the WINGS brochure and learn more about this vibrant group. 

One particularly dynamic group is MOMs (Ministry of Motherhood) for mothers of young children.  This group meets twice monthly for playgroup, discussions and service projects; monthly for a Girls' Night Out; and offers a program for families of young children as well. Get more detail about this group here.

MEN'S MINISTRY

Thursday Morning Men's Ministry (TM3) is an informal group that meets at 7:00 AM each Thursday in the Knox Room on the second floor above the Church offices.  Our program year runs from September through June.

The morning begins with a hot breakfast, fellowship and banter, followed by a 30 minute presentation from outstanding professors from Eastern University. We wrap up at 8:00 AM, although the professors usually stay for a while to answer questions and chat.

Are you looking to dip your toe into the world of history, Bible study, astronomy, philosophy, theology and a host of related topics? This might be just what you are looking for!  The line up of guest speakers will challenge your mind and fill your spirit.  Come for a morning or two or the entire series! You'll be glad you did!

For more information or to get on our email distribution list, please contact Tim Pretz at tpretz@eastern.edu or Sal Ambrosio at sambrosio@tactix.com. The sessions will be posted on the event calendar of the Church website and you can get more detailed information in our brochure here. Hope to see you at TM3!
