The Journey

The Journey is an adult educational program of biblical engagement, faith development, and spiritual growth. The Journey’s curriculum will be developed by a “Journey Team” and will be led by Church Leadership, Church Members, Christian Educators and Special Guest Lecturers.   Our goal is to compliment and strengthen Pastoral teaching and preaching at Community Presbyterian by presenting a dynamic Christian learning program that will foster rich conversations, biblical engagement, exploring great questions/current topics, and growing together as Christians.
