Learning opportunities

At Colonial Church we strive to provide learning opportunities that stretch and grow our faith and theology while building community. Most classes meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings September through May.


Sundays, February 19 – March 19, 10:30am, Hearth Room

Have you ever wondered why belief in a good and powerful God can coincide with so much evil and suffering in the world? If so, you aren’t alone. Come to this study and explore what the Bible says about the issue, as well as how different theologians deal with this very personal and far-reaching problem. Our teacher, Kyle Roberts, is Professor of Public Theology and Church and Economic Life at United Theological Seminary.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

Wednesdays January 25 – March 22, 6:30-8:00pm, Hearth Room

Emotionally Healthy SpiritualityGrowing spiritually takes time.

Do you desire a deeper relationship with God? Are you ready to go beneath the surface of your life and faith in order to experience transformation? This new year add “growing deeper with God” to your list of New Year’s Resolutions and make time for this 8-week course designed to give you new tools to deepen your relationship with Christ.

The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (EHS) Course will take you on a powerful 8-week journey of transformation that will equip you with the tools to develop a deeper relationship with God. Each week we will spend part of the time learning together and part of the time in small group discussion. There will be reading assignments and reflection time during the week to help you apply what we talk about in our sessions to your daily life.

The cost is $27 per person and includes the book, workbook and a daily devotional. This class will be co-led by Danielle Jones (Colonial) and Joe McDonald (Upper Room).
