This Sunday's Adult Education Classes:
LGBTQ Terminology and Culture | February 16 in So. Bradfield
Words and how we have used them to describe people within the LGBTQ community are changing. Words that were once filled with hate have been reclaimed, and millennials are expanding our terminology to include words they feel better using to describe themselves. Ticia Kelsey from OutReach Inc. LGBTQ Community Center will present on how using the correct words can be an act of kindness.

About Adult Education at Covenant
Covenant Presbyterian Church is a progressive faith community committed to providing high-quality Presbyterian Christian education. Presenters and Pastors provide opportunities for participants from all walks of life, from those who grew up in the Presbyterian church, to those who are seekers and have little to no church background. Adults are encouraged to ask questions in their individual faith journeys.
The Adult Education Committee believes that it is important to offer an assortment of programs to appeal to various attendees who may want to learn the Christian basics, understand the complexities of interpreting scripture and/or how to apply scripture to modern living and expressing their faith through fellowship in Covenant's community.
We also have a variety of small groups here at Covenant. Small groups help us to connect with one another, to deepen our relationships with God and with others. Small groups provide an encouraging place for us to explore our faith and to help others on the journey. Scripture tells us, "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other..." Come, join a small group and let us lift one another upon this exciting journey of living and sharing faith.
