Presbyterians are known for their commitment to education. We believe that faithful people struggle with questions and can best grow in their faith by studying, learning and sharing in community. At Heritage, we are committed to providing quality learning opportunities for all ages.
Church School is offered for ages 5 through 8th grade on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. Our classes use a variety of teaching and learning styles and are creative and fun. Music is a big part of our program and children frequently sing, dance and play instruments during the worship service.
Along with traditional learning, music and drama are emphasized with this group. Our youth music director is a middle school band teacher and has started a Heritage Youth Band.
Youth fellowship activities are offered several times a year. Our youth staff the local Ghost Walk and the Haunted House for Hunger in the fall and do other service projects throughout the year.
An adult class meets regularly on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. Currently we are using "The Wired Word" a study of current events and faith. Older youth are also invited to this class.
Other adult study groups meet at different times during the year. Topics vary. One fall, we studied Walter Brueggemann's "Embracing the Prophets in Contemporary Culture" followed by a field trip to hear him speak. A study of what it means to be a Presbyterian is being planned for sometime in the future.
A new Book Study Group started in February 2015. Our first book was "Have a Little Faith" by Mitch Albom. The study concluded with a movie night where we watched the Hallmark adaptation of the book. Watch for announcements about upcoming book studies.
There are no classes in the summer. A week long Summer Vacation Church School is held in partnership with Forest Park Presbyterian in New Berlin.
