Adult Ministry

Why is education in God’s Word so important at Providence?  The Bible reminds us that all of us–adults and children alike–should constantly seek God’s truth.

“You shall put these words of mine in your heart and soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and fix them as an emblem on your forehead. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.”
Deuteronomy 11: 18-19

Seeking God’s truth is spiritually rewarding, and it is a great way to meet people and understand how our faith relates to what is going on in the world around us. Typically, Providence offers opportunities for engaging classes Sunday mornings, and on Mondays at 7:15 pm.  During COVID-19, classes and discussions will be offered virtually, as is feasible.

Here is what is currently on offer at Providence. Please join us any time!

In October, the Session approved that Providence become a
Matthew 25 church.  According to the PC(USA), Matthew 25 churches will take steps to “build congregational vitality, dismantle structural racism, and eradicate systemic poverty.”

PC(USA): Become a Matthew 25 Church

This past fall the church held a book study with more than 50 members of the congregation on the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.  One of the concerns coming out of the book groups was a yearning for practical steps we at Providence can take to eradicate systemic racism.  The Adult Ministry Committee has therefore asked Karla Bruce, Chief Equity Officer of Fairfax County, to make a presentation on how we can address systemic racism right here in Fairfax County.  Please join this Zoom presentation on December 1 from 7:30-8:30 pm. We will provide the link soon.
