Adult Ministry

Central has multiple classes this spring.

  • “Reading the Bible Through a Transgender Lens.” 
    Thursdays begins April 21
    7 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom
    Central is offering this class in partnership with Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. The class will meet on Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m., for six consecutive Thursdays beginning on April 21. The first five sessions will be delivered via Zoom, and the last session will be in-person at the home of a class participant, with a shared meal before the class session.
    The class is free for participants as the Adult Education Committee is covering the cost of the class. The class is limited to 25 enrollees.

  • The Negro Spirituals: A Biblical and Theological Perspective
    Beginning April 24
    9:45 a.m.
    The Parlor
    Led by Rev. Oscar J. McCloud, this class will discuss the biblical and theological basis of Negro Spirituals, sometime referred to as slave folk songs or slave spirituals – the earliest form of Black Theology. One writer has referred to the Negro Spirituals as “singing the Lord’s song in a strange land.” The Negro Spirituals speak to the birth, life and death of Jesus Christ; to the struggle and emancipation of oppressed people (“Go Down Moses”), to the aspiration and longing for salvation (“We are Climbing Jacob’s Ladder”). The Negro Spirituals are based on Old Testament and New Testament biblical texts, and key Christian doctrines. Why this class? Not many people are aware of the history, purpose and meaning of Negro Spirituals. This class will explore these components.
    The class will meet in the Parlor for five weeks beginning April 24 at 9:45 a.m.
