Adult Programs

Cherry Hill offers a variety of programs for adults.

SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY – 11:45 a.m. – Room 222 

So what do you know about the prophets in general and the prophet Micah in particular?  Did you know that it was prophets who were largely were responsible for the survival of the Jewish people after they were conquered by Assyria and the Babylon? Did you know that Micah forecast the birth of Jesus 700 years before it happened? Did you know that he spoke one of the most powerful and direct statements of what God wants from people?  you are invited to explore these verses and more as we explore the prophet Micah, his sayings and his world.  Grab a cup of coffee, some treats, say hello to your friends and join us for this class! We will meet upstairs in room 222.

MONDAY NIGHT STUDY GROUP – ADVENT STUDY –                                                                  Monday Evenings – 7:00 p.m. – Chapel Parlor 

BECAUSE OF BETHLEHEM

            This Advent season, the Monday night study group will be reading Max Lucado’s book, “Because of Bethlehem.”  Lucado writes, “Because of Bethlehem …Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record … just grace! We have the promise that God is always near us, always for us, always within us – and that we have a friend and Savior in heaven. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, the promises of Bethlehem endure.”

Session titles are:

November 27              God Has a Face

December 4                Worship Works Wonders

December 11              God Guides the Wise

December 18              Every Heart a Manger

Copies of the book are available from Rev. Mark Phillips. The group meets at 7:00 p.m. on Monday evenings in Chapel Parlor. Why not make this discussion part of your preparation for Christmas this year.

                                                         

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN 

There are two women’s bible study circles, Pikeville Circle – which meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Henry Ford Village and also Peace Circle – which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the church. Both circles are using the Presbyterian Women Horizons study for 2017-2018: Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Heaven by Melissa Bane Sevier. In nine lessons, Ms. Sevier invites us to explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community. The community for which the letter, or homily, was written interacts, in a sense, with all communities of which we are a part, as we bring these groups with us wherever we go. This ever-present “great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as we “run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12: 1b-2).
