Doughnuts and Theology
Doughnuts and Theology is one of our weekly adult education offerings, which occurs most Sundays during the academic year. Themes range from worship to immigration and the Church to intergenerational Bible study to visual arts and spirituality. Per the title, we will have doughnuts at EVERY gathering, come rain or come shine!
Join us for this weekly gathering as we dive more deeply into our faith.

The Art Project
Join us for our newest adult education series, which will be our last series in Doughnuts and Theology for the academic year which is on visual arts and faith life. In it, we will be exploring some big themes about faith through the lens of the visual arts. Here are each of the themes with their corresponding Scripture which inspired them:
- Session One April 16: Talking with God – Psalm 1
- Session Two April 23: Created to Create – Genesis 1
- Session Three April 30: Describing God – John 17:20-26
- Session Four May 7: Caring for Each Other – John 12:1-8
- Session Five May 14: Telling Our Stories – Acts 16:10-18, 40
Each week, we will discuss a work of art in conjunction with a Scripture passage based on the theme for the week. After our discussion, everyone will be invited to create a work of art, each week with a different practice. Have no fear; you definitely do not have to be an artist or art historian to participate, in fact, even better if you are not an artist (although we certainly want everyone!) This is about the process of thinking about our faith in a maybe different way than we normally do. It helps us ask the question: how can we see our faith life: our spirituality, education, outreach, and worship and change the lens by which we look at them to cultivate a fuller faith experience? We will begin to scratch the surface of that question through this program together.
On a personal note, I dreamed up this series as a part of my PhD program and research. I would so appreciate your participation as I am basing some of my research on this series. – Audrey
