Heart of Longmont offers many opportunities for life-long learning, which is a vital part of our faith journey as adults. In addition to specially scheduled classes, workshops and Bible studies, Heart of Longmont offers three regular Sunday School classes for adults. Adult Sunday School classes follow a book/video club format with emphasis on spiritual growth and group discussion.
- Adventurers classes feature engaging conversations as well as coffee, tea and snacks. They strive to leave the classroom connected with others and blessed by the Holy Spirit. The age makeup is mostly Boomers and younger. This group also gathers for social outings such as hiking, dinners, comedy clubs, game nights and parties. Class meets Sundays at 9:00 AM in the Parlor (near the Fellowship Hall towards the back of the church). The class is studying Adam Hamilton’s Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today.
- Faith and Reason is a group of “ordinary radicals” who consider cutting-edge theological issues. They watch videos by leading theologians and then have spirited and in-depth discussions about the topic, working together to understand the ins and outs of a chosen topic. They meet Sunday mornings via Zoom from 8:30 to 9:30 AM. The class is currently reading and discussing Unexpected News: Reading The Bible With Third World Eyes by Robert McAfee Brown.
The Justice Seekers are a group of progressive-minded Christians who work to promote social justice in our church, community and world. Primarily through education, they seek to enlighten themselves and others about the challenges and difficulties of the disenfranchised, recognizing the inherent dignity of every human being. The group decides together where to focus their energies. Their current focus areas are:
- Immigration – The Justice Seekers seek to understand, with compassion and openness, the plights of recent immigrants to the United States, who are often marginalized and discounted.
- LGBTQIA+ Community – The Justice Seekers encourage Christians and others to be open and affirming of LGBTQIA+ individuals. They actively encourage the Heart of Longmont congregation to welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities into the full life of the church.
All are welcome to come and get healthy with a low-impact aerobic workout. The exercise group meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30 am in room 210.
