Adult Education

Our Saviour’s Adult Education classes now come in different shapes and sizes! You can be fed during our one-hour “Main Course” classes - offered during several Sunday worship services or during the week. You can also taste test one of our brand new “Small Bites” classes - offered in between Sunday worship services (from 10:10 to 10:50 am). 

Main Course classes are a series of classes focused on one topic.

Small Bites classes are single classes – an interesting topic to learn about during one 50-minute session.

Note: Sunday School for kids will also be offered during the 10:10 to 10:50 am time-slot, so consider taking your kids or grandkids to Sunday School and then enjoy a “Small Bites” class of your own!

Planet Number 9
A new giant planet, still unseen, appears to be shaping the orbits of objects in the far outer Solar System beyond the planet Neptune. Computer simulations imply that Planet 9 has a mass 10 times that of the Earth, and orbits the Sun every 15,000 years! The race is on to confirm its existence by telescopic observation.

The Exoplanet Next Door

"LBOWs" on the Table
Our Saviour's call is to "live beyond our walls'" by engaging our faith in the larger community.
