Christian education is a lifelong pursuit at Old South. We believe that until God brings all we know to its final fulfillment, there will be more for us to discover about God, about ourselves, and about the world. Further, we believe that the world needs Christians who are well-educated, thoughtful, faithful, and formed by long engagement with the Bible and the best scholarship of the day, so we try to keep our minds and hearts limber, delighted, and open by frequent exercise.
Weekly book groups and Bible studies, special Advent and Lenten series, workshops, lectures, and of course preaching in worship are all cornerstones of the adult education program at Old South. Want to learn more? Check out the options listed below and then don’t hesitate: dive right in!
