HACKBERRY U - Learning together, one semester at a time Our goal is to make Adult Sunday School the place that everyone wants to be for an hour each Sunday morning. Every six weeks we will offer a variety of courses designed to appeal to both new or longtime participants. We invite you to visit a class or two each session, then make a commitment to attend for six weeks. It is our hope that we will all increase in knowledge, mature in faith and grow in fellowship.
HackU Spring Classes Present Over Perfect In Present Over Perfect, we examine how to live a rich, engaged, and loving life in the midst of what often feels terribly messy and imperfect. Guided by the book by Shauna Niequist, we will discuss how to leave behind busyness and frantic living to rediscover the person you were made to be. The class focus is on a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us. Instructors: Erik Johnson, Cassandra Johnson, and John Schreibfeder
