The adult Academy, an idea designed by the Education Team and launched in January, 2013, offered a three week study on faith and cosmology , led by Murray and Peter. We learned that the universe is expanding continually and that its diversity is beyond the imagination of event the most knowledgeable scientists.

In November, Sylvan’s Little Red Schoolhouse offered a learning opportunity for adults interested in deepening their understanding of Canada’s Indigenous People in today’s world. A film series was presented called “The Eighth Fire, Aboriginal Peoples, Canada & the Way Forward.” This high energy, award winning CBC production gets its title from an Assiniboine prophecy that declares that now is the time for Aboriginal peoples and the settler community to come together and build the 8th Fire of justice and community. (The film series can be borrowed from the church office for home viewing.)
Easter viewing of the film classic, Jesus Christ, Superstar
Our youth benefited from the personal presentation of the critically acclaimed movie, Six Million Paper Clips by the co authors of the book.
