God for Grown-Ups
Dinner. We have monthly meetings, and the first thing we do is feed you. Members of our group take turns preparing meals or portions thereof. Expect everything from ordering pizza to the machinations of someone's inner mad-scientistchef.
With and after dinner we generally have 1-3 presentations on topics from the Catechism, apologetics, history, or Catholic culture, with time for questions or discussion as needed.
Classes are led by members, and everyone is encouraged to share something new or exciting.
While we primarily build our curriculum around the Catechism of the Catholic Church, God for Grown-Ups uses an eclectic mix of Major texts (The Bible, Catechisms, encyclicals, etc.), blog and print articles, audio and videos of note, and original materials.
Keep going for presentations and materials from our classes, extra articles, links to videos, and other items of interest.
Teach us your best new find from the Catechism. Take over the kitchen for one of our events. Put an engrossing article on the web site. Plan an event and find people to participate.
We're always looking for people to help make our program a success. We need teachers, organizers, chefs, and people to do all the things we don't even know we need yet. There are many gifts but the same Spirit, as the Apostle says.
Let us know how you can help.
