Christian Formation for Adults
Whether in Sunday school, small groups, or even in individual study, we strive to think critically about our faith—by examining the Scriptures, delving into book studies, and sharing our observations with one another.
Members take an active role in shaping class content and leading groups, participating in challenging discussion, scriptural engagement, and, ultimately, fellowship.
It’s a spiritual practice – going to work every day in the pursuit of justice, with our young people and the institutions that support them. So when I am feeling especially challenged and filled with doubt, I remember why it’s called a practice – and I practice on.
Explorers enjoy discussions on a wide-ranging of topics including current events, political, social, and theological issues. Join us for coffee and fellowship before or after in the Parlor/Lounge. Everyone is invited to participate as we laugh, learn, and grow together.
Meets in the DuVal Room, found on the main level.

Throughout her career, Sue has been active in various diversity action groups, seeking to pursue equality for marginalized groups so that each individual’s contributions might be optimized. The series of police shootings of unarmed black men in recent years galvanized her to develop a better understanding of how we got to where we are. The information presented in this series is the result of significant research about our country’s history in this regard. Sue Linderman is a co-founder of the Westminster Peace & Justice Work Group that was formed in Spring 2018 with the twin goals of combating violence in Wilmington and promoting racial justice. The Work Group is affiliated with a number of community organizations, including the Delaware Center for Justice, the Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow, Smart Justice Delaware, and others.
Breakfast & the Bible
Under normal circumstances, the group will gather at Legal Grounds Cafe in Elsmere (1208 Kirkwood Highway) to discuss the scripture that will be read and preached about the following Sunday. Come and enjoy warm fellowship, lively discussion, and prayerful insights into the Scripture. Bring your Bible or your phone's Bible app and grab a cup of coffee! Everyone is invited. Currently led by Neta Pringle on Zoom, where you can sip your beverage of choice!
