Adult Education

Holy Spirit Lutheran Church provides a wide range of opportunities to challenge and nurture our Christian faith through lectures, readings, discussions, and other activities. Childcare is always available for evening classes. We accept donations to cover the cost of staffing.

The theme for this coming year is “Big Ideas” as we explore the various themes and ideas of our faith. The life of faith is full of big ideas. How do we read the bible in modern life? How do we understand the ups and downs of the church’s history, and why does it matter? How do I actually pray? Why do we worship the way we do? How do I work for justice and peace in a chaotic world? This year, we’ll gather on Wednesday evenings around some of these big ideas to ask big questions and wrestle with them together. You can join us every week, or just for the series that interest you the most. What are your big ideas? Let’s talk about them together.

Big Ideas on Faith & Justice

Wednesdays, May 1 & 8 • 7:00 pm-8:30 pm

Faith and Justice’ is a big topic. We’ll take a look at one particular place the two connect – our health care system – as a way of talking about how our faith leads us toward justice for all, and what doing justice actually looks like. Join Professor Gunnar Almgren of the University of Washington, author of Health Care as a Right of Citizenship, as we spend two weeks looking at health care in the United States. Dr. Almgren is also a long-time member at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Mukilteo.

grief support group

Mondays, beginning April 22 • 1:00 pm

There are all kinds of losses in life that can cause us to grieve. Some of them include loss of a job or income; loss of physical abilities through accident or illness that make it difficult if not impossible to do the things once enjoyed; loss that comes from divorce; and loss that comes from when someone we love dies. Join Pastor Rita for this six-week support group.
