ADULT EDUCATION

 

Our adult education programs offer a wide variety of classes and programs for learners of all ages, including:


Bible Study – Wednesdays,
7:00pm

Any and all are welcome to join in our bible study group at any time.  You do not need to have any prior biblical knowledge to join – all that is required is an inquiring mind!  We are currently in the process of considering starting a second bible study group, which would meet in the morning or early afternoon – please let us know if you would be interested in attending!


Confirmation/Reception/Inquirers Class – Thursdays,
7:00pm

This class is designed to meet the needs of students who may wish to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church, or who simply wish to know more about what it means to be an Episcopalian.  Topics covered include: worship, the history of the Episcopal Church, and biblical basics, with an emphasis on examining what it means to live as a Christian and an Episcopalian in our current tumultuous culture.


Episcopal 101 – offered on a rotating basis, according to interest

These classes meet for 4 weeks and investigate what it means to be Episcopalian by examining in brief our Anglican heritage, musical traditions, rich worship offerings, theology, and ways of life that all contribute answers to the age-old question “Why be Episcopalian?”


Adult Forums/Discussion Groups – offered on an occasional basis, according to interest

Adult forums and discussion groups are held on a wide variety of topics on an occasional basis throughout the year, and weekly during Lent.  Our next forum is scheduled for Sunday, October 13th, after the 10:30am service, and will feature our own Pat Ryan leading a discussion on our relationship to the Earth.  If you have interest in a particular topic that you wish to discuss, please let us know!
