|Christian Education for Adults|
The purpose of Christian Education for adults is not only to teach us about how God's grace works, but to help us experience that grace; not only to know about God but to know God, to become God's friend. All are welcome – the baptized and the unbaptized, the seeker, the unchurched, the cradle Anglican, even the committed atheist. As we study doctrine, prayer, history, spiritual growth, scripture, sacraments, etc., we ask is it true, not just abstractly true, but true as in honest, authentic, sincere. We ask is it good; is it beautiful; does it more or less agree with our experience; does it enrich life and humanity. Anyone even casually interested in learning more about Christianity and the spiritual life are welcome to attend any or all of the courses offered. Special courses will be offered during Lent (the five weeks before Easter). Other courses and workshops will be offered from time to time. Retreats are also ancient and important ways of Christian growth and spiritual development.
The Church believes that the Bible is the word of God and is uniquely authoritative for the Christian life. Accordingly, opportunities for studying the Bible are an important component to parish life and growth. Currently, we offer a Bible Study on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. The study is led by our priest and takes place in the church after the mid-week celebration of the Eucharist. Home study groups are also encouraged.
Evenings at the Rectory
One Sunday evening a month we gather in the Rectory living room for a presentation and discussion on a selected topic. The evening will include refreshments and a time to socialize. All are welcome to participate. Check the calendar for the next Evening at the Rectory.
