Adult Formation

Adults and older teens are invited to join any of our education programs.  Due to COVID-19 concerns, we are offering zoom and in-person classes at this time.

 

Episcopal Church 101 – Wednesdays, 6-7 via Zoom (Coming Soon)

Who are Episcopalians and what do we believe?  Why are people crossing themselves?  Why is the Eucharist/Communion important in our lives?  Why do people call God “he” or “she." These questions and more are considered in this fun 6-week class. Contact Mother Cynthia if you would like to join.

 

Rector’s Bible Study

This group meets weekly to study and discuss the Bible.  We look at a variety of sources to inform how we read and are shaped by the holy scriptures.

Education For Ministry 

Discover Your Ministry with EfM.

 

Have you ever felt a deeper calling within your faith journey but weren’t sure how to respond? Education for Ministry (EfM) might be the path for you. EfM is designed to equip laypeople with the education and skills necessary to live out their baptismal ministry.

 

EfM is more than just a course; it’s a transformative journey. Over four years, participants engage in an in-depth study of the scriptures, church history, and theology. This study is enriched through prayer, guided reflection, and discussion within a supportive community. It’s a safe space where you can deepen your understanding of your faith and its place in your life and the world.

 

One of the unique aspects of EfM is its focus on theological reflection. By examining your own beliefs and understanding how they interact with our culture and Christian traditions, you learn to think theologically about your daily life. This process helps you discern how to be an effective minister in the world, whether in your personal, professional, or community life.

 

The journey through EfM reveals that every action, no matter how small, has the potential to manifest Christ’s love. You’ll discover that your ministry isn’t limited to church activities but is present wherever you turn.

 

We invite you to join us in this enriching program. Whether you feel a specific call to ministry or simply wish to explore your faith more deeply, EfM offers the tools and community to support you on this journey.
