Our Faith and Christian Education

"The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ." - The Episcopal Church Visitors' Center

Adult Education

We gather each Sunday at 9:15 am for viewing a provocative DVD about some aspect of the Christian faith and life, or for some topical discussion led by the Rector.

 

The first Sunday of the month our parish nurse offers some educational aspect of living healthy.

 

Wednesday mornings a group gathers to discuss specific books that enhance our spiritual journey and deepen our faith.

 

Seasonal educational events happen during Lent when we gather each week to engage a particular aspect of our faith. I

 

 

A Prayer for Guidance

 


We thank you, O Lord,

for your presence in our lives and ask for the continued guidance of your Holy Spirit to strengthen our witness to the Good News. 


Grant our vestry and clergy wisdom and steadfastness to make the decisions needed that will lead us on the path that you have prepared for us. 

Empower us with strength, courage and faith to care for each other and to reach out to our community.

All are welcome

Christian Formation: Every Sunday  9:15 AM in the Harry Large Room!

Why did Jesus happen when he happened? Why the confluence of the Baptism movement of John and the Kingdom movement of Jesus? Why the tiny villages around the Lake? Why the confrontations in Jerusalem? Why then? Why there?   

What were the priorities of Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom? How was the status quo of Roman imperial theology subverted by this obscure Galilean whose message continues to indict empire today?

First Light is a 12-session DVD and web-based study of the historical Jesus and the Kingdom of God with two of the world's leading Jesus scholars (John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg) on location throughout the Galilee and Jerusalem.
