Living into our Baptism is a lifelong process that does not end with Sunday School or Confirmation. For many, it is a journey that truly begins in adulthood. And, what it means to follow Christ takes on new shapes as our lives take on new dimensions. The community around us is integral to how we grow as individuals. Below, you will find some of the Adult Formation opportunities available at St. Paul's, but be sure to check in regularly as a lot of our offerings are seasonal.
Each fall we offer a class in the weeks leading up to Confirmation Sunday. This class meets once a week to learn about and discuss various aspects of the faith, such as scripture, the history of the church, beliefs and worship. Our time together is meaningful, enjoyable, and low pressure. The class is geared towards preparing adults for confirmation in the Episcopal Church, but is greatly enriched by folks who are simply exploring or who have been confirmed and would like a refresher. Look for announcements about sign-ups and scheduling in the early fall or contact the Rev. Pete Burgess for more information.
The Men’s Prayer Group meets weekly on Tuesdays at 6:30 am for an hour, progressing through one selected book of the Bible at a time. Meetings are held in the library/conference room down the hall from the parlor. Coffee and sweet rolls are served. Expect insightful and open discussion. Meetings on the first Tuesday of each month feature a speaker and hot breakfast in the Parish Hall.
For more information, please reach out to the church office or to Mr. Brooks Milling.
The clergy regularly offers classes for adults on Sunday mornings between services. These groups gather around a theme for a series of weeks, and are a great chance to have coffee, get to know one another, and deepen our faith together. Look for announcements about upcoming offerings.
The Tuesday Morning Bible Study is a long-standing group that has met continuously for years and is open to all. Comprised of faithful members from all around our community, this study, led by the Rector, is characterized by their love of scripture, coffee, treats, and one another’s company. This group has covered multiple books of the Bible in their time together and always finds something new to discuss within the wonderful sacred texts of Scripture.
There is a place around the table for you, so bring your Bible, come as you are, and we hope you’re able to join us soon.
