Opportunities for Adults
Adult Christian Education
Adult education sessions run from September to May, typically meeting one evening per week for four weeks. Parishioners and community members alike come together into fellowship and conversation on topics that continue to build our spiritual lives and help us to grow in our faith. These sessions are a chance to meet with like-minded friends in lively discussions on books, films, and topics important to us as Episcopalians and as Christians.
Past sessions have included book groups as well as topical discussions:
- The New Jim Crow
- The Book of Joy
- The Gifts of Imperfection
- Living Buddha, Living Christ
