Adult Christian Education

Adult Christian Education opportunities vary throughout the year including a Rector's Forum to discuss timely issues as well as ongoing issues within the church.  Nan Bush facilitates a Bible Study Group every Wednesday at 10:00 AM as well as a "Seekers Group" held the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 2:00 PM.  Check the upcoming events for future offerings in this area.

Each Sunday morning (except the first Sunday of the month) Father TJ and Canon Jim will conduct an Adult Christian Education Class in the Main Sanctuary from 9-10 AM. This will be a most important forum because, in addition to covering much material about the Episcopal Church, we also will be discussing the various parts of the process which will eventually lead to the calling of a Search Committee for a new Rector. 

We have chosen the time between the services so that people who attend either will not have to make a special trip back to church.  Each Sunday's presentation will build on things discussed in prior weeks, so it is important to make an effort to be present Sunday by Sunday.
