Adult Faith Formation


Adult Faith Formation includes our church’s adult Sunday School and incorporates different vehicles to educate, enlighten, inform, and involve.  We meet in the Parish Hall and discussions run the gamut from discussing the lectionary to church music to why we are Episcopalian.  In addition, the Women’s Bible Study meets every Thursday for an hour after the 9 AM Eucharist. Scroll down for more information.

 

Sundays 9:15-10:00 AM

In the Parish Hall, 

All are welcome. Each session is self-contained, so you can come any time!

Stay for fellowship and learning after the 7:45 service; or arrive early and join us before the 10:15 service.
