Adult formation

Adult formation meets for one hour starting at  9:10 AM on Sunday mornings in the Parish Hall.  The interactive classes cover a variety of topics, and are designed and taught by people with special competencies. Our many qualified presenters have included seminary grads, a past college president, and an author. 

The goal is to grow up to full stature and strength as followers of Jesus Christ, and to be able to share an account of the hope that is within us. 

You can listen to previous adult formation sessions here and in the archives.

"The Dynamic Time is Now: the Kingdom of God is Near. Get on Board and Believe in the Victory of God.”
(Mark 1.15, Rector’s translation)

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant us so to hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
