This small group meets to study the Books of the Bible.
This four-year adult formation study program is designed to help lay persons deepen their understanding of their ministry, reflect on God's presence in their lives, and help equip them to serve God in the world. Participants study the Old Testament, New Testament, church history and theology (one topic each year).
They also engage in theological reflections and worship together. Participants are asked to commit to one year at a time. The cost is $325 a year; partial scholarships are available. EfM is an international study program administered by the Sewanee School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn. Additional information is available on the EfM website, efm.sewanee.edu.
These confirmation classes are available as needed for those ready to commit to full membership in the Episcopal Church. They are arranged, supported and directed by the rector.
This group was started in 1985 by our then rector, Mary Adelia McLeod, as a Bible study group. The group has continued to meet and thrive because of the shared acceptance and interest of the members. Members collectively choose a book to read, buy it and then take turns reading it aloud. The subject of the books can vary quite a lot, but members choose books that promise to be interesting and that will keep them thinking and talking. They welcome all open-minded readers, willing to share and to hear others' reflections.
This group enjoys lunch together, followed by a guest speaker or program.
