Sunday Morning Adult Forum

The Sunday Morning Adult Forum meets September through May at 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall.

Good Book Club: Paul's letter to the Romans
January 6 through March 3
Last year, the Good Book Club dove into the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. Beginning January 6, we will read Paul’s Letter to the Romans. As Paul writes to the new community of Christians in Rome, he explores the concepts of salvation, the power of God, and grace. Many biblical scholars consider Romans to be Paul’s most important theological treatise. The Good Book Club has divided Romans into 50 daily readings. Each day, participants are invited to read, reflect, and pray upon a few verses of Romans. During the Sunday morning Adult Forum January 6 through March 3, we’ll take a look at the readings for the week ahead and talk about what Paul’s letter has to say to us today about being a disciple of Christ. You can download the list of daily readings and access lots of helpful resources at www.goodbookclub.org.

Inquirers' Class for Adults

An inquirer is anyone wishing to learn more about our Christian faith and specifically about the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement.  Inquirers can be longtime Episcopalians or people who are brand-new to this way of worship and life--or anyone in between.  People preparing for Confirmation, Reception, or Reaffirmation will attend all sessions of the Inquirers' Class, but anyone interested in the day's lesson is welcome to join us.  We will meet from 9:15 to 10:15 in the Music Room. Class will meet Oct. 14, Nov. 11, Dec. 9, Jan. 6, Jan. 27, Feb. 10, Feb. 24, Mar. 10 and Mar. 31. Click here for the schedule of class dates and topics.
