Adult Christian formation offerings for Late Pentecost 2017 through Epiphany 2018

Sunday Morning Adult Forum

Faith Formation for Real Life
Dec. 3, 10 & 17, 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall
Please join the Christian Education Team to talk about how the purpose and goals of adult faith formation programs might evolve to help us navigate a turbulent and rapidly changing world.

(There will be no Adult Forum on Dec. 24 & 31.)

Jan. 7—Feb. 11, 9:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall
To go on pilgrimage is not simply to visit a place to admire its nature, art or history, but to encounter God in a new way. St. Andrew’s pilgrims to the Holy Land, the Camino de Santiago, Iona and other locales will share their experiences.

During the Week

Women of the Word
Women of the Word meets on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Parish Library. The groups is currently studying Invitation to Psalms. This study will continue through December. All women are invited to participate.

Beginning January 10, the group will begin a five-week study written and lead by Daryl Knudeson. “The Tabernacle and the Priesthood: An Earthly Pattern of a Heavenly Reality" is a condensed and interactive Bible study focused on God’s commands to Moses to construct the first tabernacle and initiate the first priesthood during Israel’s Exodus years.  Its purpose is to explore the priestly role and the details of the Tabernacle in a way that points to Jesus Christ as the fulfillment of the earthly pattern directed by God.  It also unfolds a model for Christians to approach God through prayer as part of the royal priesthood of believers mentioned in the New Testament.” If you are interested or have questions, contact Peggy Woodall, 930-3234 or pwoodall1@verizon.net.

Thursday Morning Bible Study
This Bible study meets 10 to 11:15 a.m. every Thursday. Through December the group is studying Genesis.  There will be a special meditation on Advent at the Dec. 14 meeting. In January, the group will begin a study of Acts. (Will not meet Dec. 21 & 28)

Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is offered at 5:30 p.m. Mondays and 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays in the Parish Library. Led by David Lilley.
