Christian education is a foundation of our community at St. Andrew’s. With a wide range of learning experiences offered here, we welcome you to join us. Please contact the Rev. Margaret Schwarzer, associate rector for adult formation and membership, regarding any of the information below:
On certain Sundays following the 10am service, there are gatherings for discussion on a topic of current interest. These are usually led by parishioners.
Each year group members select a book of Holy Scripture to study during the academic year. We read scripture, consider scholarly commentaries, and share personal insights and experiences. Bible Circles meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:30am in the Harvey Room, and/or on the second Wednesday night of each month at 7pm in Room 2. All are welcome. For a schedule of this year’s sessions, click here.
Christian Learning Series
Our adult class meets from 9am to 9:45am on the second, third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of the month from mid-September through May in Room 2. You can learn about our current offerings by clicking here, or by reading St. Andrew’s communications. Recent topics have included spirituality, history, scripture, theology, and prayer. Please join us as time and interest allow.
Faith and Practice Series
On the first Sunday of the months of October, November, February, March, and April, we offer a Faith and Practice class that invites members of our parish to deepen their own practice of Christianity. This intergenerational class is held from 11:30am to 12:15pm in the Harvey Room. You can learn about our current offerings by clicking here, or by reading St. Andrew’s communications. All are welcome as time and interest allow.
On Wednesday evenings during Lent, members of the parish gather for a potluck supper from 6 to 6:30pm in the parish hall. After supper, all are invited to an adult program from 6:45pm to 7:30pm. Please join us.
Men’s Bible Study Group
Our men’s Bible study meets on the first Saturday of each month at 8am. Group members select one book of the Bible to study for the academic year. Through reading Holy Scripture, discussing scholarly commentaries, and reflecting on personal experience, members discern the implications of God’s Word for their own work and ministry.
Men’s Book Club
Meets the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm in the Harvey Room for fellowship and discussion of selected works of non-fiction.
Reading Maven’s Book Club
This is a book club for both men and women and we include fiction and non-fiction suggested by participants. We not only discuss how well we liked or didn’t like the books, chat about literary impact (or ignore it), but look for any spiritual or biblical resonance in the readings. We meet in the Harvey Room on the first Monday of each month at 7pm.
