Bible Circles

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. Tuesday’s Bible Circle meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 11am to noon. Our second class meets on the second Wednesday night of each month from 7pm to 8pm. Please click here for our 2020-2021 schedule. All are welcome.

Faith & Practice Series

This year, we are offering three Faith & Practice classes that invites members of our parish to deepen our own practice of Christianity. We gather together to reflect on an aspect of our spiritual life and we share our own questions and experiences. Click here to see this year’s offerings. This intergenerational class is held from 11:30am to 12:15pm on the first Sunday of the month it is offered. You are invited to join us as we grow in faith together. All are welcome.

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.
