Adult Education and Formation


Eastertide is bookended by two major feasts, beginning with the Feast of the Resurrection and concluding fifty days later with the Feast of Pentecost (also called ‘Whitsunday’). Whereas themes of penitence and preparation resounded throughout Lent, forgiveness, healing, and new life pour forth from the Easter season. As we hear again the great mystery—that Christ is risen indeed—we are charged with searching and seeking sources of new life and healing among us.

Our Adult Education and Formation opportunities during Eastertide give us occasion to consider the realities of the resurrection present in our midst and how those signs of new life can be incorporated in our lives and in the life of the church.

Adult Forum

Book Sundays in the Parish Hall from 9:15am–10:15am.
Our parish-wide formation opportunity during the Eastertide will be a weekly book study of Barbara Brown Taylor’s Gospel Medicine. Each Sunday morning we will offer concurrent breakout sessions to discuss the assigned chapter(s) for the day. Our final meeting will be together in the Parish Hall on Feast of Pentecost, Sunday, May 20.

Youth Christian Formation

Sunday School
Sunday School is for preschoolers-5th graders, Sunday School will be during the 10:30 worship service. The classes are split into two groups, PreK-2nd grade, and 3rd-5th grade. The PreK-2nd Grade class meets in Classroom #7/9, while the 3rd-5th Grade class meets just across the hall in Classroom #10. The goal of our Sunday School curriculum is to teach children the way of Christ in the church and in the world, and to give them a solid grounding for their lifelong faith journey. Children begin in class and join their parents in the congregation for the celebration of Holy Eucharist at the Peace.

Our Middle School Sunday School and Cornerstone class (High School) meet at 9:15am. The Middle Schoolers meet in St. Mike's, and Cornerstone meets in the Cornerstone classroom, room #14/16. These classes continue on the faith foundations and journeys of our students, and foster spiritual leadership in our students--and usually include snacks!
