Sunday Faith Formation
From mid-September through mid-May, children 18 years and younger are welcome to our Sunday School which takes place from 9:30am-10:30am (which is between services).
Godly Play – Children age 3 through first grade are invited to attend Godly Play. This program, led by Karen Hahn, introduces young children to the Bible and prayer. Storytelling, art, music and of course play are used to build a strong foundation of faith. The fall curriculum focuses on the great stories found in the Books of Genesis and Exodus. Godly Play is located on the second floor in the “Upper Room.”
Growing with God – Children in second grade and beyond are welcome to join the Deep Blue Kids. Deep Blue is a Christian formation curriculum created for small groups of mixed ages. The fall units focus on service to God and others, and is particularly relevant in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey. The group will study the Old Testament to learn how Samuel, David and Solomon served God and his people. This group meets in the Children’s Choir classroom on the second floor. Kathy Kerber is the group leader.
Adult Christian Formation
Our Sunday morning Adult Christian Formation class continues to grow, nurturing our relationships with God and each other. The class usually starts at 9:35 and lasts until 10:20. It is between our Sunday services so people can stay after the first service or come early before the second. No class is held when we attend the quarterly breakfast and enjoy good food and conversation.
September 2019 – May 2020 Episcopal Questions/Episcopal Answers
Everybody enjoys a simple Q & A: it provides a quick, easy, and non-threatening way to learn – perfect for today’s busy lifestyle. Yet, with Episcopal Questions, Episcopal Answers, we’re also dealing with some of the most central and compelling elements of the faith.
This accessible Q&A introduction to The Episcopal Church is expressly written for general inquiries, use with new members, as a confirmation resource, and in youth and adult study groups. It is written by two prolific authors and established and well-recognized church leaders.
Sample questions of the new work include: What do Episcopalians believe about the Bible? Why do Episcopalians practice infant baptism? Why does God permit evil and suffering? What are the sacraments of the Episcopal Church? Is it acceptable for a Bishop to question the Virgin Birth? Why is the Prayer Book so important to Episcopalians? What is the relationship between the Prayer Book and the Bible? What is the Anglican Communion? How did the Episcopal Church come to be? How are decisions made in the Episcopal Church?
Please stop in and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and fellowship. Weekly attendance is not required but encouraged.
