Fall 2017 Christian Formation Schedule

SUNDAY CLASSES START BACK SEPTEMBER 3, 2017


Fellowship Class for Adults (Sunday)

Currently focusing on the Book of 2 Peter, this class seeks to foster participants' walk with Christ through the study of scripture, and thoughtful discussion. Led by Andy Donnan, this ongoing fellowship class meets in the conference room.

Faithful Families (Sunday)
This class centers around the issues and concerns of families. Class members use theological reflection to find solutions to family matters. Faithful Families is open to all parents, and meets in the Kelley Room.


Bible, Bread, and Wine (Sunday Evenings)

On Sunday evenings during the program year we gather in the Conference Room for an intensive Bible Study that serves as the Liturgy of the Word. Participants reflect on and discuss the Gospel reading for that Sunday in a format that is often far more intense and academic than Sunday mornings. We use sources as varied as Greek and Hebrew references, theological commentaries, poetry, and story to explore the text and its meaning for our lives. We conclude by gathering around the altar for the Celebration of the Holy Eucharist. 


Bible Study for Women (Tuesday Mornings)

Meeting Tuesdays at 11 am, this is an ongoing class focusing on the study and discussion of the the book "Women Who Run with the Wolves," by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.  Led by Grace Keller, this group meets in the Kelley Room.


Education for Ministry (Monday Evenings)

EfM is a 4-year program of theological education provided by Sewanee Theological Seminary that is designed to help individuals discern their call to ministry and to live out that call in their daily lives. For detailed information on the program, see http://www.sewanee.edu/EFM/
