Adult Education

Growing in discipleship never ends. Here at St. Paul’s we rejoice in that fact! Learning is a life-long process and we believe the best learning engages the whole person. Our offerings in Adult Education cover a wide-range of topics and issues and aim to be engaging, relevant and faithful to our responsibility of life-long learning and living before the face of God.
Our recent offerings have included these forums:

  • Following C.S. Lewis in Prayer
  • Peacemaking as A Way of Life
  • The Book of Common Prayer
  • Left Behind: Are There Other Ways to Understand the Book of Revelation
  • Favorite Psalms
Bible Challenge

On September 16 we started our Bible Challenge on day 260 with the First Letter of Peter. Read through the New Testament in the coming year and think about its application in daily life. Download the schedule of readings here or pick up a schedule at the Front Desk.

Discovering St. Paul’s

This three-week class, led by the Rector, is offered three times a year and is open to all. If you want a refresher course in the Gospel, learn more about St. Paul’s, or want to belong more fully to our congregation, this class is for you! Room G-2.

Keeping The Word Alive

This conversational, lay-led class is offered every Sunday except when we have an All Parish Coffee Hour or when otherwise pre-empted. We examine the readings of the day, usually focusing on the gospel lesson. Bring your willingness to learn and to listen to conversations that promise to be informative, challenging, thought-provoking and fun. Room G-4.               

Education for Ministry

EFM provides non-ordained people a spiritual and theological experience of the breadth and quality usually only found in seminaries. In a small group that meets once a week, participants will learn about the great sweep of the Christian tradition and learn ethics, liturgy, modern theology, the relation of Christ to culture and more. The course follows a four-year program, with each program year lasting 32 weeks. Contact Marcheta Scott in the Church Office for more information.      

Praying Together

Two prayer groups meet regularly at St. Paul’s.

Contemplation, Conversation, and Compline meets Wednesday at 7 p.m. for quiet prayer, study and conversation.

Small Group Prayer for Intercession meets on Thursday at 10 a.m. to pray for the church, the world, and especially those in need.

Quiet Days, led by our clergy, takes place several times a year, usually on a Saturday morning during the church seasons of Advent and Lent. In 2009, we have Quiet Days scheduled for October 3rd and December 5th.

Call the Church Office for more details about any of these groups.
