Adult Education

Join us as we seek new opportunities for spiritual growth. Our popular Bible Study, Adult Forums, and classes/group discussions provide us with opportunities to continually learn and grow as disciples of Jesus.  To learn more about scheduled forums and events, check our calendar.

Bible Studylearning-adulted-biblestudy

Wednesday Bible study invites you to join us this spring to read the “Showings” of Julian of Norwich, the first woman ever to write a book in English, back in the 14th century. Especially if you’ve never participated in Bible Study before, this is a chance to experience for yourself this warm, engaging group as we commune over scripture. The recommended edition to purchase is Julian of Norwich: Revelations of Divine Love, translated (from Middle English) by Elizabeth Spearing, Penguin Books, ISBN-13: 978-0-140-44673-9. The morning class (10am-12noon) will begin this text on March 7, and the evening class (7-8:30pm) on March 21. Classes conclude on May 23. Classes move at their own pace, and attendance every week is not a necessity. If you’d like more information, please contact Tracy Rubin at tgr090@mail.harvard.edu

Adult Forums

We hold Adult Forums on selected Sundays after the 10 a.m. service.  Most of the book discussions and forums are led by clergy and parishioners, with occasional guest speakers. We invite members to come forward with ideas, including speaking about a topic they would like to share with fellow parishioners.  Check the calendar for upcoming forums and events.

The Episcopal Way

Interested in learning more about the Episcopal faith? “The Episcopal Way” is a four-part series for people who would like further grounding in the Episcopal faith and for those interested in formally joining the Episcopal Church. Clergy lead the classes, teaching the sessions in an interactive way.  Topics include beliefs, theology, sacraments, church governance and history. If interested, contact  Church Staff.

Seasonal Series and Retreat Days

Advent and Lent present opportunities for renewed learning and reflection. During these seasons, we offer programs geared to help people enter more deeply into their relationship with God. Retreats, daily readings and reflections, and discussion groups are examples of our Lenten and Advent offerings.

Women’s Spirituality

Our women’s spirituality group gathers periodically throughout the year for friendship, food, conversation, and spiritual enrichment. We have enjoyed together brunches, dinners, small group discussions, book groups, and retreats.
