Faith Formation

Adult Formation

BIBLE STUDY - Join us every Tuesday evening from 7:00PM to 8:00PM, in person in the parish Conference Room or online, via Google Meet, to discern and discuss the upcoming Sunday's lectionary readings. Led by a rota of lay and clerical moderators.

 

ADULT FORUM - Continuing faith formation for adults that addresses theology, history, ethics, and spirituality. The forum will variously consist of books discussions, lectures offered by the rector, or group spiritual exercises and reflections during Lent or Advent. Recently, small groups at St. John's have engaged in Sacred Ground, Exploring the Doctrine of Discovery, and a discussion of The Gatherings.

 

This autumn, we are reading We Cry Justice: Reading the Bible with the Poor People's Campaign, by Liz Theoharis. Our meeting schedule, thus far, is at 6:15pm,

in the Conference Room, on the following Sundays:

October 15

November 11
