Adult Education & Spiritual Formation

St. Michael’s offers Christian formation opportunities for people of all ages. We are all being formed on a faith journey, whether we are seasoned Christians or brand new to the church.  Our worship together, fellowship and social time, service and ministry to those in need; our music rehearsals, even business meetings on vestry and finance issues, go into shaping us as individuals and as a community of faith.  We have many educational opportunities for those interested in exploring this faith journey more intentionally, including Sunday Forums, weekly Bible studies, and evening classes requiring several weeks of commitment. Take a look at the offerings and join us for one or more!

Sunday Forums

The hour following our 10:00 am Sunday services is devoted to our adult forums.  This is an opportunity for clergy, members of our community, and invited speakers to present topics of interest to the parish community.  Past forum topics have included Apocyphal and Non-Canonical books, the Book of Common Prayer’s Outline of the Faith (commonly called the Catechism), Environmental Stewardship, and Anglican Spirituality.  Please join us!

Wednesday Bible Study

On Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:20 pm, we gather with a member of our clergy to study and discuss scripture.  This fall we will study the Psalms. We’ll use Bill Countryman’s Conversations with Scripture: The Psalms as a guide to our exploration of this sacred poetry – scriptures we encounter every week in church but may not fully understand. Countryman’s book is useful but not required. This study will run through October 28.
