Connect and Grow

Exploring our Faith Collectively and Individually

Adult Formation at St. Michael’s

Despite the challenges we face in this time, there are plenty of opportunities to connect, explore our faith, and deepen our community. The St. Michael’s family is alive online: we meet in weekly small groups, gather for special seasonal events, walk the path of Sacred Ground, and pursue training and education of all kinds.

St. Michael’s Small Groups

What wisdom and encouragement can Scripture offer us as we live through difficult times? In what ways does being in community mean something different for people of faith? Dive into these questions and more in our winter small groups as we study the letter to the Philippians. We’ll use “Philippians for Everyone” by N.T. Wright as a companion guide.Small groups begin the week of February 5th and will meet for eight weeks. Each session will last for one hour, and meetings will be held on Zoom.

Connecting With Each Other

Oftentimes, you will hear members of St. Michael’s referring to our community as a parish family. In fact, one of the most popular monthly activities is our Family Dinner nights. We also have small groups that meet informally, such as the Men of St. Mike’s; Motherhood of Grace; Parents of Adolescents Support Group; Young Adult Group; Knitting Group; Family Camp and Hiking outings. Supportive and caring small groups in a large Church setting enable us to minister to each other.

Connecting to Our Community

We are a faith community that supports each other and our community in multiple ways. Whether it is helping the jobless through CareerSearchers; mentoring our parish and neighborhood children on Monday evenings during Homework Help; or providing food and meals to those who struggle with food insecurity, service to others is part of our Core Values.
