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.

Upcoming Events

The Biblical Case for Reparations – Sundays in Lent at 11:45 a.m.

Over the five Sundays in Lent, we will engage various biblical and theological examinations of a faith-based approach to reparations. Each week’s conversation will be based on an article which participants should read beforehand. We’ll meet in the Reception Room of the Parish House (and on Zoom) from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. on Sundays in Lent. Download this flyer for more info.

Ongoing Programs

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. We 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 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.
