Adult Christian Formation

Adult Education & Fellowship

Even during this time, we have educational and spiritual virtual offerings.  We hope you will join us for one or many!

Lenten Daily Devotional

The people of St. Mary’s have created a beautiful Lenten Daily Devotional Booklet. In this six-week Lenten offering, you will find reflections written by 30 parishioners – children, young people, and adults – on the themes that emerged from the vestry zoom call meetings. We invite you to pick one of these up to consider, think, journal, reflect, and pray about what kind of church God is calling us to be. A printed copy is available for pick up at the Church Office. If you are unable to pick one up call the church office at (804) 784-5678 to have one mailed to you. Or download the electronic version.

 

Women’s Spiritual Practice

What are you longing for? A bit of quiet in the chaos? A way to draw closer to God? Each Thursday at 8 a.m., the women (of all ages) of St. Mary’s are invited to come together for a time of prayer through the meditative reading of scripture (Lectio Divina), silence, and sharing. Each woman will have the opportunity to voice her thoughts on a meaningful word in the Gospel reading and also how the passage itself speaks to her. Led by Fran Jones and St. Mary’s seminarian Denise Bennett, the group will meet via Zoom. To join, email Fran Jones for the Zoom information.

 

Weekly Lectionary Bible Study

The Lectionary Bible Study still meets every Wednesday at 10 a.m. via Zoom. Led by the Rev. Eleanor Wellford and parishioner Bill Huffman, each session focuses on the Lectionary readings assigned for the following Sunday. It’s a wonderful space to learn, dive deeper into the scriptures, and ask questions. Anyone who is interested is invited to attend and participate in this vibrant discussion. Email Eleanor for the Zoom invitation information or call the church office at (804) 784-5678.

 

Men’s Spiritual Practice

This gathering is an opportunity to deepen faith and is open to men of all ages. The men’s spiritual practice group meets weekly on Tuesday mornings at 8 a.m. via Zoom. Please email Wayne Dementi to learn more and receive the Zoom invitation information.
