Adult Education & Fellowship

Adult Education & Fellowship

We have a variety of educational and fellowship offerings.  We hope you will join us for one or many!

Adult Forums on Sundays at 10:10 a.m.

Join us in the New Parish Hall between Sunday services for series throughout the Church year.

“I will with God’s help.” Each time we have a baptism or confirmation in the church, we renew the promises of the baptismal covenant together. Join the St. Mary’s clergy in the Adult Forum on April 23 and 30 and May 7 as we explore just what these promises mean and how they inform the ways we live our faith in the world.

Inquirer’s Class on Sundays at 10:10 a.m.

Inquiring minds want to know.  Want to know more about what it means to be an Episcopalian? Do you have burning questions about the history of Christianity? Are you curious about Confirmation? Join Andrew Moore and Bob Hetherington for an Inquirer’s Class meeting in the Library at 10:10 am on April 23 and 30, and May 7 and 14.   Whether you desire to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, are new to the Episcopal Church and just want to know more, or you are a long-time Episcopalian seeking a refresher, this is the class for you!

Weekly Bible Study

The Bible Study meets every Wednesday in the Library from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  Led by parishioner Frank Eakin, Weinstein-Rosenthal Professor of Jewish and Christian Studies at the University of Richmond, each Bible study session focuses on the Lectionary readings assigned for the succeeding Sunday. Anyone who is interested is invited to attend and participate in this vibrant discussion. Consider bringing a Bible in a translation or version that you enjoy reading. While no prior biblical training is required, an open mind and readiness to learn and share insights are always welcome!

Men’s Spiritual Practice

Led by Bob Hetherington, the gathering is an opportunity to deepen faith and is open to men of all ages. The men’s spiritual practice group will resume later in 2017.
