YOUTH Sundays 9:45AM Sunday School – Parish Hall. Children meet during the first half of the service for classroom time and play. Children join the congregation following Prayers of the People. (St. Paul's also has a nursery available for children under three.) Sunday School is on break until late September. The Nursery is still available throughout the summer.
We include children in our worship service as part of their education. Helping with the offertory and assisting as acolytes in the altar party provides opportunity for integrating the sacramental elements of our life together in community.
ADULT EDUCATION includes Scripture Studies and Readings on Spiritual Formation.
SCRIPTURE STUDY Scripture Study & Bag Lunch Wednesdays at Noon We gather both in person and with the option to zoom in. (Contact Rev. Sisk for details)
Current Study: Reading Second Isaiah (4 weeks of study) Wednesdays at 12 p.m. (Resuming Sept 7) Bring a lunch "Among the most beautiful biblical poetry, and most uplifting prophecy, belongs to the prophet known as Second Isaiah." This eight week course is based on the Yale Bible Study and is facilitated by Rev. Sisk and Warden, Rita Carver. Rev Sisk will resume our study in September with four more weeks dedicated to Second Isaiah. Recent studies have included: What is the Relationship Between Easter and Passover?
BOOK STUDY Regular Book Studies are held throughout the year. We gather both in person and with the option to zoom in.
Join us in September as Warden Rita Carver facilitates Breathing Underwater: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps by Richard Rohr. Richard Rohr asks us to consider what attachments we have, and frames them in the context of addictions that separate us from God and one another. This is not a book about AA, but about human nature. Contact Rita Carver or the office for info. This Study will be held after church over five Sundays throughout the Fall: 9/25, 10/9, 10/23, 11/6, 11/20
Recent Studies have included: Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer by Rowan Williams (Retired Archbishop of Canterbury)
