Sunday Mornings in Lent for Adults

Lent is a season of spiritual growth, a great time to take up Adult Formation as a weekly practice. 
Walk in Love: Belief and Practice in the Episcopal Church, 9:30 am, Multipurpose RoomWe complete our Walk in Love series this Sunday, with a couple of Sundays left in our program year. Our final lesson from this series will be this Sunday. Fr. Scott will be teaching on the subject, “Proclaim To All People: Telling Our Story”. We find it easy to talk about trivial things that we’re passionate about. Why is it then that we are timid about sharing our faith? This class will look at some basic ways to tell others the story of God’s love for us, and how our lives have been impacted by the gospel. Fr. Beasley will be teaching on May 12 and 19, in two Sunday series on the Holy Eucharist. We'll look at our traditions around the liturgy of the Word on May 12 and those of the Table on May 19.

5k through 2nd Grade; 3rd through 5th Grade

5k-2nd grade students will dig into the Holy Moly curriculum beginning with the Old Testament, as well as lessons based on weekly liturgy to complement their time in the worship service. Sunday School leaders will help connect these Bible stories to children’s everyday lives through engaging questions and a craft or activity. Students in 3rd-5th grade will explore the Bible focusing on the lectionary readings for each week. (5k through 2nd grade in Room 226, and 3rd through 5th in Room 215) for age-appropriate activities and discussion time.

Middle School and High School

Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers will meet in two different classrooms in the upstairs Sunday School Hall each week for a time of fellowship, food and discussion based on scripture or a chosen theme series. They will engage in discussion, connecting God’s word to their lives and listening to occasional guest speakers talk about their faith stories. In the Spring, high school juniors and seniors may participate in Confirmation class during the Sunday School hour.
