Adult Formation Opportunities
We see all of our adult ministries as opportunities for growth and learning what it is to be a Christian man or woman. Sometimes we learn by mopping a floor or setting up tables for a Fall Festival. We learn through worship as we sing, pray and serve the church in the Altar guild, or as an usher, acolyte or lay reader. We learn as we pray the daily office, on Sunday mornings and as we pray our way through the church year. We also provide regular opportunities for learning through study, including:
Sunday Morning Adult Forum
The first Sunday of each month September through May,
we will set aside for "Hot Topics, Holy Chat," same time and place,
9:00-10:00 a.m. With your input if offered, I will designate in advance
of the first Sunday, what seems to be the "hottest" and/or most
controversial issues from the previous month, pleading for a Christian,
faith-based discussion. Then the other Sundays I will offer what was
originally scheduled, "Reading Through the Hebrew Scriptures," every
book of the Old Testament, to be exact. The schedule is here.
A lay led discussion group, in an open form, using poetry, secular writings and literary
forms from all religious traditions that examine the shared insights of
our individual spiritual awareness and growth in our life journeys. The group meets from 9:10 -10:10 each Sunday,
year-round. Currently this group meets in Father Greg's office.
Book Study Group
Albans Book Group will meet for a potluck brunch after church on October 16 to
discuss Muhammad: A Prophet for Our
Time (2006) by Karen Armstrong, a
British author and commentator known for her books on comparative religion. This
book is available at amazon.com. Please
