Adult Faith Formation
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him,
rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
- Colossians 2:6-7
At St. Alban’s, we believe faith formation is a life-long endeavor. We offer the following opportunities for religious education and spiritual growth for adults:
A few times a year, our lay-led book group selects a book and discusses it informally (and spiritedly!) at a potluck brunch following the 10:30 a.m. service on a selected Sunday. Notices are found in the weekly bulletin and in the weekly e-newsletter. Selections have ranged from spiritual memoirs to best-sellers, C.S. Lewis to Ta-Nahesi Coates to Parker Palmer. Notices are found in the weekly bulletin and in the weekly e-newsletter. Come join us for fun, food and great conversation.
Rector's Bible Study
The Rector’s Bible Study meets on Wednesdays vis Zoom. Please email Jessica for the Zoom link. Together we read and reflect on the lectionary scripture lessons for the upcoming Sunday. This is a wonderful way to deepen your faith and understanding of the Bible. No RSVPs or preparation needed–just drop in when you can. To find the Sunday lectionary readings, visit: http://www.lectionarypage.net
St. Alban’s offers a class for any adult who wishes to be baptized, confirmed,
or received into the Episcopal Church, or who simply wants to explore what we
believe and the basics of faith. The class explores the basics of Christianity:
God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the sacraments, the Bible, and The Book of Common
Prayer. The class also addresses the way the Episcopal Church lives out our faith
through worship and outreach. Bishops preside at Confirmation, so the class is
scheduled based on the date of the Bishop’s annual visitation. Class dates will
be announced in the weekly bulletin and in the weekly e-newsletter.
