Tuesday

Education for Ministry
Led by Elizabeth Lang
Class offered in morning and evening sessions
Drake Room, 9:30 a.m.-noon & Drake Room 6:30-9:15 p.m.

Want to get more? More personal connections, more spiritual depth, greater understanding of traditional and contemporary theology? EfM may provide what you seek. EfM is a program for adult Christian Education that combines study of Scriptures, Christian history, and theology with a focus on ordinary experience in order to discern God’s presence in one’s life. The program comes from the Episcopal seminary at Sewanee and has become famous for educating adults to see God acting through their lives as well as developing knowledge of Scripture and theology. Although the commitment is serious, there is plenty of laughter and companionship in an EfM group. More information about Education for Ministry

Wednesday

Men’s Lectionary Bible Study

Thursday

Men’s Lectionary Bible Study,
Coordinated by David Loomis
7:00-8:00 a.m.
Drake Room

This men’s group meets to discuss the lessons for the current week from the Lectionary, exploring ways in which the passages speak to everyday life and our own spiritual journey. Lessons and commentary are emailed early each week to enable participants to familiarize themselves with the material. On a rotating basis, participants facilitate discussion by studying the lessons and reviewing available information on the subject. Following the session, those participants who have time to do so move on to the Flying Fish nearby in Preston Center for breakfast.

A Men’s Bible Study

This Bible study is based on the Lectionary readings for the coming Sunday, meets throughout the year, and advance preparation is not required. There are no attendance expectations other than to come when you can as often as you are able. The group is led by lay members of the group and occasionally clergy.
