Our Adult Formation Programs
Everyone is welcome to join us on Thursday mornings on Zoom to discuss the readings for each upcoming Sunday. The study begins right after the 9:30 a.m. Prayer Service. Contact the office at 607-748-8118 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link. We examine the readings from a commentator’s point of view and relate them to our own life and times.
Rector’s Forum –
After 10:00 a.m. Service
Each Sunday members of the parish join the Rector for a discussion on various topics of Christian faith, morals and ethics and topics that help us to increase our knowledge of our Church, religion and faith. The Junior and Senior High School students are invited to attend. We meet in the undercroft directly from after the 10:00 AM service until about Noon.
This discussion is held over coffee and doughnuts.
Wednesdays during Lent
Each Wednesday during the Season of Lent we hold a Service of Holy Communion in the Chapel at 5:00 PM, we then have a simple supper at 6:00 PM followed by a short program and discussion at 6:45 PM. Our evening concludes by 7:30 PM. Note: Due to Covid-19 the program has been on Zoom. We hope to resume meeting in person in 2023.
Note: Due to Covid-19 this program has been suspended.
Please check the calendar for meeting dates.
Lectio Divina is a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures. There are three various translations of a Scripture reading each followed by a reflective question. It is more reflective and spiritual as opposed to our Thursday Bible Study, which is more educational in nature. We discover our own longings and deepest insights as we further our relationship with God.
We bring our hopes, concerns and prayers as we reflect on the events of our lives. We try to formulate our baptismal call by moving forward in our spiritual journeys.
The Season of Advent
On Mondays during Advent we have Service of Holy Communion. The sermon addresses various Advent themes. In the past we have used art as a focal point. The service begins at 5:30 p.m. and is held in the Chapel.
All Things Spiritual
Each first Wednesday of each month, after the 9:30 AM Healing Eucharist, we gather for prayer and discussion about a chapter in a book on a spiritual topic. We discuss a chapter at a time. Note: Due to Covid-19 this program is being held on Zoom. Contact the church office for the Zoom link.
All Things Theological
We gather for prayer and discussion about a book, theological in nature on the third Wednesday of the month after the 9:30 AM Healing Eucharist. Note: Due to Covid-19 this program is being held on Zoom. Contact the church office for the Zoom link.
Our study of the Bible continues each month on the second Wednesday as we study different books of the Old and New Testament. This is different from the Thursday morning Lectionary Study which uses the Sunday readings as its basis. We meet after the 9:30 AM Healing Eucharist. Note: Due to Covid-19 this program is being held on Zoom. Contact the church office for the Zoom link.
