St. John’s has Sunday Morning Christian Education for all ages from September through May. Sunday School begins at 9:00 AM with our all-ages Gathering in the Nave of the Church while there is construction in the Parish Hall: fifteen minutes for announcements, a lesson, a prayer, with with breakfast fare on hand. From 9:15–10:15 AM, we go to our separate classes with adult classes meeting in the Church and Chapel and children/youth classes in the Undercroft (Church basement).

For Adults

Summer Study – That’s In The Bible?!?!?

Give CE a chance! Sunday morning sessions will be held from July 9-23 on a variety of little known and strange stories in the Bible. You want to know where C.S. Lewis may have gotten his idea about talking animals in Narnia? We’ve got that and a few other stories that will have you wondering what other stories the Bible may have to say. Fathers Houk and Johnson will guide a discussion of these strange stories in the Parish Hall.

Women’s Bible Study

The Women’s Bible Study, facilitated by Lea France, continues their Genesis to Revelation overview of the Bible.  This fall they will continue through St. Paul’s epistle to the Romans. Lea’s class meets in the Parish Hall classroom.

Early Christianity

Father Thorpe and Mike Lewis are planning a class for this fall covering a variety of subjects regarding the foundation of the Christian church. Topics will include the influence of ancient Judaism, competing religions, and the spread and development of early Christianity.

Membership 1-2-3

Membership 1-2-3 provides newcomers with an overview of life, focused on worship, discipleship, and mission, at St. John’s. It is designed for those coming from Anglican/Episcopalian churches and wish to transfer their membership, as well as those from other traditions (or no tradition) who want to explore membership at St. John’s. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Fr. Andy Johnson.
