Summer 2022 Adult Formation Offerings

Sundays, 9am in the Lower Level Parish Hall: Hearts Unbound – Engaging Biblical Texts of God’s Radical Love through Reader’s Theater

In celebration of Pride Month, join us for a new Adult Formation offering, Hearts Unbound.  The overwhelming message of the Bible, in story after story, is that of God’s radical love and welcome. Every time we think we know who’s in and who’s out, God does something to challenge those assumptions, to unbind our hearts and minds from old ways of understanding, and to draw the circle ever wider.  This is setup in a fun, informal reader’s theater – no costumes or props!  Readers needed!  Contact Sarah T. for questions/more info.

5 June / Matthew 15:21–28:  Hearts Unbound – Week 1 – Crumbs for Dogs

12 June / The Book of Jonah:  Hearts Unbound – Week 2 – Much More Than A Big Fish Tale

Mondays, 4pm: Centering Prayer
Join us as we practice Centering Prayer together every Monday.

Mondays, 7pm: Book Group – St. Augustine’s Confessions
We read a chapter (or so) each week and meet to discuss on Monday nights.
Due to changes in the schedules of participants, this Book Group is on hold indefinitely. That doesn’t mean you can’t assemble another group around another book!

Tuesdays, 7pm: Bible Study
Our Tuesday Bible study is a chance to read from the Scriptures together and hold an informal discussion. No question is too basic, crazy, or off-topic! We pick a book of the Bible and read through it, one or two chapters a week (depending on genre), and see where the Spirit leads the discussion. Currently studying: Daniel.

“Formation” is the process of making Christian disciples, followers of Jesus. Sunday School (for all ages) is a piece of that process.

As Jesus was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him. – Mark 2:14
