Children's Sunday School

In parallel with the school year, volunteers from our congregation educate our children on the Bible, its teachings and our life with Christ. All children ages 3 through 8th grade are invited to attend classes at 10:15 AM, Sunday mornings in the Parish House. The Sunday school runs in 5 "blocks" of about six weeks each, and the classes are divided into groups by grade level as follows: Pre-K, Kindergarten/1st grade, 2nd/3rd grade, 4th/5th grade, 6th - 8th grade. The calendar for the 09-10 Sunday School year can be found here.

Last year we completed year 2 of our all-new Sunday school program, and we are happy to announce that the introduction of the new curriculum has been a huge hit with teachers and students alike. We are, however, still in need of a few additional Sunday School Teacher volunteers for blocks during the upcoming '09-'10 school year. All that is required is enthusiasm and a willingness to help, as the new curriculum provides very clear and doable lesson plans for each week's class. You do NOT need to have experience, any special knowledge, or children in the program. Please call or email Sunday School Coordinator Rachel Norfleet at 271-0812 or to volunteer or to ask any additional questions about the program.

Adult Education

Sessions are run on an irregular schedule, usually taking place in the Parish House. Time and dates of the next cycle of classes will be posted once they have been announced. Please contact Deacon Keith with suggestions for possible topics of study.

Education for Ministry

Education for Ministry - Every Christian receives the call to Christ's ministry at baptism. Education for Ministry provides the basics of a theological education in order to develop knowledge and confidence about the ministry we all share.

EFM is a distance learning program of the School of Theology of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Completion of the program takes four years, during which participants study the Bible, church history, and twentieth century theology. Participants commit one year at a time to meet weekly in seminars led by a trained mentor. Participants can expect to do 2-4 hours of homework per week outside of the seminar. EFM requires prior registration. Please contact Penny Morgan at 271-9325 or email her at, for more information.

Youth and Adult Confirmation/Inquirer's class

A Youth and Adult Confirmation / Inquirer's class will be held this fall. Classes are conducted for those who wish to confirm their faith in the church of their Baptism, or who wish to be received into this church from another faith. Father Brad welcomes parents of prospective Confirmants to contact him to ask questions or discuss the process.
