Christian Formation

Adult Forum
Fall 2014 Theme: Tell Me a Story, The Parables and Christian Spirituality
This fall, the Adult Forum will focus on the parables each week at 10:00 am in St. Andrew's House. Each week you are invited to join the conversation and discover new perspectives and new connections with scripture, spirituality, history, art, and literature. The schedule is:

  • September 14: Introduction to the Parables, led by John Ambrose
  • September 21 and 28: The Parables in Context, led by Kay McCall
  • October 5 and 12: The Parables in Jewish Tradition, led by John Ambrose
  • October 19 and 26: Journey to the Labyrinth, led by Barbara Ambrose

Intergenerational Activities
On many holy days, St. Andrew's organizes intergenerational activities during Sunday School or after church during First Sunday Fellowship that enhance our understanding of Christian traditions and practices while promoting engagement with one another across the generations.

Children's Christian Formation
We are very excited about our new offering, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, for children ages 3-7. Children will gather in the Atrium at 10:50 am in a specially prepared environment where they can reflect on the mysteries of the Christian faith. Children will learn about the Bible and about Episcopal liturgies by working with related materials by, for example, preparing a small altar with the elements used for the Eucharist. Children will rejoin the congregation after the Peace.
