Education

Adult Education

No matter where you are in your faith journey, our church has a program to suit you.

Between Labor Day and Memorial Day, you are invited to join us in furthering your Christian education.

Adult Forum: This group brings in diverse speakers every Sunday at 10 a.m. Past speakers have included University of Virginia Prof. Sarah Teets, Ph.D., presenting “Josephus – An Amazing Life,” and the Rev. Karen-Marie Yust, Th.D. (Union Presbyterian Seminary) presenting on social media and the Christian life. Church members also make appearances as presenters. Check the church website or weekly eNews for announcements.

Adult Confirmation, Reception, and Reaffirmation: In the Episcopal Church, Confirmation is a Rite of re-affirmation that allows one to publicly affirm their faith in Jesus Christ, commit to the ministry of the church, and receive laying on of hands by the Bishop. Adult confirmation often occurs for those who are baptized at an early age later in life. The church also receives those confirmed in other faith traditions, recognizing that lives and beliefs change over time. Confirmation classes help candidates prepare to strengthen their commitment to God. For more information contact the clergy.
