Adult Theological Study & Reflections
Our Fall Christian Education Program begins September 10, 2017.
It was Saint Augustine who said “our hearts are restless till they find rest” in the Lord. Theological study and reflection are important ways we grow as a community in faith and are natural responses to our longings for God. Christian education at St. Mary’s gives space for this work, as we celebrate and explore the wonders of God's action in the world through the person of Jesus Christ. We offer classes on a wide variety of theological topics that are grounded in Holy Scripture and the riches of our Anglican tradition. All are welcome!
Rector's Forum in Randolph Memorial Hall: "Reading Paul" presented by Dr. Josh Davis. Three Sundays- September 10, 17, & 24.
Other Offerings this month:
"In Context: The King of Instruments": September 17 in the Chancel; presented by Josh Bullock. Join us to examine the role of the organ in Anglican worship and to be introduced to the various sounds of our own pipe organ.
"Sticky Faith Family Program": Five Sundays beginning September 24 in Room 108. Presented by The Rev. Bentley Manning and Leslie Manning.
