Adult Education

The Forum

The Forum is our primary Adult Christian Formation offering, meeting in the Activity Center on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15. This season's first offering will be Sunday, September 13 with a program about the Episcopal church. Church history, our diocese and St. George’s will be part of the conversation, so plan to join us in Sturni Hall (the activity center).

Education for Ministry (EFM)

efm-logo Interested in gaining a deeper understanding of your Christian faith? Interested in exploring a call to service and lay ministry? EFM is a four-year transformational journey of theological study. The program, offered through the University of the South, offers the opportunity for participants to deepen their faith, develop their own theologies, and begin to identify the areas of ministry to which God is calling them.

Thursday Theological Thinkers

The Thursday Women’s Bible Study meets each Thursday at 12:15, usually in the Library. It is designed to offer participants the opportunity to come at lunch, study the following Sunday’s Gospel lesson, get back to work or other activities. The format is simple: The group prays the following Sunday’s collect, reads and discusses the Gospel lesson, then prays the collect again – making for a much more meaningful worship experience on the following Sunday.
