On most Sundays, adult learning is offered between the services, from 9:10am-10:00am. We hope this will be an opportunity for members who attend different services to enjoy some time together. Sessions are held in the Kramer Room, to the right after you enter the church from the north side visitor parking. Please note: on Sundays when no adult learning is offered, we will enjoy extended fellowship time.
Beginning in January 2023, Rector Rhonda is also offering a weeknight Bible study twice a month.

Twice Monthly Bible Study- Tuesday evenings
“Rector and Friends Bible study”, second and fourth Tuesdays, 7 to 8:15 p.m., on Zoom
Beginning on January 10, please plan to participate in our new, twice-monthly Bible study, led by Rector Time Certain Rhonda Lee. In January, we’ll start by reading Ecclesiastes, an intriguing book in the Wisdom tradition of the Bible. The author of Ecclesiastes is older, has seen a lot, and has some thoughts about how to live faithfully in this flawed world. After Ecclesiastes, we’ll decide which book to read next.
You won’t have to prepare in advance for our sessions, although you’re welcome to read ahead if you’d like. We’ll read and discuss the text together.
At our first session on January 10, Rhonda will give some background about Ecclesiastes, and then we’ll start reading together. Read the first chapter if you’d like to prepare in advance of the session.
The Zoom link will be in the weekly announcements. You can also obtain it by emailing Rhonda or our Parish Coordinator, Mike Sistrom.
