Growing into the Full Stature of Christ

We will become a center for lifelong opportunities for Christian education and spiritual formation in order to form committed, knowledgeable, and mature Christians whose lives are fully engaged with their family, work, and community.

Adults

Fall 2020 –  Join the Sunday Morning Zoom Series

We are still gathering online for most events, including Christian Formation classes. On Sunday mornings we will offer Adult Christian Formation “Spiritual Practices” series on Zoom at 8:30 a.m.

A Preview: In times of isolation as we are now when we cannot gather together in the Church to pray and come together at the table. We find ourselves trying to figure new and invigorating ways to be with God. Right now, that takes place mostly on Facebook live for Sunday morning Liturgy of the Word. In my Sermon on Sunday I explained one way I examine who Jesus is to me, is through the Spiritual Practice brought to us by St. Ignatius of Loyola, The Examen. It is a
spiritual practice that has been used for hundreds of years by Jesuits and laity alike to pray and be in a relationship with God. If you would like to learn more about the Examen and other spiritual practices, such as the daily office, Celtic spirituality, and Lectio Divina, please join us Sunday mornings at 8:30 am via Zoom for Adult Formation starting September 13 th . This will be a five-week program on Spiritual Practices presented by various members of St. Andrew’s. We
hope that you will be able to find a spiritual practice that works for you and will guide you on your path to further relationship with God in this pandemic and in the future.

Peace and Blessings,

The Rev. Bryan Callen

Adult Confirmation Class:

Fr. Daryl offers classes for adults who desire to be confirmed or received into The Episcopal Church.  Confirmation is when a baptized Christian makes a mature, public affirmation of their faith in the presence of the congregation, and receives the laying on of hands by a bishop to receive strength from the Holy Spirit to grow in their life in Christ.  For those who desire to be confirmed the church requires that they have been baptized in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, have been instructed in the Christian faith, are penitent for their sins, and are prepared to affirm their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Reception is for those who have been confirmed in another Christian denomination to be officially received into The Episcopal Church and made full member of it.

The class is open for anyone who wishes a deeper understanding of the Christian Faith.
