Adult Sunday School
Sunday Christian Education, 9:15-10:15 a.m. via Zoom
Home by Another Road: Sermons in the Light of Christ
Led by Fr. Drew
Sundays | Jan 10-Feb 14 (except Jan 24)
During the season after the Epiphany, we are confronted with familiar scriptures and stories that speak to following the light of Christ. In that light, our Sunday Adult Formation during this time will focus on several foundational topics by way of sermons that challenge us to see God in a new way. Each week, we will gather via Zoom from 9:15a-10:15a to hear from a different notable preacher, reflecting together on themes, texts, and questions critical to a life of faith. Fr. Drew will guide our discussions, which will explore topics of love, doubt, and prayer, among others.
You can access each week’s discussion on Sundays at 9:15a using the Join Meeting link below.

Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique, four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 100,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.
