St. John’s is committed to a vigorous and diverse educational program, augmenting and enriching its sacramental life.
Adult educational forums relating to Church history, the biblical interpretation, liturgy and religious philosophy are held following the 10 a.m. service on a periodic basis. Our Forums bring us all together to talk about the big issues and tough challenges we face – but also to celebrate our community and find new directions together.
Why do we do the things we do in the Episcopal Church – in Church and out of Church? What make us unique? What is the role of the Priest? Life and the here-after? Church history and its relationship to other religions and the whole world - what makes us different from other faiths? Please join us to a get a better understanding of the Episcopal faith.
All are welcome. Please contact the Church office if you would like information on this gathering - 860.868.2527.
