Christian Education

Sunday Mornings at Grace Episcopal Church (September - May)

Sunday School for Children, 9:15, 3rd floor

Join us as we continue our journey through the Bible/with The Path.
Ages 3 to 5th grade

Youth @ Sweet Treats, 9:30

Called through Faith with Holly Pickett and Susan Cross. Each session examines a call from God to people living in the world in the past and today. Each person answers the call in a different way, but not without struggles, difficulties, and conflict. We are also faced with struggle,
difficulty, and conflict in an ever increasingly secular world. We are called as Christians in the world and to respond to God's call to live out

the promises of our Baptismal Covenant.

Christianity and Culture, Parish Hall, 9:15

What is the Church? One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic in the
Beginning, in the Middle, Now. This spring three sessions of the
Christian and Culture adult class will explore the nature of Christian life in the Church (4/29, 5/6, 5/20), taking as its cue the four adjectives for the Church in the Nicene Creed. What has it meant for Christians through the ages to be one, to be holy, to be catholic, to be apostolic? Devoting one Sunday to each term, Alexandra Brown, as a New
Testament scholar, will lecture on the early Church, Ed Craun, as a
medievalist, will lecture on the Church in the late Middle Ages, and the group will discuss the Church here and how. What does it mean for us as members of Grace Church, of the Episcopal Church, and of the
Anglican Communion in 2018 to be one, holy, catholic, and apostolic? All parishioners are invited to participate.

Lectio Divina, 9:15, Canterbury Room

Lectio Divina has been used by Christians since the third century and helps us come to God with our whole body and whole mind. It involves a structured response to the reading of a passage of Scripture and we will be using the Gospel for each Sunday. We will be learning to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit, the teacher promised by Christ. You just need to bring yourself and a desire to grow in the light of Christ.

 

Weekdays

EfM (Education for Ministry)
Education for Ministry (EfM), a four-year program of theological education at-a-distance, has begun its fall session here at Grace Episcopal Church. As the emphasis on lay ministry has grown, the EfM program has played a crucial role in developing theologically informed, knowledgeable lay leaders. The program is sponsored by the University of the South and since its inception in 1975, more than 60,000 people have participated. If you’re interested in becoming a part of this group, contact Sharon Massie, Program Director, for more information.
