Adult Education

                                                                                                                                           

In the Anglican tradition, theological reflection draws on three primary sources: scripture, tradition and reason. Study, reflection and candid discussion are therefore practiced here; searching questions are therefore welcomed here. Recognizing that what we believe about God directly affects how we relate to God, St. John’s offers Adult education in a variety of venues.

Sundays at 9:00 a.m. we conduct an adult Bible study, combining literary, theological and devotional readings of a biblical text. 

Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. we conduct an adult Bible study: The Story of Elijah

Please join us in the Thompson Room on Tuesday September 10 as we begin a study of this Old Testament prophet. We meet from 11 am - noon. We are a friendly group, and enjoy using maps and other aids to help us understand the story. All are welcome, and you could come once and see how things go! Facilitated by Gail Richardson.

Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. St. John’s hosts a community Bible study, complementing the Daughters of the King’s Bread Ministry.

Every Advent and Lent, St. John’s hosts a weekly Candlelight Meditation service, 6:00-7:00 p.m.
