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.

These options are currently available during the pandemic.

Sundays at 9:00 a.m. Sunday morning Bible Study continues in a hybrid format: some participants gather in the Thompson Room, and others join from home via Zoom. We are now studying 1st Corinthians using a video series by Ken Bailey, a New Testament scholar and longtime resident of the Middle East. 

If you would like to join in via Zoom, please be in touch with Eileen Manz via email at office@stjohnstroy.org.

Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. we conduct an adult Bible study. We are in recess for the summer and will resume in the fall. During last year (September - June), we read The Book of Job, the public ministry of Jesus as found in Matthew, selections from Isaiah, The Letters of John, and The Book of Ruth. We are always happy to welcome new members; no prior experience is necessary. Please watch for details as we get closer to September! For additional information, please contact Gail at office@stjohnstroy.org.

Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Mother Judith is leading a series ONLINE. For details, watch for Wednesday e-blasts. To receive these announcements, please contact the office.
