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.

Sundays at 9:00 a.m. Eileen Manz leads a study based on biblical scholar Ken Bailey’s film series, “Jesus Interprets His Own Cross.” This is a hybrid study, in-person in the Thompson Room joined by participants on Zoom. Links are available through the parish office,  office@stjohnstroy.org.

Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. Bible Study: The Temple--from tent to building. Please join us as we follow Old Testament accounts of the ark of the covenant and the temple. New members are always welcome! We meet Tuesdays at 11 a.m. using Zoom. If you would like to join, please contact the office.

Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. Mtr. Judith leads a study on the Old Testament book of Numbers in the Thompson Room. Numbers recounts the 40-year journey of the people of Israel in the Wilderness. In-person for the fully vaccinated.
