Adult Education is provided for adults throughout the academic year and covers a wide variety of topics. These offerings include:
Bible Study, led by the clergy, is held each Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the lounge.
Thursday Nights Together (or TNT) is a Lenten seminar series that is offered on five Thursday evenings in Lent. Each begins with a simple meal, is followed by a talk, and ends with Compline. Past TNT topics have included: Science & Religion, and Our Response: Our Changing World.
Adult Formation is a flexible, modular and accessible curriculum that is currently under development. The primary goal of Adult Formation is to help each parishioner grow spiritually, wherever they may be on their faith journey. Courses in the fundamental tenets of Christianity, Anglican spirituality, the history, structure and liturgy of the Episcopal church, and the history and structure of St. Thomas' will be offered, whether as introductions for newcomers and those seeking baptism or confirmation, or as 'refreshers' for life-long Christians. Other courses will address topics such as the complementary roles of science and religion, the nature of evil, in-depth reading of specific scriptures and topics in Christian ethics. Some didactic material will be presented, but the emphasis will be on fostering active learning and fellowship through discussions led by clergy and laity.
Information about upcoming adult education programs is published in the church’s newsletter, the Apostle, and the Parish Weekly.
