adult formation

The life of faith is never lived in isolation—we abide with God and with one another, even as we are varied and different.

Deepening the bonds between us is a commitment, a value, and way of life grounded in the wisdom of Jesus that loving one another, truly, deeply, beyond the surface we present one another, is loving God.  We have created opportunities for us to talk about what matters to us, a chance talk about how we live with difference, what helps us to do so and what value is gained when we take that risk with one another.

Learnings from the Living School

Wednesday evenings, 7pm
Join us as Pastor Elizabeth shares insights from her studies at the Living School and learn some of the practices that awaken greater consciousness within.

Pastor Elizabeth is a participant in a two-year academic program offered by the Center for Action and Contemplation. The school, taught by Richard Rohr, Cynthia Bourgeault and James Finley, seeks to awaken participants to a more conscious union with the Holy One who permeates all of creation, and help us to have eyes to see.

Can you help deliver Meals on Wheels?

Imagine struggling to shop and cook for yourself and having someone deliver several meals to your door. By giving just an hour and a half of your time during a day, you can be the difference--and meet some wonderful people along the way.

Meals on Wheels is part of St. Simon’s Outreach program, and June is our month. Please consider signing up to help deliver. It’s great to do with a friend or with your children. It will be greatly appreciated by both the village and those individuals on the receiving end of the meal delivery. The sign up sheet is available online and in the Narthex. Thank you, and if you have any questions please contact Sandy or Jim Ladd.

Seasons of the Spirit Bible Study

Wednesday mornings, 10:00—11:30am
During Lent, the Wednesday morning Bible study will bring thought provoking-questions that help participants define and refine their faith. When did you spend time in the “wilderness”? How do you think you were being tested or challenged? When we read a gospel
story, we tend to identify with one character or another.  How does your attitude change if you read the
story from the perspective of a different character? If any of these questions strike a spark within you, please join us on Wednesdays. For more information, contact Dorothy Byrd.
