Adult Formation

FALL SCRIPTURE STUDY OPTIONS

A great way to dive deeper into your faith is to study the scriptures.  We typically meet in the fall and the spring either Monday evenings or Wednesday mornings, Wednesday evenings or Thursday at noon.  Each semester we do at least three different bible topics.  Here's what one participant has to say:

"I recently completed my very first bible study class - it was truly an uplifting experience.  I've wanted to do this for a long time but always hesitated because I was intimidated by the thought that everyone else would have so much more knowledge and I would be embarrassed. What I found was a wonderful, sharing group of people and I learned so much. I have already signed up for the next class and can't wait!"

Stay tuned for dates and topics for Fall 2017.

 

The Great Adventure Bible Study: 

The Bible Timeline and the Gospel of Matthew will begin in September 2017 when Faith Formation begins. See this  trailer for more information.

learn about the catholic faith

If you are not Catholic and want to learn more, are interested in becoming Catholic, or are Catholic and want to catch up on the sacraments, or you just want to refresh your knowledge join us in the social hall as we dive deeper into the faith most Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m.  There are many topics this fall including Bible Basics, Sacraments, The Trinity, The Mass, Moral Life, Prayer and Spirituality, Last Things, Mary and the Saints, Becoming Disciples, The Liturgical Calendar and so much more.  Along with the above we also have various retreats, small groups, community wide events and bible studies.  This summer we will do a short course RCIA program for the hungry Catholic, the inquiring Catholic, or the "just curious" crowd.  Contact us so we can give you the up to date schedule of the topics and what Thursdays we are meeting.  For more information about the RCIA sessions click here.
