St. Augustine's offers a variety of opportunities for adult members to deepen their faith:
Rev. Jerry Anderson, Guest Preacher and Adult Forum July 21
Ordained by Angels: The Life and Ministry of an AIDS Chaplain
Ordained in 1968 at St. Augustine's, The Rev. Jerry Anderson served as the Curate here for several years. He came out as gay in 1981 and has served parishes in Chicago, northern Michigan, Washington, DC, southeast Florida and Los Angeles. His memoir, Ordained by Angels, explores how he kept his faith in a loving God and maintained his sanity as he faced the deaths of loved ones and pushback from conservative elements of the church. Jerry will be our guest preacher at the 9:30am service on Sunday, July 21, and will lead an adult forum following the service. Please join us.
Fall Adult Formation
Equipping the Saints
Members of this group seek to live the call of our Baptismal Covenant to "persevere in resisting evil," especially in the context of racism. We began this conversation the first Sunday of Lent in 2016. We pledged to watch the videos shared from the 2016 Trinity Institute: Listen for a Change, and continued that discussion through the month of May. Now the group continues the essential work of racial reconciliation. Please see the Parish E-newsletter for upcoming meetings or contact Sam Love for more information.
Education for Ministry (EfM)
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a four-year program of scripture study and theological education within the context of small group conversation and and practice. EfM helps people of faith explore the depth of the Christian tradition, connecting with their experiences of the world as they study, pray, and engage in theological reflection together. To learn more about St. Augustine's EfM group, contact Sam Love or Debbie Buesing.
