St. Augustine's offers a variety of opportunities for adult members to deepen their faith:
Our 2018 book study during Lent will be of the book Holy Solitude: Lenten Reflections with Saints, Hermits, Prophets, and Rebels, written by the Rev. Heidi Haverkamp. Rev. Haverkamp will serve as our guest preacher the first Sunday of Lent, February 18, and will lead the first Lenten book study discussion. Successive conversations will continue February 25, March 11, and March 18. Contact Kristin White to learn more.
Do you have questions about the faith, traditions, or beliefs of the Episcopal Church? Join us for a 6-part monthly series, Canterbury Consciousness: Forming an Episcopal Identity. Canterbury Consciousness will meet on the third Tuesday of every month from 7:00-8:30pm to further unpack how we embody faith. Upcoming dates include: February 20, March 20, April 17, May 15, and June 19. Please contact our curate, Andrew Suitter, with any questions or to let him know that you plan to participate.
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 in the 2017-2018 program year, the group has taken new leadership and continues the essential work of racial reconciliation. Upcoming meetings in this program year include February 4 and March 4 at 10:45 in the Parish Lounge. Please contact Sue Carlson or 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.
