Christian Formation Committee (ACFC) works to provide
energizing and enriching educational activities for the adults of St.
Margaret's in order to further their spiritual and religious growth.
Check News and Announcements for updates on new opportunities. Members of the committee include Charlie
Briggs, David Griswold, Janice Hicks, Ron Lorentzen, Gigi Ross, and Joyce
Walker. Our meetings are on the first
Thursday of each month at 6:30 in the Parlor – all are welcome and we encourage
your comments and ideas.
On the Way
A continuing opportunity for adult fellowship, explorations of the Bible, book discussions and reflection on the faith journey is offered in On the Way, which meets on two Monday evenings each month. See News and Announcements for updates on the particular topics.
Margaret's Retreat Ministry organizes an adult retreat each year during Advent. These overnight gatherings provide a good
balance of fellowship and quiet time as we step away from the clamor of
our routines to reflect on our faith journeys. Our lay-led weekends
include creative worship, discussion, solitude, and shared meals. Past Retreat Themes
Adult ForumsOccasional lectures, book studies and discussions are scheduled between Sunday services. Please see News and Announcements for upcoming programs.
Inquirer's Classes for those seeking to learn more about their faith as experienced and lived out in the Anglican Tradition begin meeting during the Fall and Spring. Designed to be more Q & A and discussion rather than a continuing stream of facts and figures that can be gleaned from other sources, our focus is on what it is that makes us unique not only as Anglicans, but as Anglican Christians in this new age of globalization, when it seems that so many of the world religions are offering the same basic faith statements with only slightly different packaging. What sets us apart? For further information speak to one of the clergy.
The Inquirer's Class is also designed as the natural stepping stone to confirmation as an Episcopalian. Individuals interested in formally associating themselves with the Episcopal church will first need to participate in the inquirer's class in order to be confirmed into the Episcopal Church. You may also participate in the class and decline confirmation. Inquirer's Class is an opportunity, not an obligation.
