Adult Education

Adult Education & Spiritual Growth

St. John's Adult Faith Formation program offers many pathways to spiritual growth. Through the study of scripture as well as modern-day thought, we build the foundation needed to apply reason to our faith today. 

Adult Faith Formation is rooted in the Episcopal tradition exploring scripture, tradition, and reason. For those who come to this congregation from other traditions, fear not. St. John’s has many people who come from backgrounds other than the Episcopal Church. So, whether you are a “cradle Episcopalian" or a former member of another denomination, or no denomination at all, we are confident you will feel welcome in any of our classes. 


Please check back in September for a list of opportunities.

For additional Adult Faith Formation opportunities, please see the bottom of this page.
