Adult Christian Education

With regular learning, our faith becomes much more than a collection of information; it becomes a lens through which we see our lives. And when we see with the eyes of faith, we are more likely to act as God would have us act, for our sakes and the sake of others.


2017 Summer Sundays at 9am

Starting Sunday, June 4

“The Daily Bread of the Soul”: Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans

This October marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and there was no more important Biblical book to the reformers than Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans. Martin Luther called it the “very purest Gospel” and encouraged believers to read it every day as the “daily bread of the soul.” Led by the clergy, we will read Saint Paul’s theological masterpiece, seeking to understand its wisdom for us today. Bring your Bible, in any translation. No homework necessary!

Confirmation

“In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared, to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop. Those baptized as adults, unless baptized with laying on of hands by a bishop, are also expected to make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism in the presence of a bishop and to receive the laying on of hands.” 

                                                                                  From the Book of Common Prayer, Page 412


All Saints’ offers Adult Confirmation/Inquirer’s Classes for those who are considering becoming a Christian; those who are considering joining the Episcopal Church; and for those who would like to deepen their faith and learn more about their Episcopal heritage.

The Path of Discipleship (Adult Confirmation Class)

This is not your usual “class,” but a group committing to support one another as we walk together the path of faith, following Jesus. We will get to know each other, pray, and study the Christian faith in the Episcopal tradition. Father Poulson Reed and parishioner Michael King will be the mentors, with visits from special guests from time to time. This group is for adults who wish to be baptized, confirmed, received into The Episcopal Church (for those already confirmed in other denominations), and those Episcopalians who wish to reaffirm their commitment of faith. In other words, anyone may join the group, if you are willing to commit to our time together. We will  meet Tuesday evenings from 6-7:30pm March through May 2017. Email Lindsay Wood at lwood@allsaints.org to sign up.

  • Choir Workshops

    Saturdays in January and August
    Music at All Saints’ is a growth process. You begin working on music that you find compelling, and pretty soon you are working on more difficult music and honing your talents further. More than anything else, we have become a training ground for music in worship. We study together to create something greater than ourselves. We offer these Saturday morning training sessions from 9am-12noon in the Choir Room. Contact Scott Youngs to sign up: 602-279-5539 x128 or syoungs@allsaints.org.
