Adult Christian Education
St. Uriel's offers a wonderful selection of adult Christian education opportunities. Our goal is to offer several ways in which the Word of God speaking through Scripture, fellowship, and classical Anglican spiritual practice can feed everyone.
We believe the parish has a very strong program of Christian education for adults that stresses not only learning but also fellowship and fun. We offer both day and evening classes as well as seminars, guest speakers and biblical series throughout the year. We like to vary what we offer, from programs to help newcomers to our classes feel more atrelaxed, to programs featuring exploration of Holy Scripture or adult spirituality issues.
Why attend Christian education?
It’s a way to learn more about our Christian Faith in the context of our Anglo-Catholic tradition.
It’s a way to grow ever closer to God and to deepen our sense of God working in the world, in good times and in difficult ones as well.
It helps us to learn how to cope with disappointment and challenges in our lives.
It’s a great way to meet more people and become more connected with our parish community.
The parish community is the place to grow in holiness to experience spiritual healing, and the place where we are challenged to live our Anglican faith as holy men, women, and children. According to this understanding, then every member of a local Eucharistic community is a life-long student and teacher. Of course the same can be applied to our homes. The parents cannot teach their children if they themselves are not open to growing in faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ. May we all grow in faith and into infinite communion with the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. May God grant it!
The topics for classes range from Bible study and practical theology to issues of marriage and family relationships. The teaching style and class format also vary according to the class. Whoever you are, there are bound to be a number of opportunities you will not want to miss.
