A community of faith
seeking to love and serve
in the Spirit of Jesus Christ
Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit
Education for Ministry (EFM) - Christianity is a rich and ancient faith tradition, but in truth many of us don't understand it well and feel ambivalent about its place in a complex and confusing world. EfM meets weekly and covers core theological material including the Old Testament, New Testament and Church history. Far richer than academic study, most of the time is spent testing and learning, sharing life experience and opinions with one another, as we learn how to incorporate a living faith into everyday life.
Four year in-depth program to learn the Christian faith. (Tuesdays in the Parish Hall, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., September to May.)
Just Faith- Through prayer, study, dialogue, and encounters with those on the margins of society, Just Faith participants embrace the invitation to develop a culture of care as they investigate eco-social justice teachings of our faith.
The Path, A Journey Through the Bible- for the 2017-2018 program year, ECOHS will be using The Path in Christian Education and Bible Study, to help us read the Bible together, better understand our faith stories more fully, and learn in community how to live into our call to carry Christ's light into the world.
The Church, the World, and You- A week to week orientation to help us find ways to better connect in the parish. Discussions will include what The Episcopal Church believes and how we worship, as we consider opportunities to get to know one another and look at ways we can minister within both the church and our wider community.
Rector's Bible Study - Fr. Keith leads studies of books of the Bible; recent books have included Mark, Exodus, Romans, Matthew and Genesis.
Home Groups - Twice monthly meetings to review next Sunday's lectionary readings and develop deeper sense of community.
Our parish has two home groups that meet on a regular basis. As part of the meeting, members read and consider the lectionary lessons assigned for the coming Sunday.
Fr. Keith writes questions to help begin the conversation for the home group members. The questions are listed below so everyone can review them as part of their preparation for Sunday worship whether they attend a home group or not.
Please talk with Fr. Keith if you would like to learn more about home groups.
