Adult Sunday School
Saint George’s offers a weekly Adult Sunday School during fall and spring “semesters” with a break over the summer months. Classes are taught by Fr. Paul and have covered a wide range of subject matter including The Seven Ecumenical Councils, Reading 1 Corinthians with the Church Fathers, The Leaven of Liturgy and other subjects. Each class is available in audio file and podcast formats for those who missed a session or even wish to listen to an entire course from start to finish.
Children’s Sunday School
Children’s Sunday School is offered every week of the Fall and Spring “semesters” at the same time as Adult Sunday School. Children are taught by our caring and diligent instructors who have brought our young ones through several curriculum including the APA’s own courses. In addition to instruction, classes often include games, crafts, and other projects matching the seasons of the Church Kalendar.
Weekly Bible Studies
There are several opportunities for Bible study at Saint George’s as, in addition to Adult Sunday School we offer two weekly Bible studies for women and one weekly Bible study for men.
The Monday Morning Women’s Bible Study meets on Monday each week at 10 A.M. and the discussion is facilitated by Judy Ellis and Linda Rivard. The Wednesday Women’s Bible Study meets at 1:30 after the weekly noon Eucharist and the course is led by Carla Whaley. The Wednesday Night Men’s Bible Study meets faithfully at 7:00 PM and the gathering has been taught by a variety of instructors over the years.
Confirmation and Summer Courses
Each year, a Confirmation class is offered for those joining the Anglican Church who have not been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession (Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, or Continuing Anglican).
Many adults who join Saint George’s come from other traditions and therefore this course is usually used as an opportunity to unload all imaginable questions about Anglicanism on Fr. Paul as we work chapter by chapter through The King’s Highway, by George Carleton. Children who need to be confirmed will work through a much shorter course using the Offices of Instruction or the Catechism found in the 1928 American Book of Common Prayer. Confirmations occur at the annual episcopal visitation of our Diocesan Bishop.
