Adult Formation

At St. James’s, we value lifelong growth in Jesus Christ. Adult education or faith formation is an important part of developing disciples of Jesus Christ to serve the world and the Church. Faithful education can facilitate connection between parishioners and God, support holy habits and practices, nourish the soul, lend direction for the heart, instill knowledge for the mind, inspire the hands, and guide our feet in the ways of Jesus Christ. Though any experience can be formative, the Adult Formation Ministry oversees the adult classes, Bible studies, retreats, and pilgrimages offered at St. James’s. From our lay-led Sunday Small Groups and House Churches, pilgrimages and field trips, retreats and intentional spirituality groups, major events like WomanKind, weekly Bible and book studies, adult confirmation class, and more, we grow together in Christ.

Longing to connect but not sure where to start? Discerning where the Holy Spirit is calling you? Want to serve on the Adult Formation Ministry team? The Rev. Hilary Streever and any of our AFM Team would love to meet with you over coffee (hstreever@doers.org; 355-1779, ext. 319).
