Spiritual Growth


Children’s Christian Education

Every Sunday the Children’s Chapel on the south side of the church is available for any young people that would like to color, play or read during the church service. Each week the Children’s Chapel is stocked with copies of The Sunday Paper (age 9 and up) and The Sunday Paper Junior (ages 3 to 10). The Sunday Paper is lectionary based, meaning it is based on the scripture we are ready each Sunday during service. If you miss service on Sunday, please stop in a bring home a copy of The Sunday Paper

Adult Christian Education

Weekly Bible Study is held in the library on Wednesday mornings. All are welcome. This group typically  reads and discusses the scripture that will be read at the upcoming Sunday services. Those readings can be found here on The Lectionary Page . Check our events calendar for other season Bible Studies, often held in the evening. Check the events calendar for the time.

Fall 2019 Education For Ministry (EFM)

Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 100,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.

This group will be starting in the beginning of October. It combines significant study of Scripture and the Christian tradition with disciplined discussions of how we experience and live our faith in everyday life. For more information visit http://efm.sewanee.edu/.
