Christian Education on Sunday Morning
On Sundays we offer a variety of classes for adults in the forms of ongoing classes or coffee hour forums. These cover a broad range of topics including scripture, justice issues, ecumenism, history, the environment, and many more. Use the links at the bottom of the page to see what is upcoming, and be sure to check the monthly newsletter and weekly emails to keep up to date.
Adult Bible Study meets Wednesdays from 12 to 1 p.m. in the Parish Room. We study the readings for the upcoming Sunday, occasionally exploring one book in particular or delving into modern issues with scriptural application. Bring a lunch, if this is your regular break time from work.
Education for Ministry (EFM)
St. James's hosts an EFM group—and has for well over a decade. This is one of hundreds of EFM groups that meet around the world for this program designed to help lay people learn more about the Christian faith and explore various kinds of ministry. EFM is a four-year theological education and reflection program utilizing course materials from the University of the South. Each group has a maximum of 12 students with one or two mentors. While EFM is a more serious commitment than other offerings, participants rave about the program.
