Sunday Adult Education
With regular learning, our faith becomes much more than a collection of information; it becomes a lens through which we see our lives. And when we see with the eyes of faith, we are more likely to act as God would have us act, for our sakes and the sake of others.

ADULT EDUCATION Sundays at 10am in St. Barbara
February 7: Your Best Lent Ever (Father Reed). Tired of the usual Lenten disciplines? Not sure what Lent is or what we are supposed to give up? With Lent just around the corner, come learn more about this opportunity to draw closer to God by giving up those things that are toxic in our lives, and adding channels of grace.

Vine and Branches: Lenten Small Groups
“I am the vine, you are the branches.” (John 15:5)
A different way to Pray, Learn, Serve, and Connect: Lenten Sundays from 10 to 10:45am in Saint Barbara. It’s a simple approach to seeking God together: Gather the groups at tables. Pray a short prayer. Read the Gospel for the day. Share how the passage is speaking to you, guided by a few brief questions. Close in prayer. Serve together on our all parish Service Day, April 16. Refresh your spirit. Deepen your connections. Come experience this holy conversation.
The Path of Discipleship (Adult Confirmation Class)
This is not your usual “class,” but a group committing to support one another as we walk together the path of faith, following Jesus. We will get to know each other, pray, and study the Christian faith in the Episcopal tradition. Father Poulson Reed and parishioner Michael King will be the mentors, with visits from special guests from time to time. This group is for adults who wish to be baptized, confirmed, received into The Episcopal Church (for those already confirmed in other denominations), and those Episcopalians who wish to reaffirm their commitment of faith. In other words, anyone may join the group, if you are willing to commit to our time together. We will meet Tuesday evenings from 6-7:30pm on March 15 through May 3. Confirmation by Bishop Kirk Smith is on May 8, 2015 at 11am. To reserve your place in the group, email Lindsay Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
