Adult Christian Formation

Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes counter-cultural life in a secular world.

Whether you are new to the Christian journey or looking to go deeper in your walk with Christ, there are many opportunities for adults to begin or deepen their spiritual journeys at St. Barnabas.

A good first place to begin is with the Adult Forum on Sunday morning.  This class which is led by Mother Meredith and other parishioners from time to time covers a variety of seasonal and topical themes.  The class meets weekly in Barnabas Hall from 9:00-9:45 AM.

Mid-week opportunities are places where you can go deeper into your journey and strengthen your relationship with God and learn more about the Bible and the tradition and heritage of our Church. During Lent, a special series on Wednesday evenings will be held with a light supper served.

In addition to our weekly classes and Lenten study St. Barnabas offers quiet days during the seasons of Advent and Lent and educational events are offered from time to time to provide opportunities to explore our Christian vocations, helping us discern what God is calling us to do and how to use our various gifts and talents in our witnesses to the Gospel.
