Coffee and Conversation
“Coffee & Conversation” is a safe place to talk about God at work in our lives and in the world around us through the text of a book. This class is for adults and meets each Sunday from 9:45-10:30 AM in the St. Mark’s Meeting Room upstairs in the Leadership Center between services. We offer coffee, tea, cinnamon rolls, a classroom set of Bibles, and the current book we are reading, as well as plenty of friendly folks. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend as each class stands alone which makes it easy for new people to join the conversation. For more information, contact Paul & Peggy Forester at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lectio Divina Self-Study
On every Sunday morning, our All Souls’ Chapel upstairs in the Leadership Center is open and available for quiet contemplation and self-guided Lectio Divina. Lectio Divina means ‘divine reading’ in Latin and is a contemplative way to further engage and connect with the Living Word present in the scriptures. If you are new to Lectio Divina, we have prepared some material to guide in your first sessions that will be present in the Chapel every Sunday.

George 101: Our New Member Course
What does it mean to be a member of the Episcopal Church? What does it mean to join St. George? Our New Member Courses are designed to be a simple three-week study that will connect you with others who are new to St. George, possibly new to the Episcopal faith, and answer your questions regarding the faith. These classes are set throughout the year and are a great way to find a deeper connection to life at St. George. For more information, contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Understanding the Gospel
Each Sunday we discuss the gospel reading from the day’s worship service to uncover Jesus’ message to us for our lives. Since we all come from different places in our lives, we welcome everyone to share their perspective. This class is taught by one of our long-term members, but engages all in the deeper conversation about the day’s gospel reading and how it is relevant to each of us. This class meets each Sunday at 9:45 AM in the St. Luke’s Meeting Room in the Leadership Center, and is a great way to prepare for Sunday worship. For more information, contact Steve Alwais at email@example.com.

The Wednesday Bible Study is St. George’s most traditional Bible study offering. This course takes you through key passages in scripture and teaches you the history behind it, the context in which it was written, and allows you to explore the word through its original intention. Open to all, this course meets weekly at 11 AM on Wednesdays in our September-May in the St. Mark’s Meeting Room of the Leadership Center.
