Adult Sunday School Classes
We know that to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ there’s nothing better than scripture. Watch this video to learn about our Christian education classes, from lectionary classes to confirmation. There’s something for everyone at St. Martin’s.
Basic Bible Study
Jesus in Culture: Finding the Gospel at Work in the World
Sundays, June 4 – August 20
10:15 – 11 a.m.
Bagby Parish Hall
Adult Sunday School at St. Martin’s features inspiring teaching and supportive fellowship as we gather together as one large group. When he preached before the Areopagus at Athens, the Apostle Paul used Athenian art and poetry as a jumping-off point to share the Good News of Jesus Christ (Acts 17). This summer, join members of the Clergy as we illuminate distinctively Christian principles and ideas at work in secular media such as film, television, music, literature, even podcasts! It promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking summer.
Christian Book Study
10:15 – 11 a.m.
Vestry Conference Room
Our Sunday School classes emphasize Christian education and fellowship while reading various Christian books, and provide a community in which you can develop your Christian understanding, a sense of belonging and lasting friendships. Beginning in mid June the class is discussing The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.
Seekers (60s and up)
10:15 – 11 a.m.
Activity Center, Aerobics Room
Clergy Liaisons: The Rev. Nick Dyke and the Rev. Robert Wareing
Seekers is a great place for couples and singles to meet and study the Gospel and other readings, and then branch off into Church history, liturgy, sacraments and other related areas. We just have fun learning! Please come and join our group.
St. Martin’s 20s & 30s
Clergy Liaisons: The Rev. Alex Large and the Rev. Suse McBay
St. Martin’s 20s & 30s meet on Wednesdays throughout the year at various locations. You are always welcome to join one of the other Sunday morning peer groups.
In February 2015 the spiritual Faith Alive weekend attracted almost 1,000 parishioners, allowing them to connect with each other in large and small group settings. When the sessions ended on Sunday, attendees were asked for their feedback so that the feelings of fellowship, camaraderie and learning could continue. Overwhelmingly, attendees expressed a desire to continue the small group setting they experienced during Faith Alive. As a result of these findings, St. Martin’s will launch Covenant Groups (small groups) beginning this fall. Comprised of 10 – 12 persons, the plan is for each of these groups to meet in a parishioner’s home, allowing the group to forge closer relationships with other members of the group while enriching their spiritual life. In the months ahead, more information will appear in The Star and on our website enabling you to sign up and participate. For more information, contact Kathy Johnson at 713-985-3834 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
