Wednesday Morning Prayer and Bible Study
Wednesday Morning Prayer and Bible Study takes place by Zoom from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The morning begins with the Office of Morning Prayer from The Book of Common Prayer, followed by an informal conversation on the Scripture readings for the upcoming Sunday. Information on how to access is sent each week to the usual participants. If you wish to participate for the first time, please contact The Rev. Abigail Crozier Nestlehutt for the link and other pertinent details. All are welcome.
Sunday Adult Christian Formation
Adult Formation normally occurs at the conclusion of the 9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist in the Bank Barn, from 10:20 to 11:05 a.m. Christian faith formation is lifelong growth in knowledge, service, and Love of God as followers of Christ and is informed by Scripture, Tradition and Reason. For more information on Adult Formation, please contact email@example.com.
The upcoming schedule of Adult Forum panels is as follows:
November 20 – The Newcomers Commission will discuss the initial steps it is taking to
welcome newcomers to St. Peter’s. Chair Heather Edelblute will lead the discussion.
December 4 – Following the combined service at 10:00 a.m., we will have the opportunity to meet Pastor Karl Kruger, who will be serving at St. Peter’s during Abigail’s sabbatical. In addition to introducing himself, Pastor Karl will present “The 500th Birthday of a Best Seller – In September 1522, Martin Luther published his German translation of the New Testament. The 3,000 copies sold within weeks and had to be reprinted in December 1522. His translation was epic and caught the attention of Myles Coverdale and William Tyndale, major forces in the English Reformation. Come and learn about the exciting story of a translation that crossed the English Channel and shaped the English reading experience.”
December 11 and December 18 – The Rev. Roy Almquist, former interim rector of St. Peter’s, will facilitate a discussion of the texts that will be read for the Service of Lessons and Carols presented by St. Peter’s choirs on Sunday, December 4. Roy will focus on the texts from the Hebrew Scriptures that constitute our Advent hope and expectation. These texts are too much to be dealt with in one session, so we will “share the wealth” over the middle Sundays of Advent, following the 9:00 a.m. service in the Barn.
