Adult Education is small group oriented at St. Philip's and for the most part takes place during the program year: September through May.  These groups at various times and in different locations.  All of these are open groups and welcome new members.

Adult Enquirers & Confirmation Class

This class is taught as needed.  Instructional sessions are led by the rector.  Topics covered are:

  1. "So, who is this Jesus?" 
  2. "Getting to Know Your Bible" 
  3. "Basic Tenets of Christianity" 
  4. "Anglican Spirituality and Temperament"  
  5. "Worship & Sacraments" (two classes plus Holy Week)
  6. "History of the Episcopal Church"  
  7. "Episcopal Church Polity"  

Reading homework from the Bible, The Book of Common Prayer, teacher provided handouts, or our principle text A People Called Episcopalians by the Rev. Dr. John H. Westerhoff is associated with most of these instructional sessions.  A three-part essay is the only required work sample, and it is due at the end of the course prior to confirmation. 


Lenten Programs--Thursday evenings in Lent

Lenten programs have varied each year.  In 2017 we explored the Holy Land with Fr. Eric.  In 2018 we have been asking the question, "Who am I?" by looking at our God-given personality and gifts and how God might be calling us to use them.  Evenings begin with a soup supper at 6:00 pm and the program ends by 8:30 pm.   A list of resources for this program is available here.
