Life Builders

During the School Year

10:30 am in Wallace Hall

The LifeBuilders class is open to everyone. With members ranging from their 20s to their 80s, the LifeBuilders class pairs thoughtful study with discussion and fellowship, resulting in an incredibly rich experience as we explore God’s word as a community and discover what it means for us in our daily life. The class meets in sync with the children's classes and is facilitated by Don Paul Gross and David West. For more information, please contact David at dwest@equinoxis.com.

Centering Prayer

During the School Year

Sundays, 10:30 am in the Rectory

Craving some peace and quiet? This historic, contemplative prayer style has been at the heart of Christian Formation for centuries. The class is open to everyone including newcomers and experienced contemplatives alike. 


Centering Prayer meets most of the year and lasts for about 30 minutes. Contact Rick Wood for more info at rwood@ssr-inc.com.

Anglicanism 101

During the Spring

Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8 p.m.  in Wallace Hall

Where did the Prayer book come from? How is Anglicanism different from other denominations? What do all the symbols around the nave mean? What is a nave for and why does it matter? What actually happens during the Eucharist? If you’ve ever wondered these things, then Anglicanism 101 is for you! Join Fr. Sammy as he answers these questions and many more as it surveys Anglicanism's rich history, and doctrinal distinctives that have made us who we are as Episcopalians. 


Offered twice a year, this class is for adults and serves as preparation for the rite of Confirmation and membership at St. B's as well as an enjoyable refresher for life long Episcopalians. Before class, join us for Evening Prayer in the sanctuary at 6 p.m. Childcare is available with a preregistration.
