Adult Formation Classes

Adult formation classes are an integral part of our life in Christ at St. B's!  During our program year from September through May, we offer a range of opportunities at 10am on Sunday mornings, between our two worship services.

    The Rector's Forum

    The most recent Rector's Forum series was titled, "Notes on Building the Barque," in which Fr Sammy discussed the vision he has painted for St. Bartholomew's through the Barque.

    Theology on Tap

    Originally created for younger adults, Theology on Tap invites people of all ages on a quarterly basis to connection, conversation, drinks, and theology in a casual atmosphere around the city. Our most recent conversation was about "The Joker and the Problem of Evil."  Other topics have included Augustine, politics, beauty, singleness, and the movie The Mission. Drinks and conversation are generally at 7 p.m, with the presentation begining at 7:30 p.m.

    Theology on Tap will return in-person in the Fall!

    Women's Bible Study

    Thursdays, 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. (during COVID, Thursday evenings 8-9pm)

    Women's Bible Study meets seasonally on Thursday mornings with childcare, although during COVID, the women have been meeting on Zoom on Thursday evenings. This group of women of all ages meets for study, prayer, and support. We enjoy each other's company and welcome newcomers. Contact Gretchen Abernathy for more information.

    Life Groups

    Life groups are committed, intentional micro-communities exploring God in our lives. We believe that life groups allow us to be more deeply connected to God and each other. They offer people the opportunity to reflect on where God has been in their lives and where God is today in their lives. This is not the kind of reflection that we can do alone, but it's the kind of reflection that is essential to growing as a Christian and a community.

    We seek to create inter-generational groups, with a good mix of ages and experiences with church and matters of faithGroups meet for 1.5 hours each week for 8 weeks, with an option to continue, and you need to be able to make at least 6 of the 8 sessions. New groups will start in the Fall 2021 program year.
