Spring Courses

ALPHA: A Course for the Curious
Wednesday Sessions: Apr. 19, 26; May 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31
7-9 pm, Rm 220

Have general questions about the Christian faith and looking for answers? Are you considering being confirmed or received into The Episcopal Church during the Bishop’s visit on June 4th? If you answered “yes” to either question, this course is for you!

Using the internationally recognized Alpha program, we'll explore a range of topics for those ready to make a deeper commitment to the Church or those curious about what such a commitment means.

Join us! A light dinner will be served every meeting so please RSVP to Amy Molina-Moore for a proper headcount.

Law, Religion and Values: Competing Theories of Justice
Wednesday Sessions: Apr. 19, 26; May 3, 17 and 24
7 pm, Great Hall

(No class on Wed., May 10 so you may volunteer with New to You!)
Dr. Michael Kessler, director, Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs, Georgetown University.
Have you ever wondered about things like: “What are the moral values underlying the law? How does the law achieve justice? How can moral judgments be brought to bear in modern, secular institutions or in the formation of public policies?

If so, join Dr. Michael Kessler for a series of talks answering these questions and more. Together we will examine theories of justice and the relationship between law and morality in light of religious and theological visions of the good life.

Easter Living! Bible Study
Sunday Sessions: Apr. 23, 30; May 7, 14, 21 and 28
10:15 – 11 am
, in courtyard on sunny days/Church Nave (under the balcony) on rainy days
During Easter (and the rest of the church calendar for that matter) we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, but what does that mean for us? For our lives? For the world?

Join the Revs. Ledlie and Amy for informal conversations centered in Scripture about what it means to be people who take the resurrection seriously, (even if not every Christian takes it literally).
