Spring Classes & Workshops

Come celebrate new life and new growth opportunities ... join us for a spring class, workshop or discussion group.

"Inquirer’s Class: A Course For The Curious"

New to St. Columba's (or even not-so new)?
Bring your questions and join us for the Inquirers Class! Four Sunday sessions, Apr. 8-29, 10:15-11 am in Rm 238. Meet other newcomers; learn what is distinct about the Episcopal tradition of Christianity (topic for Apr. 15 with Ledlie); discover what it means to join in the life and mission of St. Columba's. No registration required ... just come! Contact Jennifer Turner or the Rev. Amy Molina-Moore

“What the White Church Must Do”

Let's Keep the Conversation Going. Join us for five Wednesday evenings (Apr. 18-May 16, at 7–8:30 pm, Rm 212) as we probe a little deeper into issues of systemic racism and privilege in a video and dialogue series. Each week we’ll watch a thought-provoking video, followed by honest conversation facilitated by St. C’s Stirring the Waters ministry team. Contact: the Rev. Amy Molina-Moore

"When Death Comes Too Early"

A six-week support group for those struggling with the untimely death of a loved one. This small group discussion will be led by parishioners Heather Jones and Michele Prince, who have both experienced deaths of family members before their time. The group will meet Wednesdays, Apr. 18-May 23, 7-8:30 pm in Rm 220. Space is limited. Register early. Questions? Contact: Michele Prince

"Praying as a Parent"

Parenting is the hardest, most thrilling job from which you never “clock-out.” As the stakes for kids get higher, anxiety and stress take a toll on everyone, including the parents. If you’re in need of your own end-of-the-school-year “study-break,” please join Amy and friends for conversation and Compline (a short evening prayer service) on Wednesdays, May 9 and 16, from 7 – 8:30 pm in Rm 202 and St. Aidan's Chapel.
