Adjacent to our newly renovated children's classroom and nursery is our Adult Education Classroom. Adult Christian Education classes convene from

Adults began a new book study Sunday, February 22, 2015. "To read the Bible in church," says one lifelong Episcopalian in a story from Opening the Bible, "all you ever needed was a Prayer Book."

Let Fr. Tom know if you want a copy but please join us even if you don't have a copy of the book each Sunday in Lent 2015.
