Growing in Spirit and Learning 
St. Margaret’s offers a wide range of options to help in the life long process of growing spiritually. We recognize the need at any age to feed the mind as well as the soul with good teaching, and to provide an opportunity for deepening our relationship with God through the gifts of the Spirit.At St. Margaret’s we have learned that this can happen a number of different ways and we provide a wide range of spiritual growth opportunities.

Sunday Morning Adult Education

On Sundays during the school year, we offer classes at “the 10:10” in Bristol Hall.  Programs focus on different aspects of study: books of the Bible, Biblical themes, particular aspects of Christian theology and spirituality, and examining what it means to live faithfully as a Christian.  Watch for updates about the latest offerings.

Other Opportunities for Adult Spiritual Formation

Moms of St. Margaret’s Mothers meet on Monday mornings at the church from 9:30 to 11:30 for Bible study, playtime for children, and fellowship and support for moms.

Newcomers Classes offer an introduction to the people of St. Margaret’s and our history, as well as to the Episcopal Church.  The series of classes is offered several times each year.

Journey in Faith is a course for those seeking Baptism, Confirmation, Reaffirmation, or a better understanding of what it means to be an Episcopalian.

Study Programs are offered seasonally, especially in the fall and during Lent, on topics that range from Christian theology to spiritual growth.
