Happy Tuesday! I see there is a snowflake out there in the forecast…but that is a long way out so let’s plan for business as usual for Sunday! Of course, if anything changes, be sure to check the St. Paul’s website and check in on WRAL for more details.
Nurturing Faith: From Childhood to Adulthood
I am very excited to share information about an upcoming adult education series that includes some classes created especially for parents! The series is Nurturing Faith: From Childhood to Adulthood and it will be held on Sundays during Adult Education (10:15am-11:00am) in the Chapel. Please keep an eye on the St. Paul’s website and in the Sunday Bulletin for more details, but here is a little bit of information:
2/3/19-Stages of Faith Development, taught by Rev. J. Carr Holland, III. The class will discuss how we grow faith in children and in ourselves throughout our life stages
2/10/19-Parenting Through the Stages, taught by Rev. J. Carr Holland, III. The class will explore how parents can actively assist our children in maturing in their faith
2/17/19-Finding God in Everyday Life: Celtic Spirituality, taught by Lanny Wase. This class will explore some tools available to adults that wish to deepen their faith
2/24/19-Young Adults and Faith, taught by Dr. Sam Laurent (Episcopal Campus Minister, Duke University) This class will explore ways faith is nurtured in older teens and young adults
2/24/19-Parent Communion Class with Rev. George Adamik
3/3/19-Finding God in Everyday Life: Spiritual Direction, taught by Carolyn Edge, Spiritual Director. This class will discuss how adults can seek guidance to mature in faith
Again, these are very brief descriptions, but these classes sound great! So, bring the kids to Sunday School and then head over to the Chapel for these awesome classes!
