Adult Education

Our Church Family offers various opportunities for ongoing adult spiritual education:

BIBLE STUDIES

We have two year-round Bible Studies, where we study various books of Holy Scripture, learning how to read the Bible and understanding how to apply its message and lessons in our daily lives. We have a weekly Bible Study EVERY WEDNESDAY 10:30-11:45am and EVERY SATURDAY MORNING 6:30am-7:45am. We are presently finishing up studying 50 Stories from the Old Testament.

TWO ANNUAL RETREATS

We bring in exceptional guest speakers for our annual LENTEN RETREAT (typically held within the first four weeks of Great Lent) and CHRISTMAS RETREAT (held during the first weeks of December). Our speakers last year were Fr. Maximos Simonopetritis (a monk from Simonpetro Monastery on Mt. Athos) and international author Klaus Kenneth.

ORTHODOXY 101 CLASSES

Twice a year we offer an 8 Class Series of Lessons on the Basics of Orthodox Christianity. This class is offered primarily for those who are interested in learning about Orthodoxy and possibly converting to the Orthodox Church. Some baptised Orthodox Christians, however, attend the class to simply learn more about their faith.

OCCASIONAL GUEST SPEAKERS

Throughout the year, we will bring in various guest speakers to offer a sermon on a Sunday or a talk on a special topic at various times. Recently we had Fr. Dean Borgmann to offer a talk on "Parenting Teenagers". We have also had speakers on "Understanding Children With Autism."

MONTHLY BULLETIN "THE LIGHT"

Our Monthly Bulletin The Light is a 24 page newsletter with inspiring and educational articles, sermons, stories and anecdotes.

Throughout the New Testament, the early Christians use to call every believer a saint. Why? Because it was a reminder that every baptized believer is suppose to live a holy life.
