Our Church Family offers various opportunities for ongoing adult spiritual education:
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 THURSDAY EVENING 6:30-7:45pm at the home of Fr Luke and Pres. Faith. 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, monastics, clergy, professors, and lay leaders to lead a retreat, to offer a sermon on a Sunday or a talk on a special topic at various times.
