Adult Education

Our mission is to comfort, challenge and inspire a growing community of people in search of meaning and hope in their lives, and one of the avenues we provide to foster this exploration is through our numerous programs, classes, retreats and formation opportunities.

We strive to provide impactful offerings that will not only foster spiritual enrichment and growth, but also provide a basic theological foundation off of which to expand. The below offerings are your open invitation to join us, wherever you might be on your path, and whatever your religious background may be. We welcome all people, all questions, all doubts and all insights. Join us. 

For those of you who are looking for a great place to educate your children, we encourage you to check out our Children Youth and Family Ministries as well as The St. Bartholomew Community Preschool.

The Forum

Each Sunday at 10:00 am, The Forum helps us further connect faith with life. Programs range from clergy teaching and expository Bible study to explorations of theology, social concerns and philosophical questions. 

Watch The Forum live on our website, or join the conversation live on Facebook or YouTube where you can post your questions for our speaker in the comments during the live stream. Visit our The Forum page for upcoming schedule and past recordings.

NEW SEASON: ADULT FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES

"How Can We Know the Way?" - The Practice of Theological Reflection
Tuesdays, August 3-24, 7-8 pm

Theological Reflection begins with our lived experience and connects that experience to our Christian tradition. It can help us to gain insight on the meaning at the heart of our experiences. In this four-part class led by the Reverend Meredith Ward, we will explore different methods of theological reflection and see how we can use these practices in our own lives.
