Christian Education Ministry
 
The Christian Education at Saint Michael and All Angels is an important part of our community life. A mixed offering of programs provides opportunities for everyone to grow in their Christian faith through didactic study and hands on learning.
 
 
 
The Sunday Forums, which are held between the two services each Sunday morning (9:30-10:15) from January through April in the Parish Hall, are well attended. These Forums focus on a common theme which addresses subjects appropriate for Christian living in the world. 
 
2019 Theme:
"CHALLENGES TO LIVING THE SCRIPTURE: PAST  ~  PRESENT  ~  FUTURE"
How do we transform ancient scripture into relevant guideposts for the 21st century?  How do we take the stories, poems, historical facts, and parables of the Bible and wrestle with them in ways that guide and challenge us to be better people of God?  All of scripture - inspired by God and written and rewritten by hundreds over the centuries - possesses elements of moral and ethical judgment and guidance.  The past may seem foreign to us at times but it is OUR past, the stories are OUR challenges, andwe need to see God’s powerful Spirit still working among us in the present and in the future.  Even as Jacob’s dreams challenged him in his time to see where the Lord was leading him, he awoke and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”
 
 
Come and be challenged!!  
 
A time for questions and answers gives the large audience an opportunity to be heard and to have their concerns addressed.
