Adult Education

The following is a listing of some our adult education opportunities:

God Groups -God Groups provide an opportunity for parishioners to meet in Small Groups to wrestle with questions and issues found in Scripture, deepening community and sharing their sacred stories. One of our God Groups has been meeting bi-weekly over lunch for several years. This is a wonderful way to build and deepen meaningful relationships.

Women’s Retreat - In the spring, 25 - 30 women spend a weekend at the Diocese’s Bishop’s Ranch in Napa Valley. Time is shared in prayer, conversation, hiking, art projects and just having fun together. Our All-Parish Retreat in late fall is a truly Intergenerational event, with infants, toddlers, and older children joining adults of all ages as we play and pray together at Bishop’s Ranch.

Bible Study - Members of our parish gather seasonally on Wednesday mornings for fellowship and discussion as we learn about the context of books of Scripture and their application to our lives. Truly Episcopalian in tone, we welcome a variety of approaches to Scripture. You are welcome to join us on a drop in basis or as a regular. During certain seasons of the year, we also offer Bible Study programs in the evenings, led by our Young Adults.
