Worshiping together is our primary means of adult formation. Through prayers, psalms, and hymns, through scripture and preaching, we are drawn more deeply into the life of faith – but there are many other opportunities in our common life to grow as Christian people.
In the 2021-2022 program year, Pr. Adrianne offered Book Group discussions on The Cure for Sorrow: a Book of Blessings for Times of Grief by Jan Richardson and The Rapture Exposed by Barbara Rossung. Look for upcoming Book Groups in the Weekly Announcements.
Adult Forums are held on Sunday mornings during the education hour throughout the academic year and are considerably varied in character. We’ve offered Living the Questions and Jesus Redux series, poetry readings, discussions about current issues, and guest speakers from local nonprofits, to name just a few. These programs might be led by the pastor, by St. Thomas laity, or by people from the community. Watch the Weekly Announcements for information about new Adult Forum opportunities.
Lutherans of St. Thomas meet once a month for the Women’s Bible Study, but men can come too. We will always meet on the second Sunday of the month at 9:45 a.m, after the first service. We’ll sit about six feet apart, with masks on. The leader brings paper copies of the study and Bibles. If you wish to bring your own Bible, that is great too.
Our parish library is open whenever the building is open. You are welcome to come and read or to bring a project of your own to work on. The sanctuary is open whenever the building is open. The Prayer Garden is a quiet, lovely place for reflection and prayer.
