Deepening Our Discipleship: Growing in Faith and Friendship
Jesus used a vital and important word for those who followed him: Disciple. The word simply means learner, student, apprentice. Discipleship, that lifelong process of growing and learning, has to do with everyday matters and ordinary challenges. It keeps us thinking about trying to live faithfully in the culture in which we live. And it has to do with deepening our friendship with fellow learners. On this page and throughout the website, note significant, even life-changing offerings for children, youth, and adult disciples.

The Book of Genesis: In the Beginning, the End
Led by The Rev. R. Leigh Spruill
This year-long bible study will examine how the purposes of God are present in the very first pages of the Bible. Genesis is a book of origins, revealing the nature of the world and what it is to be human. It is the fundamental text for Christian theology and the founding story of western culture. It is also an epic of desire, of humanity's insatiable and ultimately suicidal desire to have the world on our own terms. But the Book of Genesis is even more a story of God's desire, an unshakable yearning after humanity that will not be thwarted by the finitude of creation or the fallenness of Adam. As such, Genesis is the beginning of the gospel.
Led by the Rev. Malone Gilliam and Marcy & Seawell Brandau

ETC: Ethics, Theology and Conversation
Facilitated by Shirley Hercules
ETC – Ethics, Theology, and Conversation – is a round table, open discussion of theological, spiritual, and ethical issues. Each year a topic is chosen, based either on materials collected and presented by members, lecture videos, or a book. Examples of discussion topics that have been covered include religion as it relates to science, church/state issues, terrorism and God’s will, and most recently the Reformation. We are considering a unit on meditation for the fall.
Sitting with God
Facilitated by the Rev. Roger Senechal
Sitting with God is an uninterrupted, personal time for you and God to enjoy each other’s company. Conversation starters are available in the Chapel or you can bring your own Bible, devotional, journal, or other spiritual book. There is no praying out loud. The only time voices are heard is at the closing prayer. So come and enjoy His company!
