Adults

All of our offerings for adults are open to visitors every week! No advanced registration needed unless otherwise noted below. One-time offerings for adults may also be found in News & Events.

Discipleship Groups

These 5-week group series offer an overview to our vision of being rooted in discipleship at St. George's, briefly exploring each of the 5 topics that may later be studied in depth. In a small group setting, you'll be led through scripture readings, discussion, and prayer centered around Attentiveness, Rhythm, Relationships, Leadership, and Mission — each following the model that Jesus gives us.

Discipleship Groups are led by church members and meet throughout the year. More information and group resources can be found online here.

The Generosity Syndrome

June 3 - 17  |  9:00am

We often hear about the three T’s – time, talent, and treasure – and the importance of all three in our Christian lives. Stewardship is the management of the glory of God in our lives by the right use of these gifts that he has entrusted to us. Join us in June as we talk about principles and practicalities of good stewardship in our everyday lives, and what it means to God, St. George’s, and us as individuals.

Young Adult Sunday School

Sundays this Fall | 10:05am

Rooms 210 and 211

Led by the Rev. Sam Adams

The book of Acts succinctly describes the heart of the early church’s life when it says this of Jesus’s followers: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Sounds pretty basic, but those things are profound precisely in their simplicity. And that’s what we’ll do in the Young Adult Sunday School class this fall: we’ll gather together weekly for some teaching, discussion, fellowship, and prayer just before (or after) we break bread together in the Eucharist. Nothing too fancy, just a great opportunity to connect with other young adults, to build relationships with one another as we seek to grow as Christ’s followers. Join us! (Note: the term “young adult” is really a self-designating term with not much clear definition…the point being, if you want to join us, you’re welcome!)

Psalms: The Best-Loved Book of the Bible

Led by the Rev. Roger Senechal

January 3 - May 30 | 10:45 - Noon or 6:30 - 8:00pm in Dandridge A

Of the Book of Psalms it has been written, "Psalms is the hymnal of Israelite worship and the Bible's book of personal devotions. In them we not only find expression of all the emotions of life but also some of the most profound teaching in the entire Bible ... The Psalms get us praying when we don't feel like it, and they train us in prayers that are honest and right."

Men's Bible Study
