Our growth in the knowledge and love of the Lord continues throughout this life and into the next. At St. Mark’s, we have several opportunities for adults to engage in their own spiritual growth.
The Forum Hour (Sundays at 9 a.m.)
In between services on Sunday mornings during the school year, a few dozen people gather in the Undercroft below the church to learn from and teach one another. Class topics range from strategies for interpreting the Bible to studies on prayer and worship to living the Christian life outside the walls of the church. A mix of lectures and small group discussions, as well as visits from guest speakers, mark the style of the Forum Hour. Click here to download the fall 2019 Forum Hour Schedule.
Theology Sandwiched In (2nd Wed. of the Month, 12 p.m.)
The St. Mark’s book group, Theology Sandwiched In, meets once a month (except in the summer) to discuss recent and classic works of fiction, spiritual writings, and memoirs. Bring a sandwich and an appetite for great conversation.
Our reading selection for November and December 2019 is
The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr.
The Bible, In Depth (Thursdays at 8:15 a.m.)
