Sunday Morning Adult Formation

Mar. 3

Every Groundhog Has His Day!
In Phil Long's previous adult formation we explored how the power of death wires us to various behaviors and reactions, ending with the question:  How would we act if we truly believed that in our baptism we are all already dead.  In this session we will explore the power of death and freedom from it using clips from the 1993 movie "Groundhog Day."  In light of that parable, we will consider what Jesus meant when he said "Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."  And what Paul meant when he wrote "For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want."

Mar. 17

When the Saints go Marching In!
In keeping with our theme “Faith is a Verb,” we will start with St. Patrick’s example about how to be a “faithful actor.” We will explore the saints, their lives, actions and how they may have influenced how we operate in the world. We will also look at how saints become saints and how they are added to the Episcopal church calendar.

Mar. 31 & Apr. 7

Mortal Pilgrimage
What is the point of the Christian life? What does it mean to die a 'good death?' Join us for a lively, two-part discussion series on Christian death, dying, and the mortal pilgrimage led by our seminarian, Brandon McGinnis. This is an opportunity to explore the reality of death and our Christian hope as we journey with Jesus toward the cross in this Lenten season.


Bible and Book Study

There is a regular Bible and Book study meeting on Wednesday mornings beginning at 10:15. The first 45 minutes are devoted to the scripture appointed for the following Sunday. The second half of the meeting is focused on other literature chosen by the participants. New members are welcome any time. Please join us.


Education Classes for Children and Youth

9:15 a.m. Pre-K – 12th grade

Holy Cross provides religious education to all children and youth on Sunday mornings. Sunday School is held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. most Sundays September through May. Parents are asked to register their children in September at the beginning of the school year, but children are welcome in Sunday School at any time.

Throughout the year, children are invited to attend Children's Chapel during the 10:30 a.m. service. Children's Chapel is an age-appropriate exploration of the Gospel. Children rejoin their parents for communion.
