Study Opportunities

Christian Formation 

Our weekly Bible study, or Christian Formation, is held on Sunday mornings before Mass. We will offer three groups of study that will meet from 10:00am-10:45am prior to Mass. Please see below for more information.

Pre-school: Ages 3-5

The 3-5 year olds will begin the year studying the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the canticles that are sung during Mass each week. Our lesson will consist of previewing the Gospel Lesson for that Sunday beginning in Advent. We will travel throughout the church calendar, learning each season and its associated color. It will be taught by Trish Miller and she will be assisted by Annie Miller.

 

Grade School: Ages 6+

Christian Formation for the grade school class (ages 6 and up) will focus on the Ten Commandments, especially on what they teach us about God and how they form our Christian lives. Starting in Advent we will examine the life of our Lord Jesus Christ in the gospel accounts and how he calls us to be his followers.

 

Adults:

Christian Formation for the adult class will study books of the Bible exegetically. If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Paul!

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap is a monthly book club that normally meets on the first Sunday of the month at Macado’s in  Blacksburg (922 University Blvd). Over dinner or drinks Father Miller will lead a discussion on the book selected for that month. The first Theology on Tap will be Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 5:00pm. The group will discuss the book, On Social Justice, St. Basil the Great. You can order yours on Amazon. We invite you to come and fellowship with us and enjoy a captivating discussion. 

Catechesis 

Approximately twice a year, Father Miller begins a weekly catechesis class for those who are interested in joining our church or simply learning more about the basics of Anglicanism. The next class will begin Sunday, September 12, 2021 and will meet in the education room from 10:00 am to 10:45 pm prior to Mass. The group will also meet on Wednesday evenings following Life Together. Catechesis will conclude prior to the Bishop’s visit on November 14, 2021 for those that are ready to be confirmed and/or received into membership.
