Adults


Fellowship


Please join us for fellowship time following the 10:15 AM Sunday service.  This is a great opportunity to meet newcomers and connect with one another.  From September to June, we have coffee hour in the South Reception Room. During the summer, we gather in the Butler Courtyard for summer punch.


Adult Education


 Adult Christian Formation at All Saints’ encompasses a wide variety of activities and opportunities:

Adult Forum

During the church school year, a Sunday morning Adult Forum presents speakers on diverse topics and offers space for lively discussion. Forums typically last 45 minutes from 9:00AM to 10:00AM during the academic year and feature a variety of speakers on topics ranging from scripture and theology, to church history, to mission trip reports, to current issues of concern in the Episcopal Church.

The Prayer Circle


The Prayer Circle is a women’s prayer and support group which meets the 2nd and 4th Monday in the Parish Library.  The circle begins with a brief check-in where each member may speak about where she is in her spiritual journey, her joys/concerns/prayer requests followed by a 45-minute period of silence.  During the silence, each one is free to pray (in silence) or to meditate in whatever form she chooses.  The period of silence may be preceded by a reading and/or concluded with a prayer.  Usually, an informal period of talking ends the evening.

This group is non-denominational and open to anyone.  However, because of the personal and intimate nature of the sharing, the building of trust over time, and the sitting in silence for 45 minutes it may not be right for everyone.  The group is limited to 9 members.  For more information, please contact Linda at LABwerk@comcast.net.

 


Centering Prayer Group


Centering Prayer Group @ ASCMargaret Bushnell, and Sandy and Jack Belmont are convening a Centering Prayer Group that will meet in the Parish Library on Friday mornings 10:30-Noon.  Centering Prayer is a form of meditation that is easily learned.  No prior experience is needed.  The exercise involves a 20-minute silent “sit.”  The “sit” is surrounded by an opening prayer, a reading from scripture and ended with a reading and short reflection of an agreed upon book or spiritual article.  Our goal is to start promptly and end promptly during our time together.

If you are interested in joining us, please give Jack and Sandy (609-466-1665) or Margaret Bushnell (609-716-0947) a call.
