Adult Christian Education
Worship is the heart of our faith. Continued learning (formation) is the backbone of our faith. St. Bede’s Adult Formation embodies three elements: In-depth study of Scriptures; Exploration of our history and theology shaping our lives; Opportunities to put faith into action. Many of our programs include a shared meal, intended to build community and to learn from one another while growing in knowledge and love of God.

Education for Ministry is a powerful combination of scripture, worship, theology and theological reflection which helps us develop the skills we need to better discern our call to ministry in a group setting. The 4-year program covers the Hebrew scriptures, New Testament, Church History and Theology. Each year is independent, so you only sign up for one year at at time. Groups begin meeting in September. Registration starts now!
