Sunday Adult Forum Schedule 10 a.m. (in the Refectory unless noted)
Sunday, October 4: Invite-Welcome-Connect “Inviting, welcoming, and connecting persons in our congregations are vital steps for building healthy, vibrant and growing churches. Mary Parmer developed these materials as a congregational development consultant and they include assessment tools and creative, concrete resources to form a systematic and intentional newcomer ministry.” Curate T.J. Freeman recently attended Invite•Welcome•Connect training. He will share lessons learned from this experience and from the past year of engaging in newcomer ministry at Calvary Episcopal Church. The conversation will explore best practices for inviting, welcoming, connecting with new members in our community of disciples of Jesus Christ. Sunday, October 11: Journey to Generosity Michelle and Mark Rust will provide a summary of the upcoming Stewardship campaign. Jonathon will then follow-up with a discussion of the current status of Calvary and his vision for the future.
Sunday, October 18: Poetry Out Loud Join us as the Poetry Out Loud readers present their favorite short poems and engage in a conversation about them. The eclectic selection will include poems by Robert Browning, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robert Herrick, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and others. Copies of the poems and brief biographies of the poets will be available. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
NOTE: Christian Education programs at Calvary are designed to reflect the interests and concerns of the parish. From time to time, changes may be made in response to emerging topics or needs. Watch the bulletin and Agape for current information.
