Here at All Saints’, there are many opportunities in education. Some of our ministries in education include:
Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 80,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together. All Saints’ has long been an active member of the EfM program. For more information, please email us at email@example.com
All Saints’ Classes
Throughout the program year, All Saints’ offers education and fellowship classes, most often on Wednesday nights. Normally twice a year, these programs seek to help people explore their spiritual beliefs and practices through a small group-type atmosphere. If you would like to learn more please visit our calendar for upcoming classes. If you wish to get more involved in our class program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bible Swim is a year-long plus, program to read the entire Bible. This interactive project includes commentary and a chance for people to explore scripture together. The first run of this program finished earlier this year, but you can still visit the website, www.bibleswim.com for the reading schedule. If you wish to be informed about any upcoming Bible Swim activities please subscribe to the email newsletter on the webpage.
The mail team is an important ministry and a great way to volunteer at All Saints’. As the name suggests, the team is responsible for helping prepare and mail out important documents to the congregation. If you are interested in helping out, please email us at email@example.com
Led by Barbara Weiler, the meditation group meets seasonally at various times in the year, exploring the benefits and techniques of meditation. Come learn ways to still the mind and open the heart to God’s loving presence within. Please check the calendar for upcoming classes.
