Christian Formation for Adults

Book group and Bible study offerings include:

Praxis on Tuesdays mornings

On Tuesday mornings at 7:30 am, we gather in the church office at 2161 Mass Ave. on the corner of Milton St., for an hour of "spiritual practice" or "praxis." After opening with a brief time of prayer and praise, we focus on an exploration of the coming Sunday's Gospel lesson. We use the technique of lectio divina, or spiritual reading, letting God’s Word address our lives and listening to each other share what God’s Word says to them. This is a drop-in event; no preparation is necessary.

Sunday Morning Bible Study 

Thousands of years and countless cultural barriers separate us from the worlds that created and preserved our scriptures. Yet it is the same story of the Holy Spirit that begins in the Bible and continues today that binds us together with God's people of the past (and future). Join Judy Gay, Reed Carlson & Olivia Hamilton for Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM in the Vestry room off our side chapel to learn and experience more of what makes scripture so fascinatingly foreign yet fortuitously familiar. Whether you've read a lot of the Bible or you're just starting out, our meetings are for you.

Education for Ministry on Monday evenings 

The Alewife Deanery "Education for Ministry" (EfM) group meeting time is Monday 6:00 - 8:30 PM at the Church of the Good Shepherd at 9 Russell Avenue, Watertown. If you are interested in joining us, our next season will begin September 2016.
