Adding depth to the Start From Zero conversations, this year our Adult Forum will be answering the question, What is the church? Nate Warne is coordinating presentations by many people on various subjects related to the core theme. Adult Forum meets from 9:15-10 a.m. on the third floor of Saint Margaret's House (located at the back of our Lafayette Boulevard parking lot). Visit the Saint James Adult Forum facebook page for additional information.
Note: Classrooms at First Presbyterian are located on the first floor. Please follow the directional signs.
Brotherhood of Saint Andrew
The Brotherhood of Saint Andrew is a worldwide ministry to men and youth in the Episcopal Church/Anglican Communion and beyond. Its vision is to inspire, empower, and equip men and boys to fulfill the Great Commission through the threefold disciplines of prayer, study, and service. The Brotherhood of Saint Andrew meets as announced.
Generally speaking, choirs are the longest-running and most visible small group in any church. Choir members offer an invaluable gift to the community of faith by shaping and leading worship, while in the process, enjoying fellowship and spiritual kinship with others who find joy in singing. Dr. Steven Wietstock leads choir rehearsals in the Sanctuary at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and 9:15 a.m. on Sundays. No audition is necessary, just a desire to make a joyful noise to the Lord!
Note: During the renovation of Cathedral House, Wednesday choir rehearsals will be held in the chapel at First Presbyterian.
Daughters of the King
The Daughters of the King is a worldwide ministry to women and girls in the Episcopal Church/Anglican Communion who desire a closer walk with the Lord. They are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. Daughters are all at different stages of their Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where they are on their sacred journeys, the primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others. The Daughters of the King meet at 9:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month.
Ecumenical Bible Study
The Ecumenical Bible Study is a monthly Bible study comprised primarily of members of the Cathedral of Saint James, St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, and Kern Road Mennonite Church.
Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education through Sewanee 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.
Resolved to learn more about the Bible this year? Interested in getting to know some of the wonderful people at the Cathedral a little bit better? Come share faith and fellowship at Raising Cane! This group for Senior Citizens (or whomever) meets at 10:15 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. We dig into the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday and reflect upon what it means in our lives. All are invited (but by no means required!) to bring a treat to share.
Small groups are open to all. Times and locations vary. Contact the Cathedral office for additional information.
