Writing in Response to Scripture

Education for Ministry
The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to carry out that ministry. During the Service of Confirmation we ask God to “Renew in these your servants the covenant you made with them at Baptism. Send them forth in the power of the Spirit to perform the service you set before them.” EfM offers an opportunity to discover how to respond to the call to Christian service. Monday mornings and Monday evenings. Monday Morning Group meets at the home of the Rev. Holly Gloff.
Theology On Tap for Youth Adults
Small Group Formation & Fellowship
Love, a Guide for Prayer
Led by Sally Norton, St. Michael’s small group facilitator
In continuing our search for “God in the Ordinary” a new small group is forming as we read Love: A Guide for Prayer, by Jacqueline Syrup Bergan and Sister Marie Schwan. This is the first in a series (Take and Receive) of five books, using The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The book covers a six-week period, each week containing five daily Scripture readings, a commentary for each reading, and a suggested approach to prayer for the day. Prayer methods used include meditation, contemplation, centering prayer, prayer word, meditative reading, journaling and repetition.
If you are interested, please contact Sally Norton.
