Christian formation for adults at Emmanuel takes place in a wide variety of contexts. We believe that growth in Christ is holistic and never ending.
The Book of Common Prayer, which lays out a whole-life spiritual program, is the main vehicle of formation for Episcopalians. Intentional and active participation in its entire range of liturgies provides an immersion in the Christian narrative and an exposure, over time, to all the main themes of Holy Scripture. We are especially privileged at Emmanuel to be able to offer public Daily Offices, one of the most powerful worship tools in the Anglican tradition; for those seeking to go deeper in Christ, a commitment to pray the Office in some regular rhythm is a wonderful place to begin.
During the program year, we also offer deliberate gatherings focused on one aspect or another of adult formation. Check the church calendar for current details, or consult examples of past formation highlights.
