Education and exploration are part of our mission and we offer a range of classes throughout the year. Take a class or attend a lecture or program with our diverse, open-minded community and see where it takes you!
Other opportunities include our Forum lecture series and thought-provoking sermons by our clergy and guest preachers, also available as podcasts on iTunes.
Our calendar page shows current offerings: book studies, spiritual practices, and preparation for baptism, confirmation or reception in the Episcopal Church.

Sundays, June 14 – August 2 (No class on July 5) • 4:30 – 5:30 pm • ONLINE
Join our Sunday afternoon book study group online as they engage with That All Shall Be Saved: Heaven, Hell & Universal Salvation, by celebrated author David Bentley Hart. Hart makes the argument – from the earliest Christian writings, scripture and logic that nearly two millennia of dogmatic tradition have misled followers of Christianity on the crucial matter of Universal Salvation. Delve into the discussion as we consider those theologians who, according to the author, saw the Christian story more clearly and who came nearer the heart of the gospel: Gregory, Origen, Evagrius and George MacDonald.
