St. Columbaís sees Christian education as an essential part of its mission. We want our kids to become well-informed believers who will share the Christian faith with others. Many adult parishioners also find their spiritual life and understanding is strengthened by an ongoing investigation of the Bible and the Christian story, through the classes, book studies, and forums that are offered throughout the year.
LISTEN * LEARN * LIVE
Sunday School meets at 9:45 am in the Parish Hall. We use the curriculum for the Episcopal Church, Weaving God's Promises, which provides activities including arts, crafts, dramas, games and more to reinforce the lessons of the day. Come join the fun, bring a friend! Children (ages 4 - 11) join their families for Communion in the Church.
St. Columba's Youth Group (SCYG)
The parish is working on reviving our Youth Group and seeking ways to involve adults with youth programs. Youth Group (ages 13 Ė 18) helps with the childrenís programs at the English Garden Party and of course, the annual Christmas Eve pageant, as well as hosts events to raise money for their outreach programs.
We encourage all to grow their faith at St. Columba's through a variety of
educational opportunities offered throughout the year, many of them
initiated and led by parishioners.
Currently, there are two ongoing lay-led groups - a weekly Early Bird men's
Bible Study group and an afternoon women's spiritual study group.
On Sunday mornings, time has been set aside as Reflect & Connect (9:00am) -
a newly created block of time that is used by our rector to explore issues
raised by the weekly Scripture readings, current events and to listen to
Advent and Lent offer a special opportunity for spiritual growth. During
those seasons, the rector leads a multi-week program, often using a book as
a springboard for discussion. These meetings follow the 5:30pm Wednesday
Eucharist service and begin in fellowship with a potluck dinner and then
conversation. Parishioners enjoy the opportunity to get to know one another
better in this casual setting.
Men's Bible Study
A group of guys meets in the Parish Hall Wednesdays at 7:00 a.m. for the
Menís Bible Study. They all swear itís worth getting up that early.
