Adult Formation

Each year, we offer opportunities for adults in our community to learn more about the Christian faith and to deepen their spiritual life. Below are the most recent offerings. Some gatherings are offered in person while others are offered via Zoom. Meeting times and dates may change due to scheduling conflicts that arise, so feel free to contact the church office to confirm ( or 301-864-8880). All are welcome to attend and participate. 

Spirituality Discussion Group

Each fall, Fr. Tim, with the assistance of members of the congregation, gathers together a group of adults who are interested in meeting monthly for ten months to learn more about their Christian faith and to deepen their relationship with God. The monthly meetings include readings from theologians and Christian leaders, group discussions, prayer, and reflection on Scripture, and the topics covered include the nature of God, the sacraments, the role of the Bible in our daily life, different approaches to prayer, and our call to social justice. For individuals who are new to the Christian faith, this experience provides the necessary preparation for baptism. Please contact Fr. Tim ( or 301-864-8880) if you have questions or would like to take part the next time this group experience is offered.

The Origins of Our Worship/Liturgy in the Episcopal Church & Anglican Christianity

As the Parish Choir prepares for our next pilgrimage (Salisbury 2023), we are exploring the history and origins of our worship and liturgy in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion, with particular attention given to the historic influence of Salisbury Cathedral in the development of our liturgy. All are welcome to attend and participate in this class, regardless of whether or not you plan to take part in the pilgrimage. Please join us on Thursday evenings in October, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., in the Parish Hall. Pizza and salad will be provided.
