Christian Formation

Spiritual Development

Spiritual development is an important part of our life together as we seek to grow into the fullness of discipleship in Christ. We are open in our questioning, seeking ways to connect with God that make sense for our time while also respecting tradition.

  • Lectionary Discussion - a weekly gathering to discuss the appointed Sunday biblical texts and their meaning for our lives. Sundays 8:30 a.m. All are welcome. (In-Person and on Zoom)

  • Children's Chapel - 1st and 3rd Sundays during the adult sermon time.

  • Holy Hikes- Vermont - a monthly (or so) easy hike for those seeking to find God in nature through shared prayer and companionship. On hiatus.

  • Pilgrimage in the Holy Land- The Episcopal Diocese of Vermont is sponsoring a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and we invite friends from New England and beyond to join us. The pilgrimage is to take place November 25 – December 5, 2023. Amma Kim will lead it with her husband, Fred Moser, and local guides, Canon Iyad Qumri and Rami Qumri.
