During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Winter-Spring 2020 Formation and Worship Offerings Schedule of Sunday Parish Hall Forum guest speakers has changed. We look forward to welcoming our local and non-local guests in virtual and other ways during or after this temporary season. Meanwhile, please explore our Virtual Offerings.
Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. It is about growing in discipleship and discovering how faith is relevant to all aspects of our lives. At GSL, we strive to offer a menu of learning choices in large and small group settings led both by clergy and lay ministers. Classes for adults are held in various locations, including the Parish Hall (Trezevant), Peete Room (LeMaster Street door entrance), The Chapel, Parlor (Lounge), McClure Hall, and Room 212 (beyond Trezevant in the Evans Building). Youth and children gather in designated rooms located on the basement level of the Parish House. Specific locations are posted in the weekly eNews, worship service leaflet, and on information tables. Normally, we gather for Sunday morning classes from 9:15 until 10:10 a.m. Meanwhile, please join us virtually for formation offerings.
Children and Youth class information is available here. During the temporary season of the COVID-19 pandemic, contact Director of Youth Formation Amzie Williams (awilliams [at] gracestlukes [dot] org) or Director of Children's Formation Sharon Campbell (scampbell [at] gracestlukes [dot] org) to learn about virtual or in-home offerings.
