ADULT FORMATION

Our current Sunday school offerings, workshops, and retreats are listed below.

Adult Formation — Fall 2021

Due to the uncertainty of COVID, we will be offering Hybrid Adult Formation this Fall. Sunday Mornings you can either attend in-person with a mask in the Parish Hall or watch from home on Zoom. For those watching on Zoom: You do not have to register to attend & the link will be the same every week. We’ll also record each Sunday morning offering so that you can watch later in the week if you’d like to. These videos will be password protected and are not meant for general public consumption.

Honoring Advent in Our Very Full Lives

Led by The Rev. Caroline Vogel
December 5

           The hustle and bustle of December doesn’t exactly align with the season of waiting in which Advent is really about. Join Caroline as she helps us navigate the season in ways that take into account all the anticipatory joy of Christmas while also making space to honor the quieter side of Advent.

Best Loved Christmas Carols: The Story Behind The Music

Led By The Rev. Christopher Hogin
December 12

Each year we envelope ourselves in the holiday spirit through the joyful tunes of Christmas carols—but what do we really know about them? Many of our best loved songs, both religious and secular emerged from a place of deep theological pain and loss only to be transformed into melodies of mirth and celebration. Join The Reverend Christopher Hogin as he shares the story behind some of our most beloved Christmas carols, followed by a parish sing-along with piano music. You will never listen to these carols the same again once you know the story behind them!

An Adult Formation Series starting Sunday, January 9th! 

 

The Adult Formation Team has designed an opportunity using a model called Living Room Conversations to gather us in small groups to share openly and honestly about topics we normally would avoid. We’ll have the chance to share authentically from our hearts the experiences that have shaped our lives and beliefs. Everyone is welcome at The Table; this is a chance to experience how real and true that invitation actually is.

When we share our stories with each other, we’re also sharing the Holy Spark. 

Come and nourish the need to be seen, understood and connected in loving community. Come and share & receive the Holy Spark!

 Each individual who wants to participate in Living Room Conversations needs to register. Please register HERE

 

 If you’d like to learn more about Living Room Conversations, you can go to their website: www.livingroomconversations.org 

 If you have any questions and/or would like to train to be a facilitator, please email Rev. Caroline: caroline@knoxvilleascension.org
