From book groups to Bible studies, St. Monica’s offers a range of weekly learning opportunities for its adult members.

Education for Ministry [EfM]

This group meets on Tuesdays from 7-9:30 p.m., beginning in September.  EfM is a program of Adult Christian Formation developed and sponsored by the School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee.  It is a four-year program, with registration taking place each year.  The cost is $350, to cover books and materials.  Our group has members of several parishes, mentored by trained EfM graduates.

Wednesdays at Six

All are invited to join us at 6 pm for dinner.  The program begins about 6:30 pm.  The topics are varied and always interesting – chosen by the group; we often use a CD series or movies to spark learning and discussion.

Bible Studies

Men’s Bible Study – Men of St. Monica’s and friends gather at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, with optional breakfast out afterwards.  This group uses the lessons for the upcoming Sunday as their study texts.  All men are welcome!

Friday Morning Bible Study – Our Friday morning Bible study is held at 9:00 am.  Attendees study a selected  book or set of passages over a period of several weeks, learning historical background and context along with the message covered. All are welcome! The group begins with Morning Prayer at 8:30 am and then has a light breakfast.
