Spiritual Growth

in community and individually.

…one of his disciples said to him, "Lord teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us. And do not bring us to the time of trial." Luke 11:1–4

Episcopalians are always seeking to grow spiritually.  One of the main ways we do this is through our worship.  Guided by the Book of Common Prayer, a document we share with Anglicans throughout the world, we are formed by worship each Sunday morning in a Eucharistic (Communion) service with a sermon.  The Book of Common Prayer is also available for individual devotion through the Daily Office, a collection of daily prayers and Bible study.

 

Our parish also offers educational opportunities to expand one's knowledge and understanding of scripture, prayer, and service to God and the Church. Various small groups have been formed to assist each other in spiritual growth and affirming that the Christian walk is meant to be in community. Helping, nurturing, serving, teaching, and reaching each other in Agape love is found most readily within these groups.
