Christian Formation Offerings
Bible Study is held Thursday evenings at 7:30pm via Zoom. The link is emailed each week as part of the church e-news (The Happening).
We occasionally offer special formation opportunities during Advent and Lent.
Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which the candidates "express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop" (BCP, p. 860). At St. Tim's, cofirmands are often 9th or 10th graders who feel ready to explore this commitment.
The program of instruction typically begins in September. Over the course of the year the kids study their faith tradition (and others), do community service, raise money to combat world hunger at the 30 Hour Famine overnight retreat, and enjoy getting to know each other as they prepare to formally affirm their baptismal vows though confirmation.
Confirmation classes run on an as-needed basis. Interested in confirmation for you or your child? Contact the office for more information.
"Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 80,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together." - from the EfM website.
EfM is currently on hiatus. Contact the office for more information.
