Adult Forums take place Sundays in Shears Hall following the 9:00 am service.


Stewardship Forum

October 1
Led by Jay Howell and Katherine Armstrong

On our annual Stewardship Sunday, come and hear parishioners share their experiences at St. John’s Church. We look forward to an exciting year of mission and ministry at St. John’s in 2018. 


Faithful Dissent:
Loving Our Way into a Brighter Future

October 8
Led by the Reverend Kristine Johnson

Continuing a discussion begun last year in Kristine Johnson’s presentation on Bridging the Political Divide, this forum will focus on how we can live together as a faithful, loving community of Christians while also disagreeing on particular issues.


Find Jesus Everywhere:
Stories of Mission and Transformation

October 15
Led by participants in the 2017 New York
Dominican Republic Mission Trips

Listen to stories by those who went on mission trips this past summer to New York City and the Dominican Republic. Learn how they were transformed by having their lives touched and by touching the lives of others. This is also a chance to ask questions and explore how you might be a participant in 2018.


Fellowship Sunday

October 22

We will resume our fourth Sunday free from adult programming where you can socialize with others during the Christian education hour. Please bring a healthy snack to share.


Reformation Sunday

October 29
Led by Hannah Matis, PhD

Please join us on this 500th anniversary of the day that Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Thesis to the church door in Wittenburg. Hannah Matis from Virginia Theological Seminary will discuss the European Reformation and how it directly affected our own Anglican tradition. This will be an interactive forum with plenty of time for questions and answers.
