Adult Education

The Mission of the St. Francis Adult Education program is to promote the awakening of the divine spirit within us as individuals and as a congregation.


To this end, courses, seminars and workshops are offered in four areas of learning and exploration:


  • Spiritual Formation focuses on the development of our personal resources to live in accord with God's love for us.

  • Theological Exploration helps us understand the depth of our faith and the meaning of our existence.

  • Social Justice instructs us how to carry forth the love of god in our world for our fellow humans and for the well being of the earth.

  • Life Skills provides tools by which to grow in spirit, mind, and body.


Youth and adults are encouraged to participate fully in the program. 

Childcare will be provided during each Sunday class, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm.  

All are welcome here!

Telling Our Stories

10:30 am in the Community Center

Knowing and telling our stories is important. It is one of the main ways we figure out where we came from, where we want to go and how to navigate our way there (or not!). In this class, led by Diane Wilson, we will talk about the histories of stories, hear a significant one, and describe our own favorite tale and how that impacts what we do today.  Sam Keen says “Every person’s deepest ecstasies and fears are as old as mankind and common as dirt…Seize the authority to create your own story.”

Sunday, January 26th
