Education for Ministry Group Forming

St. Paul’s Education for Ministry (EfM) group is now forming.

EfM is a four-year program designed by the School of Theology of Sewanee, the University of the South, to equip laypersons to engage in ministry. EfM involves intensive study of the Old Testament, the New Testament, church history and theology. EfM groups typically meet once a week for about two hours to discuss their studies and engage in theological reflection.

St. Paul’s EfM group is mentored by David Tamer. For more information about EfM, contact David at (336) 407-7345 or davelaw@bellsouth.net.

Faith & Justice Program

The Faith & Justice Committee Lunch and Speaker Series will begin its 2018-2019 series on  Thursday, September 27 at 12:00 noon in Colhoun A.

The program, titled “The Pot Within,” will be presented by the Rev. Rodney Stilwell, Senior Chaplain for Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries.

Drawing on Mark 7:32-37 and Romans 12:1-5, Stilwell will lead a time of listening to God through the work of the potter’s wheel. Using one part theater and one part theology, he will begin with Mark’s story of healing and discuss how listening brings us to transformation and away from destructive conformity.

Bring your own lunch. Beverages will be provided. All are welcome.
