Ministries Fair
Please stay after church on Sunday, August 24th, to consider signing up for a ministry in one of the many areas of St. Francis life both within our parish family as well as in outreach to the community.
Dig Deeper into the Christian Faith, studying the Bible, Church history and theological ideas and reflect on connecting faith with life experiences.
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a four year program (September – May) of education for adults in the Church produced by the School of Theology of the University of the South.  Several members are already entered into the program, and we would like to open the group to others of the parish who may be interested and who could join the current group.  The group meets weekly and is guided by a mentor.  This is a tuition based program.  Please contact Paul Rumage for details.
