Adult Ministries

Faith Formation for Adults

Adult faith formation takes place at 10:20am on Sunday mornings in the conference room from September to May. Classes start again on September 25.

Will you take our Adult Faith Formation survey to help us plan better?

September 25- October 16: If I Were The Preacher:

Each week we’ll take a look at the Scripture readings for the next week and discuss them. What jumps out to you? If you were the preacher, which text would you choose to preach on and why? What would you say to this congregation? Each week will be a fun and lively conversation as we unpack and dig deep into texts.

October 23-December 11: “The First Christmas” by Borg and Crossan book study:

Each week we’ll talk through a section of the book. A description of the book from Amazon: In The First Christmas Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan—top Jesus scholars and authors of The Last Week—help us see the real Christmas story buried in the familiar Bible accounts. Basing their interpretations on the two nativity narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Borg and Crossan focus on the literal story—the inner truth rather than the historical facts—to offer a clear and uplifting message of hope and peace. With The First Christmas readers get a fresh, deep, and new understanding of the nativity story, enabling us to better appreciate the powerful message of the Gospels.

 

St. Peder’s Library

Our library is located across from the lounge for easy access anytime during church hours. The library features a wide variety of books, children’s books, pre-teen and young adult selections, biblical resources, videos, DVD’s and other resources. Stop and take a look through our selection of resources.

Gather Bible Study

Gather Bible Study meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 9:30am. All are welcome to come and join in this Bible Study. Monthly themes can be found in the Messenger Newsletter.

Pub Theology

What is Pub Theology? It is an informal gathering of people who discuss different topics about religion or tough issues of faith or just talk about how God is acting in their lives. The group is open to all ages, but you must be 21 or older to drink. We meet the first Wednesday of every month (October-May) at Parkway Pizza on Minnehaha Ave at 7:00. There will be a topic for each gathering that will be put in the bulletin the week before this group meets. Contact Shannon at faithformation@stpeders.org with any questions.

Book Studies

Throughout the year, Book Studies are offered at St. Peder’s. Shannon Kearns will often lead a book study during Advent, Lent or during other church seasons.  Contact Shannon at faithformation@stpeders.org with any questions.

Inter-generational Events

Advent Event

We invite all to join us on the First Sunday of Advent for an Advent Event Celebration that begins at 10:30am with a special and brief worship service, followed by a simple soup lunch, with special events & crafts for all ages. It is another way in which we gather together as a congregational family.
