Education for Ministry Fall 2020
On September 23, the Wednesday evening Education for Ministry (EfM) group at St. James Parish will begin a new program year. We have several places for new members, and we invite your consideration of whether this is the time for you to begin EfM.
EfM is a 4-year program that includes an in-depth study of the Old Testament (1st year), New Testament (2nd year), Church history (3rd year), and Christian ethics and theology (4th year). EfM provides an opportunity for prayer, worship, study, and spiritual reflection in a comfortable and supportive group setting that fosters spiritual growth.
Here at St. James Parish, the Wednesday evening program meets each Wednesday from September through May from 6:00 PM until about 8:30 PM. Bill Bivins and Karen Clark are co-mentors; the cost of the program is $375 per year which includes all reading materials. Participants are not required to make a commitment to complete all four years, but they are urged to be faithful in weekly attendance and in the reading of the assignments.
If you would like to know more about EfM at St. James, please contact Bill Bivins at [email protected] or Karen Clark at [email protected]. We hope you will consider our program and let us know if we can provide further information.
