W e believe that all people seek meaning for their lives. This quest for meaning usually raises three questions for the one on the journey: Who am I? Why am I here? How then shall I live? These core questions return at different age stages of life and at times of crisis, loss and change. We seek to meet you at whatever stage or time in your life you find us.

We understand the role of Christian Education is not so much to provide answers to the questions raised by life, but to offer a supportive and informed setting for the questions to be lived and explored. The container for the journey is the Christian faith as received by the Episcopal (Anglican) tradition. The Bible and your own gift of reason are highly valued as sources of wisdom. The overall goal of our program is to help you become who you were created to be, and to be a faithful Christ Bearer in a world aching for hope, wholeness and peace.

For us, learning comes formally through classes, preaching and worship but also informally by participating in Christian community and ministry.
