ADULT FORMATION CLASS: Sunday mornings, 9:30am, through November 19. Led by Jaqueline Whalen in McCray Hall. As part of the completion of my Masters degree in Theological Studies, I am teaching a class this fall and I am looking for willing participants! Please join me in exploring "A recipe for Discipleship found in the Parables." I would love to share some of what I have learned through my studies at Regent University. I used to be afraid to tackle any parable. They all seemed confusing and some of them just made no sense to me. However, I have found some investigative tools that are truly helpful as you read through the Scriptures and it has made my study of Scripture so much more rewarding. Let's explore together what the parables have to teach us about our personal path of discipleship. I am looking forward to a lively class with lots of great discussion!

PIZZA WITH THE PASTOR—St. Peter’s 101: Do you have questions about living as a Christian or the distinctive way we do it here at St. Peter’s? We will offer our “Path In” to the life of St Peter’s on Sunday afternoons from 12:30-2pm in McCray Hall. We will help you explore what we are about here at St Peter’s and how we live and work together as a congregation. (October 8, 15, 22) Join us!

BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASSES: The next Holy Baptism will take place on All Saints Sunday, November 5. To prepare for that day, and the way of life that will follow, the parents of baptismal candidates will gather for four sessions of study and discussion on Sunday, October 8, 15, 22, 29, from 9:30-10:15am, in the Rector’s Office. Please let Wanda in the Church Office know if you would like to participate.

CHRISTIANITY EXPLORED: What’s the best news you have ever heard? We all get one life to live and deep down we’re all asking the same question – what’s it all about? Christianity Explored gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm, at Trillium Gathering Building, 18915 Lincoln Rd., Purcellville. Questions? Contact Dell Nunaley
