Spiritual Gatherings at All Saint's
All Saint's is actively involved in incorporating Spiritual Gatherings both within our congregation and providing online resources for more in-depth information from the Diocese of East Carolina
For almost 90 years, Forward Movement has been supporting followers of Jesus in their daily walk with Christ. They first met several months after the Convention. At that meeting, amidst much prayer, the first leader of Forward Movement had an epiphany. He is reported to have said something like this:
“If we want the Episcopal Church to be strong, we need strong congregations. And if we want strong congregations, we need them to be filled not with habitual Christians, but with disciples.” -Forward Movement
As they tried to figure out how to turn “habitual Christians” into disciples, they realized that daily prayer and study was an important practice. For resources, regular scripture engagement, daily prayer, and books about the Christian faith, please click this link.
Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study
The All Saints’ Bible Study group welcomes everyone to participate in learning more about the books of the Bible. The group meets each Sunday morning at 9:30AM in the Conference Room of the Admin building. The class is open to attend for everyone for one Sunday or more.
All are welcome.
Women's Spirituality Circle
The Women’s Spirituality Circle is a group where women can explore spirituality in its various forms. The group is for all women who are young or old, married, divorced, widowed or single, straight or gay, white, black, brown or green, and of any faith. It is a safe place within which to share because of the
strict confidentiality, continuity and connection of the women. It is not strictly a social group. It is not a therapy group. It is a place to think and feel and be receptive to the spirit within each
of us as well as the other women in the Circle.
Adult Education and Spirituality
The committee sponsors a variety of adult religious growth opportunities.
The ministry of the Adult Education and Spirituality Committee (AESC) is to assist pastoral leadership in meeting the individual, small group, and community education and spirituality needs to the best of its ability. By conducting occasional surveys, and keeping in close contact with parishioners, vestry and other committee members, the AESC will meet those needs through on-line and in-person experiences.
Tuesday Morning Small Groups
Men’s and Women’s Groups meet separately for discussion about spirituality at work in our lives.
