Christian Formation is the ongoing process of becoming the people God is calling us to be. We come together to read, discuss, and learn so that we might better know God and be transformed. St. Jude’s offers a variety of programs to enrich the lives of our members and help them to grow together.
We believe that adults still need to learn, and children need to be nourished in the faith and welcome in our worship – our Sunday morning schedule is listed below. You are invited to attend any age appropriate group that sounds interesting to you, and your questions and doubts are welcome to come with you.

St. Jude’s has a long tradition of sharing this program with our ecumenical partners at First Presbyterian Church. We alternate sites, so see The Beacon for details. Topics vary from year to year based on the interest of those involved.
Based on demand we also will offer classes for those who are new to the Episcopal Church in order to teach them about us and help them more fully participate in the life of our church.
Members of St. Jude’s also participate in formation opportunities outside of our church including the diocesan school for ministry, and Education for Ministry classes.
