Adult Education

Adult Confirmation Class

Due to the indefinite postponement of baptism and confirmation services, and the press of Holy Week busyness, we have decided to resume the adult baptism and confirmation classes on April 19, at 1 PM.  We will be using the Zoom meeting platform.  If you would like to be a part of this class, please email the office (office@staug.org) for an invitation even if you had previously signed up.  We want to insure that we sending the invitation to the correct email address.  Instructions on how to use Zoom as well as live training are available for anyone who may need them.  We expect that our baptism and confirmation services will be scheduled quickly once our time of isolation is finished.  Keep watching this section of the website for more details.  Thank you for your patience during these challenging times.  We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

If you are interested in joining us for the last 3 Lenten series lectures, “Living in a Secular Age” they will resume on March 31 via the Zoom meeting application. This software interface is easy to learn and is being widely used in our church during this time of social distancing. For instructions on how to participate or for a link to join the Lenten series, phone the office or email office@staug.org. We look forward to seeing many of you Tuesday at 7 PM online.
