Education


At St. Bart’s we realize that the Good News must not only be believed but also acted upon: together in community; through worshiping together; by sharing joys and sorrows in fellowship; and in doing ministry together in service to the wider world and our own community.

Defining your spirituality is a lifelong process that starts at Baptism. The people at St. Bart’s walk the path of spiritual pilgrimage together. We believe the Good News that Jesus Christ has died so that all of creation can be reconciled to God and to each other. Jesus’ resurrection is proof for us that new birth, which we experience in Baptism, is possible.

Education For Ministry

Education for Ministry (EfM) engages spiritual searchers and people who would love the chance to go deeper into our faith. Topics include: the bible and its history; Christian doctrine and traditions; today’s problems and Godly solutions. Father Mike, Anne and Janet facilitate the groups. You can check it out at www.sewannee.edu/efm.

Don’t be put off by the length – four school “years”, one seminar per week. Think about the friends you will make, and the sure foundation you will have for whatever opportunities open up for you in your future. New terms begin in either January or September, depending on the desires of the group.

Check it out online and talk to us – this might be perfect for you.

Sunday School

9:00 am on Sundays, between the services

Sunday mornings are a prime time for formation and education at St. Bartholomew’s. The nursery, located downstairs, is a Christ-centered, safe, welcoming environment designed to nurture the youngest people in our midst. The Nursery is open from 8:45 – 11:30.

At 9 a.m. children and youth ages 3 – 11 attend Sunday school classes. In these classes, a daily lesson is taught followed by discussion and related activities. Within these classes, children are encouraged to ask questions, and build a new understanding of Jesus and the Bible. Sunday school classes end at 9:45.

There is always something special planned for children at St. Bartholomew’s! We value children’s curiosity, enthusiasm, and the ability to wonder about God. For more information, please visit the Children’s page.
