Adult Education & Faith Formation

At Webster Groves Presbyterian Church, we believe that our minds and intellects are gifts from God to be cultivated and nourished as part of faithful living.  We have many opportunities for study, conversation, and enrichment on Sunday mornings and during the week.  All are welcome!

All education is currently being held via Zoom. Check the Friday Flash for links to each class.

Gospel Medicine - An Antidote to Pandemic Isolation

Sundays at 4:00pm
Join us each Sunday at 4:00pm for a brief time of in-person conversation, meditation and prayer. Bring your mask and a chair and we will gather together - six feet apart! - on the parking lot in the shade of our beautiful church.

We will enrich our souls exploring the book Gospel Medicine, a book of sermons written by Barbara Brown Taylor, author of last year's all church read, Holy Envy. Each week Pastor Hannah will lead us in a conversation about one of Taylor's sermons. Each chapter in the book is a different sermon. Each one is concise, very meaningful and can be read in less than 30 minutes. Music and prayer will be a part of our time together.
