Adults

At St. John’s, we are life-long learners. Our programs seek to facilitate individuals from age 18 to age 108 in their efforts to learn more about the Bible, about the intersection of our faith and our lives, and about our call to do work in the world. Here are some of the many programs we offer to facilitate adult learning:
