ADULT CLASSES are usually held on almost all Sunday mornings and after dinner on Wednesdays at 7:15 pm from October through Easter. Special programs are announced.  The following classes or meetings are also available:
 
 
BONIFACE CENTER SERIES brings the best and the brightest to our parish and community.  Over the years we have enjoyed the visits of distinguished theologians, authors, musicians and others key to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian in the world.  Each year the format and focus is a little different, but the speaker is always engaging!  In February 2012, we welcomed John Dominic Crossan. 
 
EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY   Looking for something deeper than a basic Bible study? Something that connects your daily life with your faith and theology? Sign up for Education for Ministry! This popular small group learning experience is for the average lay person interested in exploring the Old Testament, the New Testament, church history and theology. Through study, a process of theological reflection and prayer, participants in the four-year program come to a fuller understanding of their faith and their calling to Christian service. They begin to see their world through “theological glasses,” seeing how their faith values line up with the culture around them. The group consists of six to twelve members meeting with a trained mentor for two to three hours weekly for nine-months each year. Participants sign up for a year at a time. EfM was developed by the School of Theology of the University of the South. It is now in its 36th year of educating and empowering lay people to provide ministry in the world in the places where they live and work. Be prepared for reflections and friendships that will create a powerful, life-enriching experienceClick here to learn more about the program, or contact Sandy Wilbur for more info.
 
FRIDAY MORNING MEN'S BIBLE STUDY The Men of Boniface hold a breakfast Bible study on the lessons for the coming Sunday each Friday morning at 7 a.m. at the Serving Spoon Restaurant on Osprey, just north of Hillview. New members are welcome.  Contact Matt Smith for info
 
MONDAY WOMENS' BOOK GROUP  Meeting on Mondays in different homes, this group chooses, reads and discusses a different book each month. New participants are welcome. Watch the newsletter and Sunday leaflets for announcement of monthly meetings. Click here for a list of books to be discussed.

The Boniface Speakers Program was established by the Vestry and the Rev. Canon Edward M. Copland to bring the brightest and best in religion to this parish and community.   Since the mid 1990s, we have enjoyed the visits of distinguished theologians, authors, musicians, and others key to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian in the world. 
To continue this ministry, the Vestry initiated the Boniface Speakers Fund at Easter 2011 to honor the ministry of the Rev. Canon Edward M. Copland, Rector 1991-2011.  We are thankful for the founding gifts that established this fund, and welcome additional gifts to ensure that we continue to enjoy the brightest and best in religion at Saint Boniface.
