Theology on Tap

Friday, September 15  |  7:00 pm

Theology on Tap is a fellowship ministry for people of all ages who come together on the last Friday of each month at a nearby restaurant.  Theological conversations find their way into the overall fun and fellowship of the evening.  

Theology on Tap meets once a month at a parishioner's home near the church.  All adult parishioners of St. Columba's are invited and you're always encouraged to bring friends with you.

Our next gathering will take place Friday, September 15 at 7:00 pm at the home of Donna Cory and Lauren Garner. For details and to RSVP, contact Donna (click here) or Dani Start (click here).

Navajo-Nation Mission Trip

Mission Trip 2k18

June 25 - July 1, 2018

       This summer, youth from our parish will travel to Navajo Nation for a week of mission and spiritual growth.  The trip is coordinated by Wonder Voyage.  We will be immersed in the local community, learn from and share faith journey stories with the Navajo community, work with vacation Bible school program, and spend time journeying as a group to grow as pilgrims in Christ.  

       We will fly from Atlanta to Alburquerqe, NM.  The week will have some traditional mission work components, but the focus will be more that of a pilgrimage journey.  The maximum cost would be $1300 per person.  However, the fundraisers we have planned this year will greatly reduce that cost.  Our goal is to have the trip cost between $700-800 per person.  Details will be communicated at the weekly EYC meetings as well as to our parent email list.  To be included in that distribution list, please contact Durham Harris (click here).  To get some details about the area to which we'll travel, click here to see a basic outline provided by Wonder Voyage.

Age 3 - 5th Grade:  Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program is the foundation of formation for all children ages 3 through 5th grade.  Level 1 is for 3-5 year olds.  Level 2 is for those in 1st through 3rd grade.  Level 3 is for those in 4th and 5th grade.

Middle & High School:  Focusing on belief, community, and mission, this exciting interweaving of Scripture, sacramental formation, and youth ministry will be the focus of our middle and high school program.  The goal of this program is to help teens navigate the complexities of their lives with faith as their foundation while calling on the love and hope experienced in the Christian community to lead them into young adulthood.  Much like the structures of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, this will be a hands on formation program that will give teenagers practical applications of faith and opportunities to deepen their relationship with God through their growing closer to one another in community.

Adults:  A number of opportunities come together to form our Adult Formation Program.  The Sunday morning Rector's forum, mid-week Bible study, pastoral care and fellowship groups, and seasonal retreats and workshops come together to help us along our Spiritual journey.   Whether you may just be beginning your journey, or perhaps you are looking to grow deeper in faith, there is an opportunity for you this fall!  Each aspect of our adult ministry seeks to meet us wherever we are and guide us into a closer relationship with God, who formed us and calls us as His own.

Lunch on the Lawn” is an annual tradition for Rally Sunday.  Everyone is invited to a parish luncheon that begins at 12:30 pm.  The Knights of Columba will be doing the cooking:  hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, cole slaw, and more.  No need to bring a thing - just plan to join us for a wonderful afternoon.  

Plan to make a day of it and join us for Sunday school, a festive Eucharist, and parish luncheon.  Rally Sunday is great way to see before us all of the the excitement and energy of our parish as we live out our mission to be a "holy place where love is found, all are named, and hearts are set free to change the world."
