Virtual Faith Formation Classes

St. Andrew’s is offering several faith formation opportunities virtually since we cannot meet in person at this time.

Are you interested in learning more about World Religions?

Drop into any Wednesday class in the series 


St. Andrew’s will be offering a weekly class on World Religions using the Zoom platform this summer.  Parishioner, Rich Ater, has been involved in interfaith dialogue and activities for several years and is quite involved in the Seattle Interfaith Community Sanctuary.  He writes, “The world is growing smaller and closer, as it does so, it behooves us to get to know each other better. One way to do this is to learn about each other’s religions!”


Rich’s class will cover seven of the worlds religious movements, one per week on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, and will continue each Wednesday evening through July 21st


Rich highly recommends that people obtain a copy of Huston Smith’s book, “The World Religions” and that they read the chapter pertaining to the religion of the week before class.  You can find the book online here The World’s Religions (bookshop.org).


The class is designed so you can attend any session that interests you.  You are not required to commit yourself to the entire series. 


For further information on the World Religion Class, please contact Rich Ater at richpsych.ater@gmail.com.


“Conversation with others across difference is not just a nice thing to do. It is a spiritual practice of love in action.”  

– Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

“From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference” is a campaign from The Episcopal Church inviting us and our neighbors to engage in one-to-one listening and sharing across the many differences that separate us.

In a cultural moment shadowed by pandemic, fractious politics, ongoing systemic racism and injustice and deep division within families, communities, and nations, our faith calls us to an opportunity to partner in simple ways by celebrating difference, listening with curiosity, and promoting healing.

Our next session will gather via Zoom on Sunday, June 13th from 11:15am to 12:30pm (after coffee hour). This will be our final session.

We are using the coffee hour Zoom link. So, join us at coffee hour and stay to be part of our conversation.  You are also welcomed to click on the coffee hour Zoom link at 11:10am to join us then.


For more information, please contact Karla Koon at klkrash@comcast.net.

Come join the conversation!


Sacred Ground

Look for this class again at St. Andrew’s in the fall!

Sacred Ground is a race dialogue series that is thoughtfully designed for our current times. It is designed to challenge our ideas about race and racism, while also creating a respectful and meaningful dialogue with one another. We will spend time walking through the history of race in the U.S as a way to understand our current racial climate. It holds the vision of beloved community as a guiding star – where all people are honored and protected and nurtured as beloved children of God, where we weep at one another’s pain and seek one another’s flourishing. I invite you to come alongside us and journey with us as we seek growth in our racial dialogue, while also seeking the flourishing of all people.

There are 10 classes in this course. Next session dates TBD.


For more information or to sign up for the class, please email Megan McInnis at mcinnism@spu.edu. We are looking forward to journeying and growing with you.


Bible Study: Christology

Having completed Lent and enjoyed our wonderful Easter, we will now be offering another Bible Study Series: “Christology.” This will be a 10 week series, again on Wednesday mornings, 11 am to 12:30 pm, starting 4/14 thru 6/16. Pat Eustis will continue to give us her wealth of knowledge and Donna Hawkins will be facilitating.  We will also have a finger labyrinth walk and Noon Day Prayer to close each session.
