Christian Formation


Christian Formation

Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes countercultural life in a secular world.

At the heart of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church is a dynamic, growing faith community of children, youth and adults! Our programs aim to foster God’s love in a progressive, inclusive setting.

For more information, please contact Roger Hutchison, Palmer's Director of Christian Formation and Parish Life.

Wednesdays at Palmer

Great Wednesday will begin again September 13!

Pretty Good Wednesdays - The Palmer chapter of the Order of St. Luke will be hosting its summer time "Pretty Good Wednesdays" at 6:30  pm on June 7, 14, 21, and 28 in A202. We have a pot luck supper and all are welcome. We'll be discussing The Power of Kindness by Piero Ferrucci. The discussion will be led by Adrienne Bond. Adrienne will begin with the chapter on Gratitude preceded by Psalm 34. If you'd like to join us, please email Allen Sparkman at  .

Pilgrim – This group meets Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 pm in A201. All adults (including youth ages 16 and older) interested in being confirmed, received or reaffirmed in the Episcopal Church are invited to join The Rev. Liz Parker and fellow travelers who desire to know and follow the way of Jesus. Pilgrim is an innovative and inspiring program that approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion but by participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with others. This offering is open to all. It is designed to prepare seekers, new Christians and those new to the Episcopal Church for confirmation, but a commitment to be confirmed isn’t a prerequisite. This group can also benefit any pilgrim who desires to discover or deepen their understanding of the Christian journey. – Room A201 with The Reverend Liz Parker
