Education for Ministry

"Renew in these your servants the covenant you made with them at Baptism. Send them forth in the power of the Spirit to perform the service you set before them." 

Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to respond to the call to Christian service and carry out their ministries.

EfM is starting a new year in September 2016. It is a four year curriculum which meets for 2+ hours weekly for 36 weeks.  

Rev. John Doherty and Rev. Jean McCarthy are mentors.

  • Year One: The Hebrew Bible 
  • Year Two: The New Testament 
  • Year Three: Church History 
  • Year Four: Theology, Ethics, and Interfaith Encounter
