Adult Formation

The Chapel of the Cross offers a robust collection of opportunities to encourage all parishioners in the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.

You can see a sampling of our Formation opportunities in the seasonal brochure (below). There, you’ll find details about Sunday morning presentations, the Adult Inquirers/newcomers class, numerous small groups (that meet throughout the year) and other special events. Our programs are currently meeting in person, in hybrid classrooms, and through YouTube, Zoom, and other virtual platforms.  For more information, contact Boykin Bell.

Looking for a Sunday Morning Adult Formation program? Visit our YouTube channel.

Live streams will often (but not always) be broadcast at 10:15 AM during the program year. (Please be aware that you won’t see the video on the Home page of our YouTube channel until the broadcast begins.) Archived programs can be found on the Formation playlist. (You’ll need to scroll just a bit to see all the playlists.) Enjoy!

During a spring 2024 Formation series, the Creation Care Committee shared a list of advocacy and action resources for people interesting in protecting our environment. You can find a list of invasive plants that grow in our area at the NC-IPC “Shun List.” You can read more about the Episcopal Public Policy Network on The Episcopal Church webpage. You can reach local advocate support systems by contacting the Chapel of the Cross Creation Care Committee, the Diocese of NC, Interfaith Power and Light (ncipl.org) or Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle (interfaithcare.org).
