About EFM-Education for Ministry


The Joint St. Andrew’s/Holy Redeemer EfM seminar group is recruiting for September 2021. This group has expanded over the past several years to now include people from Ascension and St. Luke’s churches. Due to the pandemic, we will be meeting on Zoom again this year on Tuesday evenings, 5:30-8:30 p.m. We have room for only six people so please let us know asap if you are interested.

EfM helps participants to encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into relevance with their experiences of the world today as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together.

We will begin a new year of study on September 21.  Those who have already committed to the group will be in their second, third, and fourth years of study.

If you are:

…Wondering what it means to develop a personal faith, what the Scriptures really say, or how to discern God’s call in your life?

…Interested in deepening your faith and your understanding of our Christian heritage, learning how to think theologically, and becoming more confident to be Christ’s minister in the world?

…Wondering “what’s next” after finishing Catechumenate?

…Or for you EfM graduates/participants—are you missing the small group intimacy and learning environment?  Thinking you didn’t “absorb” enough the first time around and curious about the new curriculum?

If so, please consider joining our group.

Are you curious about EfM, please contact Pennie Goodman, (303-913-2208; ggoodman1041@gmail.com), Jennifer Macy (303-320-1276; macy.jennifer@comcast.net), or Shawn Nowlan, (303-250-2705; snowlan01@gmail.com)

Scholarships and/or financial assistance may be available.
