Christian Education for Adults

The Other Six Days – Sermon Discussion Group

Sunday Mornings at 11:15am


The Other Six Days (or what do we do with what we learn in church for the rest of the week?) Sometimes it would just be good to sit down with others and talk over what was said in the sermon on Sunday, and how it might relate to our own lives, or perhaps explore questions it raises in our minds, or learn what it might have meant to others.  There is an opportunity to do that on Sundays from 11:15-12:00. Bring your coffee and snack along to the conference room in the hallway next to the sanctuary. Pastor Dana will join as she is able. Questions can be directed to Betsy Sole at or 734-420-6973.

Tuesday Morning Women's Bible Study

Tuesdays ~ 9:30am - 11:00am


This intimate and self-sustaining study of God’s Word meets weekly.  Our collaborative format is simple: We take turns reading Scripture aloud; often comparing different translations of the Bible.  Discussion follows based on individual interest and Biblical commentary as we seek to better understand God through our ancient texts. This fall we will study the Book of Acts.  All are welcome and no background or experience in Bible Study required!  Please bring your bible.



Wednesday Morning Bible Study during Lent

Promise, Blessing and Transformation

Wednesdays ~ February 14 – March 14

9:30am and/or 8:00pm


Each Sunday during Lent our Sunday readings lift up God's covenantal and renewing ways with Israel, and then we hear something about Jesus' way of the cross and the obedience of discipleship. It's a stark contrast. Celebration of covenant. Call to follow the way of the cross. Joy and suffering. Faith and discipleship. Dying and rising. Even before the "paschal mystery" is joyfully proclaimed at Easter, all of the signs of its meaning are here in Lent. 


We will be "digging in" to these Scriptures and their themes in small group study Wednesday mornings at 9:30am and/or Wednesday evenings at 8:00pm, following Evening Prayer. This study is open to anyone and everyone. This study will double as an "Inquirer's Class" for those interested in exploring baptism and/or membership at St. John's. This study will be facilitated by Pastor Dana. Please sign-up on the Sign-Me-Up board in the hallway.

This dedicated group of men gathers weekly to share their lives and support their faith journeys.

The men also volunteer at St. Leo's Soup Kitchen in Detroit the first Thursday of every month.

Saturday Men's Bible Study

7:30am coffee & goodies, 8:00am DVD & discussion


This Saturday Men’s Bible Study gathers about 7:30am to have coffe and goodies. Then study begins strictly at 8:00am and concludes at 9:00am. We have a good time socially, a challenging time intellectually, and a supportive time spiritually. The group will be viewing "How Jesus Became God" in the fall. All men are welcome!



Centering Prayer Small Groups

Tuesdays from 5:30–6:45pm  or Wednesdays from 8:45-9:30am


These small groups will include a “sit,” a teaching, and opportunity to share about your CP practice. Centering prayer is a method of silent prayer that is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. If you haven’t taken the introduction workshop you may still participate in one of these small groups. Introductory brochures are on a table in the entrance hallway. More info is also available at



Confirmation Classes for Adults & Youth


Spark your faith! Pastor Bruce will be offering confirmation classes each Sunday at 11:15am beginning March 4 - May 6 (no classes March 25-April 8). Bishop Gibbs will confirm those who’ve completed classes on Tuesday, May 15 at 7pm at St. Paul’s in Brighton (see map).




Youth and adults are also invited to a confirmation pilot program retreat, Inspire, sponsored by the Diocese on March 2-3 at 6:00pm Friday through 5:15pm Saturday at the Emrich Retreat Center in Brighton. For inquiries, contact Eric Travis at
