Formation Classes

The Sunday morning worship service is the primary way in which we are formed as disciples. Hearing God's Word proclaimed and then feasting at his table bring us into ever closer relationship with him through his Son. Beyond Sunday morning, there is no better way to be formed as a disciple or to growth in your faith than by studying God's Word. At Grace, we are committed to studying the Bible!

An Introduction to the Book of Common Prayer - led by Jacob Davis

When: Sunday mornings, 11am
Where: Cooke Hall
Who: Open to all in 6th grade and older

What is the Book of Common Prayer? Why does it shape our Anglican worship? How can I use it in my personal time with God? In this class, we will explore the Book of Common Prayer, where it came from, and walk through its 2019 edition step-by-step. As we do this, we will discover why the Prayer Book is, in J.I. Packer’s words, “the Bible arranged for worship.” This class will meet in the Cooke Hall worship space (for the campus map, see the diagram on the "What to Expect" page).

The Exploration Class - led by Pastor Nick

When: Sunday mornings, 11am
Where: Art & Music Building
Who: Open to all in 6th grade and older

Each Spring, Pastor Nick leads The Exploration Class, which is a wonderful opportunity to get to know more about what makes Grace Anglican tick. The class runs for 13 weeks, and covers everything we care about, from "the basics" like "Who is Jesus?" and "What is the Gospel?" to things like how the Anglican church is structured and how it came to be. This class will meet in the Art & Music Building (for the campus map, see the diagram on the "What to Expect" page). 

The Psalms of Ascent - led by Tiffany Childs

When: Wednesdays, 7pm
Where: Art & Music Building at HLS
Who: Open to women 18 and older

The Psalms of Ascent are a special group of psalms comprising Psalms 120—134. They are also called Pilgrim Songs. Four of these songs are attributed to King David (122, 124, 131, 133) and one to Solomon (127), while the remaining ten are anonymous.

The city of Jerusalem is situated on a high hill. Jews traveling to Jerusalem for one of the three main annual Jewish festivals traditionally sang these songs on the “ascent” or the uphill road to the city. According to some traditions, the Jewish priests also sang some of these Psalms of Ascent as they walked up the steps to the temple in Jerusalem. The Psalms of Ascent continue to find a place among the many hymns and songs of worship of Jews and Christians today. They serve as powerful examples of how we can express our worship and love for God through the power of song.

The Women's Bible Study meets at 7pm on Wednesday evenings in the Art & Music Building at Highlands Latin School (see the "What to Expect" page for an HLS campus map). The school's address is 10901 Shelbyville Rd. Join the ladies of Grace as they hear God's word and learn about his love together. Please email Tiffany for more details.

Class schedule:
February - 28
March - 6, 20, 27
April - 10, 17 (no class April 3)

...and coming in the Fall...

Genesis - led by Dr. Michael Nicholson

Beginning Fall 2024

When: Thursday evenings, 7pm
Where: The Nicholson Home (4623 Fox Run Rd Louisville, KY 40207)
Who: Open to men 18 and older

The book of Genesis tells a story. It tells of the beginnings of the world, mankind and God’s faithfulness to man even in the face of rebellion. Being both theological history and an ancient literary work, the text of Genesis is packed with meaning, symbolism and ultimately points us to Jesus Christ. Join us for the men's Bible study (Thursday evenings in the home of Dr. Michael Nicholson), and read about God's creation, his selection of Abraham, and his building of a people.
