 Education Programs at Incarnate Word

“Providing leadership for the exploration of God’s Word and life-long faith formation”. 

-    The Word Explored Core Group Mission Statement

Martin Luther spoke of the two pillars that hold up the Church:  Worship and Education.  We take that seriously at Incarnate Word, seeking to find as many ways as possible to provide opportunities for learning about God, God’s Word, and ourselves.  In baptism, God claims us as beloved children, and we respond to that gift throughout our lives, always striving to grow in our faith lives.    

Learning is a lifelong endeavor, and we seek to provide many opportunities for faith formation for our youngest disciples to our oldest saints.  Through traditional Bible study, Sunday School classes, January Term exploration of the arts,  Confirmation study for young people, Adult Forum focusing on contemporary issues, book discussions, retreats, mission trips and study trips, we are surrounded by many opportunities to grow in our faith.


We invite you to explore our learning opportunities and grow with us as we continue to hear God’s message of love, hope and grace.
