The Thorne Sparkman School offers a dynamic opportunity each Lent for Christians and seekers to gather in community each Wednesday evening with others from across our city for a rich time of learning, fellowship, worship, and faith exploration, with first-class scholars and teachers. In 2023, we will meet again in person at St. Paul's. There will be a light soup dinner served before the lecture. This year's offerings will focus around the theme of faith and the environment.
Thorne Sparkman is located at the beautiful and historic St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 305 W. 7th Street in downtown Chattanooga.
