EPISCOPAL 101 - SUNDAYS, SEPT. 22-OCT.13, 12PM-1PM

Bring your own lunch and learn the basics of the Episcopal Church; who we are, why we do things the way we do, and how to be a part of this beautiful family of Christianity.

CONFIRMATION PREPARATION - JAN 12-APR. 5, 2020 - EVERY OTHER SUNDAY - 6:30-8:00PM

Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which the candidates express a mature commitment to Christ and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. Those, age 13 thru adulthood, who were baptized at an early age are invited to make a mature public affirmation of their faith, recommit themselves to the responsibilities of their baptism, and receive laying on of hands by a bishop. Confirmation classes will help prepare candidates for the sacrament as we explore the church's teachings and develop our own faith identity.

WOMEN’S BIBLE/BOOK STUDY - MONDAYS - 12PM-1PM - OFFICE CONFERENCE ROOM

Feel free to bring your lunch and join this group in the office conference room for thoughtful discussion and study on scripture and books relating to Christianity and faith. Always open to new members.
