I Am Incarnation

Mark your calendars for our fall forum series, “I Am Incarnation.” We’ll look at the history of our parish, our present identity as a church community, and our call as individual members of the body of Christ. We’ll also consider some of the great “I Am” statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Each statement gives us a glimpse into who Christ is and therefore who we are in him.
