Confirmation/Inquirers Class

Our annual Confirmation/Inquirers Class begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26. There will be five sessions meeting on consecutive Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Parish House. This class is for all interested in the Episcopal Church’s understanding of the Christian faith, especially:

  • those preparing for the sacrament of Baptism or the sacramental rite of Confirmation.
  • those who have never been part of a church.
  • those who are returning to church after a long absence.
  • those who have belonged to another faith tradition, but find themselves drawn to Christ.
  • Christians from another denomination who want to explore the Episcopal/Anglican tradition.
  • Episcopalians who would like to engage faith afresh.

Everyone should find something of interest, find their faith enriched, and make deeper relationships within the parish. We will cover the fundamental doctrines of our faith, church history, reading the Bible, and more. Please join us!

Confirmations will occur at the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, March 29. Baptisms will occur at the 6:30 p.m. Easter Vigil on Saturday, April 11. Contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser if you are interested or have questions.

Incarnation Book Challenge

The Spiritual Development Committee is challenging parishioners to read C.S Lewis’ Mere Christianity during the season of Lent. This classic of Christian apologetics is made up of several brief and easily digestible chapters, which are adapted from a series of BBC radio talks Lewis gave during the Second World War. Lewis makes a case for “mere Christianity” as the answer to the great existential questions facing humankind, such as the nature of the universe, the meaning of life and the problem of pain. The clergy will take up the book in three sections for teaching and group discussion on March 8, 15 and 22 after Coffee Hour. Copies of Mere Christianity will be available for purchase at the church starting Sunday, February 23.
