Episcopal Church 101: Forming an Episcopal Identity

Join us in Lent for a special five-week Episcopal Church 101 Adult Forum series! Some of us were born into the Episcopal Church; some of us are brand-new here, but all of us have something to learn as we deepen the understanding of our tradition. We will have an opportunity for you to deepen your commitment to the Church by being received or confirmed when Bishop Mark Hollingsworth visits on May 5, 2019.
This forum series is intended as preparation for being received or confirmed, but all are invited to attend. You may attend any session whether or not you have attended previous ones. Contact any of the clergy with questions. We hope to see you there!

March 10 & 17: History and Polity of the Episcopal Church
Led by the Rev. Dale Grandfield
In two sessions over two weeks, we will take a brief but honest look at the history of The Episcopal Church, endeavoring to draw connections to who we have come to be as a church. Week One, we will begin in 1587 with the first Anglican baptisms in the New World and end on the eve of the American Civil War. Week Two will begin with the Civil War and finish with the present
day. Bishops, vestries, race and slavery, mission societies, and Methodists. We will talk about them all. Come and see!

March 24 & 31: Instructed Eucharist
Led by the Rev. Jessie Dodson

April 7: A Tour of the Book of Common Prayer
Led by the Rev. Jeanne Leinbach
