New Members’ Classes – Summer of 2017

This is a series for people new to, or for those with questions about, the Episcopal Church will begin on Sunday, June 11.  This is a great opportunity for both newcomers and long-time Episcopalians to learn about our church.  The group will use the book titled The Episcopal Way.  The class will take a brisk walk through the Episcopal Church’s journey and evolution with the people in the world, our country and local community.  This course is also good for those who may be preparing for confirmation or for reception into the Episcopal Church. There are 10 sessions planned, including a “stump the rector” opportunity!  We will meet on specified Sundays from 10 – 10:50 am in the undercroft. Help yourself to coffee after or before your chosen Sunday service.
