Adult Inquirers and Confirmation Classes
Sundays, October 6 – November 24 (lunch provided)
Location: McClure Hall
Time: 12 – 1:15 p.m.
Becoming Episcopalian: What does it mean to live as a Christian in the Episcopal tradition in today’s world? Why is the Eucharist so crucial to our faith? Why do Episcopalians have such peculiar terminology (e. g. narthex, curate, vestry, etc.)? These and many other questions will be addressed and discussed during our annual Inquirers series entitled, “Becoming Episcopalian.” This class is for both members and non-members who wish to learn more about, have a refresher, or reaffirm their faith as Episcopalians; who are not confirmed Episcopalians; or who wish to be received into the Episcopal Church from another Christian tradition. At the end of the class, those who wish to be confirmed, reaffirmed, or received will be invited to take part in the Confirmation Service during Bishop Roaf’s visit to GSL on January 12, 2020.
