CHRISTIAN EDUCATION


Church School Get fired up about Sunday School!

Check our Facebook page and our "Tidings" newsletter for the most recent pictures.

Well "Construction" is definitely under way! (In more ways than one!) The Christian Education Committee met Saturday, July 28th and had a workday. We cleaned out the rooms designated for our Sunday School classrooms. We also cleaned out the storage closets in the Parish Hall. This week the Nursery is being repainted from top to bottom. The committee also went through and removed toys from the nursery that were broken and old. We also removed toys that were inappropriate for nursery age children (birth - 3 years of age). With a full Sunday School program in place for fall, all children three and up should attend Chapel or Church. There is also a plan to purchase more up to date toys and nursery equipment. A middle school room will also be repainted. We are very excited about all our progress.

Thanks again for your support,

The Christian Education Committee

 

Biblical Study Series
Vacation Bible School  

 

Lenten Programs Lenten programs are held Wednesdays during Lent.  The church is open beginning at 5:30 p.m. for Meditation and Silence. At 5:50 p.m. the Service of Order of the Evening is held. A light supper from 6:15 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. is followed by a short variety of programs from 6:45 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., concluding with the service of Compline.

 

Inquirer's Class / Confirmation Class Designed to prepare a youth or an adult to be confirmed, received or reaffirmed in their faith within the Episcopal Church, the class covers a wide variety of topics including creeds, the prayer book, and Holy Scriptures.

In order to prepare for the Bishop’s Visit, there will be a total of eight class meetings, 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. Please call the office if you are interested in attending. (349-3511) Special classes will be arranged with college students who will be unable to attend these meetings. It would be helpful to bring a Bible, a small notebook, a hi-liter, and a pen or pencil to each session.

I am aware some of us may not know what the terms “confirmation,” “reception” and “reaffirmation” mean.

Confirmation is the time in a person’s life where he/she stands
before God, the church and the Bishop and proclaims his/her belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. For many youth and young adults, they are accepting the vows taken for them by their parents and godparents at their baptism as infants.

Reception is the process by which a person of another Christian denomination is received as a full member of the Episcopal Church. The person has already proclaimed that Jesus is Lord and Savior in another Christian denomination.

Reaffirmation is the opportunity for someone who has committed his/her life to Christ to publicly reaffirm beliefs and vows. Many parents and sponsors of confirmands take the opportunity to renew these vows with the confirmand they have sponsored.

 

Bible Study In addition to Adult Sunday School, at times we are also offering an Adult Bible Study. 

 

Resource Library We have a small resource library with reference books, inspirational books and tapes as well as videotapes.
