September 29th - November 3rd
9:30 - 10:10am
CEB Conference Rm
Mtr. Lisa will offer this course for both youth and adults preparing for Confirmation, Reaffirmation and Reception in the Episcopal Church, as well as for newcomers to the church who simply want to learn more about Christian faith and the history & tradition of the Anglican/Episcopal Church. Those who complete the class will be invited to receive the sacrament during the Bishop's visit to All Saints on November 10th, 2019.
The sacrament of Confirmation in the church is the rite in which the candidate aged 13 or above, "expresses a mature commitment to Christ, and receives strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop." (BCP pg. 860) Reaffirmation is exactly that, an adult reaffirming their faith in front of a Bishop as a way of “recharging” their discipleship. Reception is for those who have been Baptized as an adult or Confirmed in other Christian traditions, and who would like to be received by an Episcopal Bishop into our Anglican branch of the Christian Church. If this sounds like something you or your young adult would like to do, this class is for you!
All who are interested are asked to register for the class by contacting the church office.
