Episcopal 101

Episcopal 101 Confirmation Class

What’s a thurible? Why do we read so many Scripture lessons in church? What is the Episcopal Church doing to offer aid in the war in Syria? These and many other Episcopal questions are being addressed during our winter-spring 2018 session of Episcopal 101 on Sunday mornings between January 14 and April 15. Confirmation Sunday will be April 22.

Teachers are the Rev. D. Dixon Kinser, the Rev. Darby O. Everhard, the Rev. Sara C. Ardrey-Graves, the Rev. John E. Shields and Nick Vanhorn.
