Adult Christian Education

With regular learning, our faith becomes much more than a collection of information; it becomes a lens through which we see our lives. And when we see with the eyes of faith, we are more likely to act as God would have us act, for our sakes and the sake of others.


"What We Believe"

A Gentle Walk through the Episcopal Catechism

Monday evenings 6:30-7:30pm on Zoom

October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16

 

Our Interim Rector, Fr. Bill Lupfer will help us to turn belief into spiritual practice in this weeknight class offering. The online Zoom format will enable a more interactive approach to discussing the outline of the faith, commonly called the Catechism. We look  forward to bringing a new or greater understanding to how we are called to live as Christians, especially in today's landscape filled with difficult circumstances.

Confirmation

“In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared, to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop. Those baptized as adults, unless baptized with laying on of hands by a bishop, are also expected to make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism in the presence of a bishop and to receive the laying on of hands.” 

                                                                                  From the Book of Common Prayer, Page 412


All Saints’ offers Adult Confirmation/Inquirer’s Classes for those who are considering becoming a Christian; those who are considering joining the Episcopal Church; and for those who would like to deepen their faith and learn more about their Episcopal heritage.

The Path of Discipleship (Adult Confirmation Class)  

This is not your usual “class,” but a group committing to support one another as we walk together the path of faith, following Jesus. We will get to know each other, pray, and study the Christian faith in the Episcopal tradition. Father Tim Yanni and parishioner Michael King will be the mentors, with visits from special guests from time to time. This group is for adults who wish to be baptized, confirmed, received into The Episcopal Church (for those already confirmed in other denominations), and those Episcopalians who wish to reaffirm their commitment of faith. In other words, anyone may join the group, if you are willing to commit to our time together. We will  meet Tuesday evenings from 6-8pm March 10 through April 28, 2020.
