Sunday Adult 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.

Watch for details coming January 2017: 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 Poulson Reed 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 6-7:30pm March through May. Confirmation by Bishop Kirk Smith is on May 14, 2017 at 11am. To reserve your place in the group, email Lindsay Wood at
