Adult Sunday Class Begins, Sept 10, 10:15 … Fr. Klein will start off our Adult Sunday series with a five week session called “Celebrate Anglicanism.” Using the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer as primary sources, we will discover the faith that Anglicans have always believed, taught, and practiced.

“Exploring Our Faith” Meeting, Sept 10, 10:15 … There will be a meeting Sunday at 10:15 in the green room for all who are  interested in attending the adult formation class “Exploring Our Faith” this year. This is a survey or overview of our Christian Faith as practiced for 2,000 years, with special emphasis given to our Anglican identity and spirituality. The class is open to all, and is of special value to anyone who has never been through it before, who is new to St. John’s or to Anglicanism, or who would like to be confirmed by our Bishop next May, or anyone who would just like a refresher course in the Faith. Because of the modular nature of the class, anyone may join in at any time, or join us for some specific topics.  For more info see Fr. Estes.
