Godly Play Begins September 8
This Montessori-based church school program for children age four and older takes place every other week. The gentle curriculum encourages children’s curiosity about Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit and the Church. There are many opportunities to develop faith as they study scripture and the Church. Our newly refurbished nursery is available for children under four.
Adult Confirmation Classes begin September 12 at 6:00 pm.
If you would like to be confirmed, received or renew your faith in the Episcopal Church when Bishop Rehberg visits in November, this class is required. There are seven sessions. Plans for session dates and details will be decided by the class at the first meeting. Mother Beth and others will teach the sessions.
Adult Christian Education Starts September 15
This class takes place during coffee hour following church. The theme is Short Stories by Jesus with a DVD by the author, Dr. Amy Jill Levine.
