“Writing Your Faith” presented by: Ann Koehler

Anne Koehler will present a six week session entitled “Writing Your Faith” beginning Wednesday, August 20.  In these sessions you will be guided by thoughtful and probing questions to write spontaneously exploring your faith.  You will be writing your own most personal questions and answers, in-sights and discoveries.  These work-shops are crafted through a series of exercises to draw out what you believe, question, discover, formulate, and refine about your personal journey with God.

Confirmation Classes
The sacrament of Confirmation gives young people and adults the opportunity to make a mature commitment of faith in Christ.  Confirmation classes are for anyone interested in joining the Episcopal Church or reviewing some basics of Anglican tradition and faith.  Six weeks of classes will begin on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 and include topics on Jesus and the church, Scripture, Liturgy BCP, Sacraments, Church governance, Doctrine, and Stewardship and Ministry.

Bishop George D. Young, III is scheduled to visit S. John’s Sunday, September 28, 2014 to confer the rites of Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation.


Coming in October

Please join Deacon Carl this October for weekly Wednesday evening presentations.  He will be presenting, with your participation, "The Voice of Matthew."  It is unique in that it represents collaboration among scholars, writers, musicians, and other artists.  Its goal is to create the finest Bible product to help believers experience the joy and wonder of God's revelation.  Join him as we walk with the Gospel of Matthew written by a Jew for Jews.  In fact, all of Jesus' first disciples were Jews, and Matthew sought to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus was the royal Messiah, the Son of David, the one established by God to rule over the Kingdom.  You will place yourself in the presence of Jesus as we walk through the Passion of Christ.  The class is limited to 13 participants.

Look for a sign-up sheet in the Narthex.
