2016 Fall Program season begins!

Trinity and St. Francis kick off their fall programming this Sunday. Here are just some of what is coming:

Children’s Chapel, our during-worship Sunday School, returns Sunday, September 11th. Leaders Jen Dilks, Addy Landrio, Pam Taylor, and Nancy Scott, along with other parents and youth volunteers, will offer weekly lessons based on our Sunday morning readings. Remember that our children begin worship with us and then proudly tromp off to Children’s Chapel as we continue with our scripture lessons.

Confirmation and Reception class starts Sunday, September 18th, from 3PM to 4:30. For those looking to officially join the Episcopal Church and for those of any age looking to make an adult profession of faith, these classes will involve both experiencing key elements of our faith practices and studying the history and theology of our denomination life. Please contact Father Matthew to express your interest and to ask any questions.

Adult Studies: Two sessions are forming now for Fall Faith Studies. Monday Evening at 7PM and Friday afternoon at 4:30. Gary Landrio and Father Matthew are helping to coordinate topics and leaders.

For those that are not familiar, let me please explain what The Children of Abraham is all about.

Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself? Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being? I wondered if I was living into the vows as well as I could be.
