New Member Class

While many in our congregation have an Episcopalian background, a great number come from other faith traditions, or may be exploring their faith for the first time. To help introduce you to our worship community, we offer a five-week series of conversational classes:

Week 1
Welcome Session, to get acquainted and give participants an overview of our church

Week 2
Our Worship, to discuss the Episcopalian/ Anglican tradition, why we worship the way we do, and our different services

Week 3
What We Believe, to introduce new members to faith, beliefs and the Book of Common Prayer

Week 4
Getting Connected, to survey your interests and to invite you to share your time and talents with our community and beyond

Week 5
Rector’s Forum, an opportunity to get to know Father Rick Westbury, our rector (the person in charge of our parish/congregation)

The series culminates with “Newcomer Sunday,” which celebrates newcomers as well as long-time members for their years of service.
