What does it mean to be "Confirmed?"
"Confirmed" indicates that a person has undergone laying on of hands by an Episcopal Bishop in a congregational worship service. When someone has been confirmed in another Episcopal congregation, a letter of membership can be transferred from the previous congregation.
When someone has been confirmed by a Bishop in the Catholic, Lutheran or Eastern Orthodox Church, that person can be received by an Episcopal Bishop in a service.
Adult Confirmation and Inquirers Class
This class is offered for any adult who wishes to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, or who simply wants to explore what we believe and the basics of faith.
What does the class cover?
The class explores the basics of Christianity: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the sacraments, the Bible, The Book of Common Prayer, history of the Christian Church and being an Episcopalian. The class also addresses the way the Episcopal Church lives out that basic faith through worship, Bible study and service to others. Christ Church clergy teach the classes. Everyone is welcome and questions are encouraged.
When do classes meet?
Sessions are held once a year in the winter and early spring months. The ten classes are held at 10 am (during the Sunday School hour), in the M206.
In 2023, this ten-session class taught by Christ Church clergy will be offered on Sundays, January 22 - March 26, at 10 am for any adult who wishes to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, or who simply wants to explore what we believe and the basics of faith.
