Education (Learning)

As Christians we are always learning and teaching one another.  At Grace Episcopal Church we attempt to provide opportunities for thought-provoking conversations as well as the chance to listen to people who are well-versed in theology, religion, and scripture.  We have programs for all ages.

 

Confirmation at Grace

Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which individuals “express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop” (BCP, p. 860). Through Confirmation, those who were baptized at an early age are invited to make a mature public affirmation of their faith, recommit themselves to the responsibilities of their baptism, and receive laying on of hands by a bishop (BCP, p. 412). Individuals who were baptized into other denominations and wish to affirm their commitment to the Episcopal Church may be received by a bishop. We currently prepare individuals for Confirmation using the Discovery Series: A Christian Journey, which is a ten-week educational program for confirmation preparation If you are interested in being confirmed, please let  Rev. Deb know.
