Faith Fundamentals: All about Christian and Anglican Identity
Join the Rev Patrick Ward and clergy guests for seven Sunday afternoon discussions exploring the essentials of Christian theology and church history. We’ll end in time for 6:00 pm Holy Eucharist. Including both 30-minute presentations and group discussion, our sessions will be framed by assigned reading from two short texts: A Faith for the Future by Jesse Zink and The Episcopal Story: Birth and Rebirth by Thomas C. Ferguson.
Open to everyone, whether new to church or a veteran – and helpful preparation for those considering baptism or formal reception into the Episcopal Church this spring. Recommended only for those who can commit to a minimum of five of our seven planned sessions.
