Inquirers Class to start in September

Sunday, September 4, after each service, we will have a planning session for starting an "inquirers" class that is designed for those new to the Episcopal Church or interested in knowing more about the Episcopal Church, to learn about our faith tradition and to understand the "what's and why's" of our practices. 
Inquirers Classes
The classes will meet for about an hour on days most people can attend.  So if you are wondering what it means to be an "Episcopalian", and what the Anglican-Episcopal tradition is all about . . . these classes will be for you!   Those of age groups from high school and beyond are encouraged to attend.   Inquiring minds are most welcome.  Look for more information to come during the month.  Please feel free to e-mail or call Fr. David with any questions.
