The Bishop is Coming!

New Class starting August! 

 

We are changing up our Wednesday evening programs starting in August.  Our diocesan bishop +Daniel P. Richards will be at Good Shepherd on October 9th!  How exciting! It is the bishop’s role to confirm, receive, and reaffirm children and adults in their Christian development.  I hope Good Shepherd will have LOTS of folks prayerfully considering these public acts of faith.

 

Being Confirmed means that you have been baptized at a young age and are now willing to make a mature, public affirmation of your faith which will be celebrated by prayers and the laying on of hands by the bishop.  If you were baptized as an infant and never confirmed, please consider taking this next step in your Christian life.

 

Being Received means that you have been baptized in another faith tradition, and you desire to express this commitment to Christ by being received into the fellowship of this faith tradition, the Episcopal Church.

 

Being Reaffirmed means that you have been baptized and confirmed, but wish to publicly reaffirm the promises you have made to Christ in your faith journey.

 

Class will be held on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm beginning on August 23rd and ending on October 4th with each class lasting about an hour. There is a book that we will use for this class that costs about $20.  I will have those available in the parish hall prior to the class beginning and you may pay for your book at that time.  If buying the book is a hardship, scholarships are available from the church.  See Sister Fergie. 

 

If you are interested in being confirmed, received, or to reaffirm your baptismal vows, these classes are a requirement. It shows a level of commitment when we study and ready ourselves to make these public affirmations of faith.  If you just want to sit in on the class and learn about the Episcopal Church, you are welcome to do that as well.  If you are interested in the class, please put your name on the sign-up sheet in the parish hall so we can know how many books to have available.  If you have any questions, please reach out to me!  I can’t wait for our bishop to see your public commitment to Jesus and to the Church!
