“Is being an Episcopalian the same thing as being a Christian?”

brian-rau-nave-pic-2Lent is the perfect opportunity to discover what our faith tradition and community continues to be about. If you are new to the Episcopal Church or have just wanted to better understand why we do the things we do in the Episcopal Church, then this group is for you! Join us Sunday mornings in Lent at 9:15 as we explore the beliefs, history, worship and practices of our great Church. Topics we’ll explore include:

  • “Is being an Episcopalian the same thing as being a Christian?”
  • “How did we get here?” (The Early Church to St. Thomas today – fasten your seatbelts)
  • “People of the Book” (The Bible, The Prayer Book and your books)
  • “We are what we worship: Praying Our Beliefs”
  • “What’s the Rite way for you: Sacraments & Sacramental Rites”
  • “Practice makes disciples: Church, Ministry, Spiritual Practices”

Anyone is welcome to take part in this group, whether or not you have joined, been received or confirmed or desire to do so. Your questions are most welcome and encouraged as we explore together what it means to be a part of the Church.

The class will meet Sundays through April 2nd in the Parlor. For more information, contact Fr. Darren at Darren@stthomasepiscopal.org or call the office at (513) 831-2052. See you there!
