Confirmation/Inquirers Class

Every year, a class is held in the winter and spring for those who are interested in the Episcopal Church’s understanding of the Christian faith. The five sessions prepare for church membership those who are from Protestant denominations, people with no religious background who wish to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, Roman Catholics or Lutherans who wish to be received into our Church, and Episcopalians who wish to renew their baptismal commitment as adolescents or as adults. Some people who just want to learn more about the Episcopal Church also attend, and long-term members of Incarnation come for a refresher course on the Bible, church history, theology, liturgy, ethics, and prayer in the Anglican tradition.

Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings, March 1 through 29, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Parish House. Contact the Rector for more information. Bishop Allen Shin, Suffragan Bishop of New York will officiate during his first confirmation visit to Incarnation on April 2.

Stewardship

During the season of Epiphany, we celebrate the manifestation of God in Christ, who came so that he might be with us in every moment of our lives. Where do you find God in each aspect of your life — your professional life, your social life, your family life, and even your financial life? Consider what God might be calling you to give to support and sustain God’s work through the Church.
