The Bishop’s visitation is on Sunday, April 22, 2018. This year, we will make the Sacrament of Confirmation available to students, 7th grade and up, and to all adults who are new to the Episcopal Church. The youth will join with the adults for Confirmation prep through Lent and early-Eastertide. We will have 7 sessions (2/18, 2/25, 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 4/8, and 4/15) on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall, which will focus on what makes us unique in the Body of Christ as Episcopalians. You may resister for Confirmation through the link below. Christina Rutland, our Youth and Young Adult Minister, will follow up with more details on the schedule, format, and expectations of this program for our youth. Please contact the Rev. Jody Burnett or Kara Howland with any questions.
