Foundations of the Faith

Inquirers' Classes

Are you brand new to the Episcopal Church or even to the Christian faith? Or have you perhaps forgotten most everything you learned in the Confirmation Class you attended when you were a teenager? Do you want to know more about the foundations of the Christian story or harbor questions about the history and theology of the Episcopal Church? Ever wondered how the Episcopal Church differs from, and is similar to, other Christian bodies? Curious about the story behind some of our worship practices? Well, now you have an opportunity to learn more about language, traditions, practices, and beliefs of the Episcopal Church and its brother and sister communities in the larger Christian world.

Beginning on April 11, and continuing through May 2, Foundations of the Faith Classes will be offered at Holy Comforter. These sessions are designed to offer an overview of our faith and heritage as Episcopalians and Christians. They are appropriate for people who are new to Holy Comforter or the Episcopal Church, but are also certainly intended for people who want to brush up on their knowledge of Church history, theology, and related issues. No topic is too mundane, no question too basic for these sessions.

The classes will run from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., and will take place in the parish library. Wherever you are on your journey of discovery in Christ, please consider joining the Inquirers' Classes. It is a wonderful way to become better acquainted with others in the parish family, and to grow in knowledge and faith. If you intend to participate, please write jlparkin@holycomforter.org to let me know, or if you have any questions, call me at (847)251-6120, ext. 115. See you on April 11th.
