The Discovery Series: A Christian Journey
Sunday Mornings this summer at St. Margaret’s
The Discovery Series is designed to help every Christian discover their own path to a life in Christ. The series is an invitation to spiritual growth and lays the groundwork to begin or continue a spiritual journey. The classes will take place on Sunday mornings from 9am until 9:50 in June and July. The classes will prepare those desiring the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation or Reception into the Episcopal Church but all are welcome to the Sunday classes. The classes will be a mix of video presentations and group discussion.
Focus: history, traditions and unique practices of the Episcopal Church. Participants will explore who ministers are, the Sacraments, rites and ceremonies of the Church, The Book of Common Prayer and Episcopal Church governance. An instructed Eucharist is part of this course and may be used as a stand alone educational piece for all ages.
