INQUIRERS CLASSES

JUNE 5 - JULY 10

Have you wanted to know more about the Episcopal Church, its traditions and doctrines?

Are you interested in being confirmed as a member of the Episcopal Church or in reaffirming your confirmation?

Have you wanted to be received by the Bishop during the confirmation and reception service?

Confirmation is an adult commitment to our baptismal vows, and that reception is the official acceptance into the Episcopal church from another Christian denomination.      

Then we invite you to attend our Adult Inquirers Classes that will be held each Sunday morning from 9AM until 10AM beginning June 5th, or our Youth Inquirers Classes that will be held after the 10:30 AM service on those same Sundays (unless the Youth class determines a more convenient time.) Both these classes will be led by the Rev. Margaret Waters.

Bishop Porter Taylor will be coming to Incarnation on Sunday, July 10th to confirm those who have completed the classes and wish to be confirmed or to be received.              

Please sign up for these classes by contacting Kirsten Huscusson at 828-526-2968 or by email at incarnation@incarnationwnc.org. We will also have sign-up sheets in Jones Hall and at our reception desk. Please indicate if you wish to attend the adult or youth class.
