Deepening Our Faith
In baptism, we promise to continue in learning, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayers. Whether gathered together or online, we can do these things so that our faith can grow!
Willard Kennedy continues to lead our weekly Bible Study. The
group meets every Sunday in the River Room from 9:30 – 10:15. Anyone is welcome
and can join at any time. Willard conducts a very informal class and wants people
to feel comfortable and get enjoyment from the teachings. Please check out this
very informative and enlightening opportunity that is available to us at St. Mary’s.
Newcomer's class provides an introduction to St. Mary's and the Episcopal Church, and helps participants explore what it means to live a life of faith. Please come, whether you are new to Christianity, the Episcopal Church, or to st. Mary's. Share your story, your hopes and fears; and explore your gifts and find a ministry that suits those gifts.
Confirmation & Reception
Confirmation is offered for adults and youth who were baptized as infants and are ready to make a mature declaration of faith before the Bishop of the Diocese. For adults who were confirmed in another church, reception into the Episcopal Church is marked liturgically by making a declaration before the Bishop. Confirmation and reception may take place during a Bishop’s visitation.
