Want to discuss the scripture in detail? David Larrabee will be leading a discussion group every Sunday following the 10am service. We are following the Read Scripture app reading schedule (3 chapters and a psalm daily) with video introductions in each book. We’ll post the following week’s readings in the weekly announcements. Sign up here so we can keep you informed and connected with others who are reading. You can also access the PDF schedule here. Read, reflect and then discuss on our Facebook Group - All Angels' Connect Group.
Adult Confirmation Class, March 11-25, April 8-22, 11:30-12:30 am. The Book of Common Prayer defines confirmation as “the sacramental rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.” Whether you were baptized as an infant, desire to reaffirm your commitment to Christ as an adult, or simply want to revisit the essentials of what it means to be a Christian, we invite you to join us for this 6-week adult confirmation class. The final class on April 22 will be open to those who wish to be received into the Episcopal Church by Bishop Dietsche during his pastoral visit on April 29. Taught by Michelle Howard, Michael DeLashmutt and Christine Lee. Questions? Contact Christine at email@example.com.
The Bible Project: How are you getting on?
As a church we are reading the whole Bible in a year during 2018 using the Read Scripture app reading schedule with video introductions in each book. So far we have completed Genesis and Exodus and are now into Leviticus. If you have not viewed the Leviticus video yet please do so- it is excellent. Today join David Larrabee in the Whiting Room after the morning service to discuss this week’s readings. Sign up so we can keep you informed and connected with others who are reading: www.rebrand.ly/readscripture.
Intercessory Prayer Training, Saturday
24th February 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Intercessory prayer is often foreign
to us and appears to be hard work. Carolyn Carney has kindly offered to
give us some practical teaching which will be suitable for beginners
and the most advanced! Our hope is that we will build an intercessory
prayer team which, we believe, will be the primary means God uses to
advance His kingdom in this place. Email Heidi at
firstname.lastname@example.org to rsvp.
