St. John’s Episcopal Church - Sunday, June 4, 2017


From Fr. Ray +

I am leading a six-week class on The Apostles’ Creed each Wednesday, 6:15 p.m. and Thursday, at 10:30 a.m. These times allow those who so desire to attend both the class and one of the mid-week Eucharists.  The Apostles’ Creed is an excellent summary of our Christian faith.  The subjects of each class will be as follows:

  • Week 3:  The Holy Spirit
  • Week 4:  The Church and the Communion of the Saints
  • Week 5:  The Forgiveness of Sins
  • Week 6:  The Resurrection of the Body

Each class will include a brief video by Rev. Adam Hamilton. We have used his material before and found it both inspiring and challenging.      Blessings, Fr. Ray+
