Formation 45 (Sunday School for Kids and Adults)
This Sunday, September 20, our "Formation 45" will continue for both children and adults of our parish. Each Sunday from 9:15am to 10am (45 minutes), we will have Children's Sunday School via Zoom, while ages 6th grade through adults will have Christian formation with Father AJ (also via zoom). Eventually, we hope these activities will return to in-person, but for now, we are celebrating the grace that technology allows! If you are ages 6th grade through adult, no pre-registration is necessary. ALL are welcome every Sunday or every once-in-a-while.
For our pre-K through 5th grade, we are asking that you pre-register so we know how many packets to purchase. If you have a grandchild that may visit with you a few times during the school year, we would like to encourage you to register them. If you have a child that MIGHT want to participate(we are not asking for a commitment as we know things are currently fluid), please email Catherine.Coats@attnet so she can include them in the count.
The Adults (6th grade and up) will be exploring Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs & Practices by Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe. If you'd like to learn more or revisit who Episcopalians live out and deepen our life of faith, you'll love this conversation! Here's how to join:
