The Discovery Series: A Christian Journey is an opportunity for those who are exploring their faith and their relationship with the Episcopal Church. If you or someone you know may be interested in becoming a member, renewing membership, or just learning more, consider participating in one of our two upcoming Discovery Weekends.
Discovery Weekends: February 21-23, March 20-22
Our Priest and a team of laity will lead the series, which involves video presentations, talks, and group discussion. Meals are provided. Childcare provided upon request.
The schedule for both weekends is:
- Friday: 5:30 – 9 pm
- Saturday: 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
- Sunday: 9:30 – 10:30 am with Sunday brunch following the 10:30 am worship service
This weekend is for both youth and adults. Those who complete the series may be presented to the Bishop for confirmation, reception or reaffirmation on Sunday, April 19. However, there is no obligation required.
Watch an introductory video
The video series is much like a History Channel cable television format with video footage and voice over. It is designed to help every Christian – new or lifelong, young or old – discover their own path to a life in Christ.
Like our lives, careers and relationships, our spiritual growth is also a journey. This series is intended to help everyone forge a lifelong relationship with God.
The series addresses the spiritual life stage of virtually everyone – from the beginner to those seeking more advanced levels of knowledge. It takes a basic look at our faith and the history and beliefs that bring us together as Christians. It is an invitation to spiritual growth and lays the groundwork to begin or continue a spiritual journey.
Here’s what we’ll cover
- The Path to Episcopal Worship includes an instructed Eucharist, a history of the Episcopal Church and information about the Church’s traditions and governance.
- A Journey of Faith includes basic information about the Bible, the Trinity, the Kingdom of God, who Jesus is, the Creeds and Baptism.
- A Path to Spiritual Maturity includes an in-depth discussion about the importance of Bible study and different forms of prayer, both personal and corporate.
- The Great Commission shows how our stories are reflections of ancient stories in the Bible and teaches participants how to share their own stories with friends, neighbors and coworkers, making disciples who make disciples.
