Confirmation Class led by Ryan Landes
Every Sunday until December 5, 2021
10:10pm – 10:50pm
As Anglican Christians, we have a beautiful way of marking someone’s personal decision to claim the Christian faith for themselves and make a commitment to grow deeper into Christian maturity.
We call it Confirmation.
Our Prayer Book describes it well: “The Anglican Church requires a public and personal profession of the Faith from every adult believer in Jesus Christ. Confirmation or Reception by a Bishop is its liturgical expression...In Confirmation, through the Bishop’s laying on of hands and prayer for a daily increase in the Holy Spirit, God strengthens the believer for Christian life in the service of Christ and his kingdom.”
During this service, those who have been raised in and made an adult profession of faith in other Christian traditions can be received into the Anglican Church with prayer and the laying on of the Bishop’s hands. Those who have been confirmed or received may also reaffirm their commitment to Christ and his church through prayer and the laying on of the Bishop’s hands if they feel called by God to publicly renew their commitment to the faith.
Since the days of the early church, those desiring Confirmation have been expected to complete a course of Christian instruction (now usually known as “Confirmation Class”) covering the basic teachings of the faith at a more in-depth level. Those who would like to be received or reaffirm their faith, or anyone who would like a refresher course in Anglican doctrine, are invited to join our Confirmands (those being Confirmed this year) in our Confirmation Class led by Ryan Landes. It will be a five-week course: November 7th - December 5th. It will take place during the Education Hour (10:10 AM - 10:50 AM) in the Panel Room on Sundays.
