Formation

Sunday Morning Offerings

ADULT CHRISTIAN FORMATION

Adult Christian Formation is offered primarily on Sunday mornings between 9:45 and 10:45 a.m. We cover a multitude of subjects that are both Biblically based and practical for one’s daily life. If you are interested in participating in a study, please join us.  For more information on upcoming classes, please consult the calendar.

CHILDREN’S CHAPEL

Children’s Chapel is offered at the 8:30am and 11:00am services throughout the school year, taking a break during the summer months. Children ages 3 to 6 are given a blessing by clergy before the start of the above services and led to the Children’s Chapel where they follow the church service and liturgical lessons of the church year. Children are returned at the Peace, and assist with bringing the elements to the altar during Communion.

CHILDREN’S CHRISTIAN FORMATION

Christian Formation for Children is offered during the school year for ages 3 through 5th grade. Ages 3 to 3rd grade meet in the Parish Hall classrooms. The 4th and 5th grade class meets in the upper classroom next to the youth room. 6th through 8th graders meet in the Youth Room.  All classes use a seven year curriculum called, "Growing in Faith," designed by and for Episcopalians to learn more about scripture, worship and faith in Jesus Christ.

 

Sacramental Preparation

BAPTISM

"Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as God's children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God" (Book of Common Prayer, p. 858).  Baptisms are offered four times per year in the Episcopal Church: early January, the Saturday before Easter, in May and the first Sunday in November.  If you are interested in receiving the sacrament of Baptism, there is a required class one week prior to the service itself.  Please contact the Church Office for more information.

COMMUNION DISCOVERY

The reality of Baptism is that, as we mature, we grow into our understanding of the gift of grace God has given us.  Our Communion Discovery class is meant to help children grow into their understanding of what we as Christians receive through the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.  This class is not required, but is available to help children grow in their faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  It is offered once every spring, and is open to all children four years old and older.  For more information on the next available class, please contact Tracy Miller.

CONFIRMATION (YOUTH AND ADULTS)

"Confirmation is the 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" (Book of Common Prayer, p. 860.  Confirmation is open to all adults, and youth who are in 7th grade or older.  The youth have a confirmation retreat prior to the bishop's visit.  The adults participate in a six-week class prior to confirmation to learn more their faith and the commitment they will be making.  For more information on either class, please contact the Church Office.

HOLY MATRIMONY

"Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which the woman and man enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help the fulfill their vows" (Book of Common Prayer, p. 861).  The clergy of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation would be happy to discuss Holy Matrimony with anyone who desires to meet with us.  Please contact the Church Office to set an appointment at your earliest convenience.

BURIAL

Christian burial is by its very nature celebratory.  We rejoice that our loved ones are reunited with Christ.  However, we also recognize that those left behind are grieving their loss.  To that end, we offer the service of burial.  If you are interested in having a clergy person officiate at a funeral, in establishing directives for your own service, or in purchasing a niche in Annunciation's columbarium, please contact the Church Office to set up an appointment to speak with one of our clergy.
