Upcoming Adult Formation Class Schedule

A User Guide to the Book of Common Prayer and Hymnals

Sundays, May 26 – June 30 at 9:00 a.m.

In the Trinity Room

As we are experimenting with a reduced-waste bulletin during the summer months, join us for an in-depth look at how to use the BCP and our hymnals, as well as their history and importance. Our first Sunday, we will have a sample bulletin for our first Sunday with a reduced-waste bulletin so we can “practice” and explore the reasons behind this temporary experiment.
