ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Living Faith Confirmation Class Fr. David Houk – In-person in the Parish Hall and Zoom at 9:15am
This year, Fr. Houk’s confirmation class brings together youth who are preparing for confirmation (ages 12 to 18), their parents, and adults who are interested in confirmation when the Bishop visits St. John’s on Sunday, May 26. Around 25 minutes of reading is required during the week, with Sunday sessions from 9:15 to 10:15 am (in-person and on Zoom) exploring the topics of sacraments, Scripture, the Church, creeds, and the person of Jesus Christ. There are eight classes, starting on March 6.

Archived: An Outline of the Faith Fr. David Houk
Perhaps the most underutilized section of the Prayer Book is the Catechism, alternatively titled “An Outline of the Faith.” Here, we get the big picture of essential Christian faith and practice. Fr. Houk offered this guided tour of the Catechism in the fall of 2020, with theological commentary, Biblical insight, and practical application. It’s all there: from sin and redemption to the creeds and Sacraments, from the Church’s ministry to the Christian hope of life eternal. View the class on our YouTube page.
CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL
10:30 am – Children’s Chapel (Pre-K-4th Grades) Coinciding with the 10:30 am Eucharist, our children have a program in the chapel that applies the day’s reading in an age-appropriate way, combined with music and instruction about our liturgical worship. The kids gather around the cross in the undercroft (the church basement). If you’re new, just as an usher for directions to Children’s Chapel.
