Adult Confirmation Class
Trinity’s annual adult Confirmation Class will meet on Wednesdays in Lent and Eastertide this year from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. in the Conference Room. Sessions will run from February 21 through May 16, with the exception of the Wednesday in Holy Week, March 28.
This class, led by the Rev. Canon Dr. Russ Snapp with assistance from other leaders of Trinity, both clergy and lay, is primarily intended for 1) baptized adults considering membership in the Episcopal Church; 2) baptized adult members who have not yet been confirmed or received by the Bishop as members of the Episcopal Church; and 3) adults desiring to be baptized, as well as confirmed, in the Episcopal Church. The class is also open to those already baptized and confirmed who wish to join others in strengthening their knowledge of the Christian faith and of our Anglican tradition, with the possibility of reaffirming their faith before the Bishop. We will celebrate Confirmation, Reception, and Reaffirmation at the Bishop Benfield’s visitation on the Day of Pentecost, which falls this year on May 20.
If you would like to participate in this class and/or if you have questions, please contact Dr. Snapp at firstname.lastname@example.org or 870-664-6404.
