Adult Confirmation Course

This course is open to anyone seeking to be confirmed, received, or reaffirmed as a member of The Episcopal Church. The course is also open to any confirmed Episcopalian seeking a “refresher class” in the life of our denomination. The course will be led by The Rev. Stephen B. Stine, Deacon, with assistance by the other Christ Church clergy. The course will explore the liturgy, history, theology, and mission of The Episcopal Church. We will learn how each member can participate fully in the life of our parish. The Rt. Rev. Jeff W. Fisher, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Texas, will conduct adult confirmations at the 11:00 am service downtown on Sunday, May 5, 2019. The class will start January 27 at 10:00 am in the downtown library, 3rd floor. For questions and to sign up,, 903-597-9854.
