Below you will find a list of formation programs available during the program year (2023-2024) at St. Anne’s.
Planning Your Funeral Seminar
You are invited to come with your questions and leave with a plan at our Planning Your Funeral Seminar. Taking time to plan this service now is a real gift to your loved ones. We will talk about the liturgy, the readings, music while exploring what your wishes are for your celebration of life. All are invited to attend Saturday, September 9 from 9:30am to 12:30pm at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church.
This Fragile Earth, Sundays in October at 10am
Inspired by the Episcopal Church’s work on Creation Care, we’ll explore the ways scripture and liturgy describe a role for humans as stewards of creation and the ways in which we have left that ideal. We’ll talk about practical ways that the church can be a witness to a healthier order because, after all, merely “surviving” is well short of God’s hope for us. We’ll also have an open dialogue about the connections between creation care, social justice ministries, and our formation as Christians. The series will close with a session on Rogation Days: a way of reconnecting in worship with the natural cycles of the created world. Sessions will be led by Matthew Phillips, Stan Meiburg (former deputy administrator of the EPA), and the Rev. Lucy Strandlund. For more information, please click here.
Walk in Love- Episcopal Beliefs and Practices
Take a journey through The Book of Common Prayer, the Christian life, and basic beliefs of our faith, guided by two Episcopal priests–Scott Gunn and Melody Wilson Shobe. Walk through the liturgical year, the sacraments of the church, habits of daily prayer, and the teachings of Anglican Christianity. See how our prayer shapes our belief and our lives and how our beliefs lead us into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
Classes will take place on November 5, 12, 19, December 3, 10, and 17 at 10am in the Vestry/Library Room. The discussion of the book Walk in Love will be led by The Rev. Ginny Wilder.
If you are new to the Episcopal Church, this class is for you. If you have been a member of the Episcopal Church for all of your life, this class is for you.
