Anglicanism 101: What does it mean to be an Episcopalian?

During the month of November, we will focus on the significance of choosing to live out our Christian lives in the context of the Episcopal Church.

Our Forum hours on Sundays November 11th, 18th, and 25th will be built around the beliefs and practices of our tradition. We will discuss the meaning of the sacraments, the keeping of the seasons of the Church calendar, and the place of the Book of Common Prayer in the way we worship and the ways that we pray. Forum hour begins at 9:30 and concludes at 10:15am. We gather in Cox Hall and all are welcome.

On Sundays, November 11th and 18th, we will celebrate an “Instructed Eucharist” at the 10:30am service. The services will be interspersed with teachings as to what is going on in the celebration. On November 11th, we will concentrate on “The Word of God”, that is, from the opening hymn and greeting through our passing of the Peace of Christ. On the 18th, we will consider the intent and meaning of “The Holy Communion”, including the “Great Thanksgiving”, The Lord’s Prayer, Communion, the Post-Communion Prayer, Blessing, and Dismissal.

If you have ever wondered why it is that we do what we do during the course of our worship service, then this Instructed Eucharist is definitely for you! Come join us and bring your friends and neighbors.
