One Church One Class
Practicing our Faith Together
On Sunday mornings at 10 a.m., everyone is invited to be a part of this time of fellowship and learning with the Rev. Mary Vano. We'll talk about who we are as Christians, what it means to be an Episcopalian, the Book of Common Prayer, and how we practice our faith.
Some in our parish will have already participated in this class, but that's okay... there's always more to learn! Whether you're new to the church, or even a lifelong member, there will be something good for you to gain.

The group meets on Sundays at 3 p.m. Please register for this group by emailing Rosemary Siegfried.
Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubled Times
Walk the path of love with one of the warmest, most beloved spiritual leaders of our time, and learn how to put faith into action. The way of love is essential for addressing the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing the world today: poverty, racism, selfishness, deep ideological divisions, competing claims to speak for God. This book will lead readers to discover the gifts they need in order to live the way of love: deep reservoirs of hope and resilience, simple wisdom, the discipline of nonviolence, and unshakable regard for human dignity.
This class will meet online by Zoom on Monday evenings at 8:00 p.m. for six weeks, from January 18th to February 22nd. Contact Elizabeth Connery if you are interested in participating.

God, Money, and You
We will explore our relationship with money through the lens of our faith. Topics will include:
What does the Bible say about money?
What is your relationship with money and material possessions?
How might you want to change that relationship?
What are your savings goals?
What are your giving goals?
We will discuss a number of tools - low-tech as well as "Apps" - that can help you manage your money, debt, savings, and giving better. The group will support each other in our goals, and all communication will be confidential.
This class will meet online by Zoom on Wednesday evenings, 7:00-8:00 pm beginning January 20. Please contact Laura McKinney with any questions.
