This program examines what it means to be a Christian and an Episcopalian and invites participants to examine what a particular Christian community does and means. The sessions are suitable for confirmation preparation for both youth or adults new to the church as well as for general Christian formation programs for adults and youth. Sessions include worship, historical and theological content, discussion, reflection and community building. The fifteen 2-hour sessions can also be used in one-hour sessions or in weekend retreat format.
