We are delighted to announce that Bishop Andrew will be visiting St. John’s on Sunday, June 23rd and will be preaching and presiding at our 10:30 worship service that day!
We will have an Inquirers Class as preparation for anyone who is 13 years old or older and is interested in being Confirmed when Bishop Andrew is here.  
The Inquirers Class is also the preparation for anyone who is interested in baptism for yourself or for your child.  
In addition, we are delighted to have anyone attend the Inquirers Class who is interested in learning about why we worship, what the meaning of our worship is, and how our worship can enrich our faith more deeply.  It is a great opportunity for new folks and long-term folks to get to know each other and explore our faith together.
The classes will be in-person after the church service (with a few minutes in between for coffee and a snack at coffee hour).
Eight Elements of Worship
The way we worship shapes the way we believe and vice versa.  This class is part of “faith seeking understanding” as we learn how and why we worship God, as well as how and why we love our neighbours.  
The class will have plenty of opportunity for group discussion and questions and your own sharing.
 In each class, we will learn more about one of the eight elements of our Sunday worship service.
