SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday School starts at 10:20 am sandwiched by our 9 am and 11:15 am services. We have a brief time of fellowship followed by Sunday school for all ages. We encourage you to join us for a cup of coffee, drop your kids off at a class for their age, and then sit in on any adult class.

WEEKDAY CLASSES

We encourage all adults to get plugged in to a ministry at Incarnation. Through our Sunday and weekday classes and Bible studies, Community Life Groups, and Growth Groups, every person is provided an opportunity to build key relationships that can last a lifetime. Community is an important part of life at Incarnation. Together, you become renewed in your faith.

We also encourage you to get involved by serving each other during worship and serving the poor in our community. We hope you will connect with us so we can help get you plugged in where it best meets your needs.

(SUNDAY FORUM LINE UP)

    • January 7: Forgiveness
      Dr Matthew Lockard (parishioner and SMU professor)
      Philosophers have long argued that forgiveness involves ceasing to resent another who has wronged you. In this class, we will look at what distinguishes true forgiveness from other forms of resentment cessation, with a view to understanding better both how to forgive and what it means to be forgiven, according to the Gospel.
    • January 21: The Christian Vision of Work
      Dr Elisabeth Kincaid (parishioner and PhD in Ethics, Notre Dame)
      Do we only work because of the Fall? In this class Dr Kincaid will show us God’s vision of Work from Eden, to the New Heavens and the New Earth, and how this can impact our lives today.
    • January 28
      No Sunday School – Please join us between services to say goodbye to Fr. Yoder and his family.
    • February 11: Rhythms of Habit
      Jon Jordan (parishioner and Postulant for Ordination)
      Why do we have a Church Calendar, and what do we stand to gain by entering more fully into the practice of following the liturgical rhythms of each year? Join us as we explore using the Church Calendar to learn the essential practices of the Christian faith.
