The Church of the Incarnation strives for unity around a basic expression of “mere Christianity”. Our Essentials class is designed to be useful for anyone who follows Jesus in any context. The course enables people with diverse experiences and expectations to more clearly understand the core beliefs and practices of Christian life together.  

Essentials FAQ

If you are not a Christian but would like to explore Christianity, Essentials is for you. It is also for those who are Christians but would like to grow in faith and knowledge. If you would like to become a member of The Church of the Incarnation or enter more deeply into our community, attending Essentials is an important step. 

Each session includes dinner, teaching, and discussion. The course runs from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. one night a week (usually Wednesdays), for 5 consecutive weeks. The church will also provide childcare. 

Each week covers a different topic about Christianity, including: gospel, worship, discipleship, community, and mission. 

Essentials is offered twice a year: typically Fall and late Spring. In March we offered our first ever Sunday afternoon time slot, so that could be a possibility in a future series.

The fall session is scheduled for Wednesdays on February 21 & 28, March 6, 13 and 20, 2024 at 6pm.
