What the Episcopal Church means to me


I have come from a family of Episcopalians, some of my grandfathers were priests.  I grew up going to Christ Church in Adams Run.

I like the services and beautiful prayers in the Book of Common Prayer.

Having married the son of a Methodist minister, we most often attended the Methodist Church when we lived in Indiana.  I never joined that denomination.

I particularly like the fact that the creed is said during the services and we have Communion frequently.

The Episcopal Church is a fine place to worship God with song, praise, and prayers.

NOTE: One of Mrs. Sturm’s grandfathers, the Reverend William Barnwell, was an early assistant priest at Grace Church, Charleston, and later, rector of St. Peter’s, Charleston.
