Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Baptism
All laity are invited to participate in Lay Servant Ministries courses, not just persons seeking to become a Local Lay Servant or Certified Lay Servant.
“Come to the Waters” can deepen your congregation’s experience of baptism, confirmation and reaffirmation of baptism through this wide-ranging study of By Water and the Spirit, Scripture, Church history and United Methodist theology and practice of the sacrament. This course will reference, but go beyond, the official United Methodist teaching document on baptism. The class considers preparation of adults for baptism and the unique challenges of the digital age.
