Pastor’s class will be coming soon!--Starting March 3
The Pastor’s Class is for those who are considering being baptized. Any child, youth or even adult who has never been baptized before and is interested in learning more about baptism in preparation for being baptized is invited to attend the class. They will interview others in the church about their faith and own baptism. They will also learn a little history about the Christian Church (DoC) and such things as the five finger exercise Walter Scott used to explain faith. First you hear, then you believe, repent, and confess your faith and then you are baptized. Children who are old enough to un-derstand the meaning of baptism are welcome to attend the class. Parents, please talk it over with your child and if they say they are ready and want to participate and do their homework, then I hope to see them in class beginning March 3rd. Classes will be held during the Sunday School hour in my office.
