New Class: “Praxis: Doing the Faith”
Jesus bids His Church to “make disciples.” How do you do that? How do you follow Christ in a way that makes other followers? When and how might you baptize someone? How might you share the faith with unbelievers or family members? What does the Bible say about living in the family? How do Christians pray daily? How might you read the Bible with more understanding? Why do we celebrate Holy Communion the way we do it? How might you lead a simple service of prayer? This class is appropriate for confirmed believers of any age who want to dig just a bit deeper.
