Event Details

Designed for Part-Time Local Pastors and Certified Lay Ministers, but open to any person, clergy or lay, this course provides a clear understanding of the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. It includes practical guidance for interpreting the sacraments to others, as well as how to address difficult situations in the parish. Topics to be covered include God’s initiative and human response in baptism, how to deal with someone who wants to be re-baptized, understanding one’s own role in the sacraments, and making communion more meaningful. Course content is delivered primarily through an interview with the Rev. Vicki Gordy-Stith, director of connectional ministries for the Peninsula-Delaware Conference and former Dover District superintendent. There are also two live online sessions where the instructor presents material and interacts with students. This course is one of the required courses for the Certificate in Congregational Leadersh program. Successful completion of this course fulfills 1.0 CEU. Price: $59 ***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
