Event Details

The history, heritage, beliefs, mission and culture of The United Methodist Church for anyone — newcomer or longtime member — who wants to know what’s distinctive about being a United Methodist Christian. We’ll explore the special gifts of theology, witness and organization that The United Methodist Church brings to the church universal, how we got where we are today and how our distinctive emphases are still needed in the 21st century church. This class is one of the core Lay Servant Ministries classes, but everyone is welcome. Participants must obtain the book "Living Our Beliefs: The United Methodist Way" by Bishop Kenneth Carder (it is not included in the course fee). Other materials will be downloaded. Participants should be prepared to read assignments and post their reflections on the discussion boards daily, but there is no set time to be online. This is an intense course. Participants are strongly urged to get the book and read it before the course starts, to make it more relaxed and fun. This class has been approved by Discipleship Ministries as an advanced course in Lay Servant Ministries, and is the “heritage” class required for Lay Speaker certification. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $70
