Sunday Morning Spiritual Formation
5-Week Series on the Sacraments
September 16th – October 14
The Christian education committee has organized a 5-week study of the sacraments. In the Reformed tradition of the Presbyterian Church, we practice two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. In the following groups, leaders will explore the meaning and practice of the sacraments as they inform our faith and impact our lives.

Sacrament: The Visible Signs Proclaiming the Promise of the Gospel
Teaching in the church gives instruction in the scriptures, in theology, in the interpretation of human existence in the light of Christian faith, and in the duties and practices of Christian life. This instruction is on the human level essential for the life of the community of faith; it is also the primary obligation of the church. Furthermore, if it is not done by the church it will not be done by anyone else.
