Baptism & Profession of Faith Syllabus

Winter 2017 classes begin on January 19 @ 7:30pm.

Through a brief nine week course, you’re invited to join pastoral staff and a small community of people who have experienced the beginning of a Christian life and are ready to make commitments to be baptized, or who have already been baptized and want to recommit to their baptism vows.
