Christian Initiation - Baptism - The Defining Sacrament - A Three Part Lenten Series

As we travel the ancient Lenten path this season, we will be exploring the meaning of baptism as the defining sacrament of the Christian’s life. What is it, how is it done, why is it done, and most importantly what does it really mean today in our lives individually and collectively as God’s beloved people. We will also look at the importance of baptism in the life of the church today and how that life is being transformed both in congregations and in the world. Make this a part of your personal Lenten practice and join us in this important conversation. Robb Anderson will be leading this three part series.
