SF VI - The Practice of Church

Sign up for the Spring 2019 Practice of the Church class HERE. Starting Sunday, February 10th.

The Practice of Church (SF VI) class, offered every spring semester on Sunday evenings at 5 p.m., is designed to help participants understand God’s purpose for the church and its mission to this world. Beginning with Pentecost, we will consider the ministry of the Holy Spirit, whom God sent to enable the church to fulfill the ongoing mission of Christ’s Kingdom in this world. From there, we will discuss the many ways the Bible speaks about the church and its authority, Presbyterian church governance, the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and baptism and the offices of ruling elder and deacon and their qualifications.

Throughout the class, we will interact thoroughly with Redeemer’s own philosophy of ministry, considering how the broader principles for the church are applied in our congregation. Specifically, we consider our approach to worship, Bible study, shepherding and counseling, mercy ministry and evangelism.

Please note that this class, along with the Introduction to Christian Theology (SF V), is required for all men’s and women’s ministry leaders, deacon assistants, and for someone to become eligible for nomination to the offices of deacon and ruling elder.
