Cost: Free
Event Navigation

Taught by Rev. Cindy Boggs VIA ZOOM and in person at First UMC, Shinnston

Dates: February 7 – March 14, 2022 (Mondays, 6:30 – 8:30 pm)
Registration deadline is January 10th.

This is a 6-week course that will enhance your knowledge of other denominations throughout America and we will have a week to talk about World Religions also. Students ask…what do other denominations believe? Here is our opportunity to learn just what we always wanted to know. The traditions we will examine are Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, Anglicanism, Baptists, Pentecostalism, and Methodism. For each group, we will have a brief history, outline major beliefs, and describes some things we can learn from that tradition to strengthen our own Christian faith. This class is an “other” advanced class and will count toward maintaining Certified Lay Servant status, but it is not one of the required classes to become a Certified Lay Speaker.

This is a small group study. Attendance at all six classes is required to receive credit if you are on the lay servant pathway. There is no charge for this class – you will need to purchase the text “Christianity’s Family Tree” by Adam Hamilton. It is available from Amazon (ISBN # 978-0687491162) in kindle and print versions and also from Cokesbury. (Please allow plenty of time for delivery).

Registration deadline is January 10th.

Questions regarding the course may be directed to Mary Bane at 304-692-0003 or by email to crazymcb1@gmail.com.
