Course on Worship and Sacraments for Christian Educators, CRE's, and Elders:
 
The Faith Formation Workgroup presents a course on how we worship as Presbyterians. It will explore the theology and order of our worship. The class meets from 5:45 - 8:45 in the Presbytery office, beginning January 7. This is for anyone who is interested, but those who want credit may receive three credits as seminarians, commissioned ruling elder candidates, and educators seeking certification. Participants may take it for credit at Ecumenical Theological Seminary by registering there. For a course syllabus, or to sign up, contact Al Timm at allen@detroitpresbytery.org.
