To truly follow our Lord and to “be imitators of God as beloved children” (Ephesians 5:1), we must palpably and authentically follow Jesus’ call to worship, grow, serve, lead, and give. As Proverbs 1:5 tells us to, “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,” it is our hope to teach and guide every parishioner through the core values we follow.
Just as Jeremiah 17:8 says that “He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream,” we will grow roots of our own, carefully tend them, and look for the fruit we intend to bear. Join us in these core curriculum classes to follow what your parish deems beneficial, deep roots in our faith.
And, like a child eagerly waiting to see its seed sprout, we want to chart progress. It is our hope that every individual will attend each of the core curriculum classes. To fortify your potential, classes are available subsequent semesters in both the spring and fall. We encourage you to “Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress” (1 Timothy 4:15).
Are you equipped to articulate the faith within you courageously and lovingly? Bishop Burton explains why we need more than instruction to become deeply rooted to respond to the challenges that Christians face today.
We encourage you to commit to taking one of the classes offered today and continue with the whole series, one each semester until you have completed them all.
