The call to discipleship begins in our baptism.  As such, we are on a lifelong journey of hope, forgiveness, and focus.   Our baptism sets us free to love and serve.   We focus on loving and serving by reflecting on the baptismal promises made by sponsors or ourselves.  In Lent of 2023, we will gather the synod together ONLINE to share in this re-discovering of the gift of BAPTISM.

Each session will be 60 minutes in length, including a teaching time, as well as a time for community questions and discernment.
Each session will be held on a Monday evening (7-8 pm ET / 6-7 pm CT) in Lent (except for the kick-off event) and will be recorded and shared (along with a handout for discussion/reflection) by the next Wednesday morning for personal or congregational use. 

Here is what our series will look like:
  • Session 1 – Monday, February 13 (*** before Ash Wednesday***) – Baptism & Discipleship
  • Session 2 – Monday, February 27 – “Live among God’s faithful people”
  • Session 3 – Monday, March 6 – “Hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper”
  • Session 4 – Monday, March 13 – “Proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed”
  • Session 5 – Monday, March 20 – “Serve all people, following the example of Jesus”
  • Session 6 – Monday, March 27 – “Strive for justice and peace in all the earth”

A different speaker will lead each session’s teaching moment, and a host will help lead the discussion.
