Ohio Conference and Central District Conference are co-hosting a workshop about baptism, Believe and Be Baptized: Conversations on a 500-year-old Tradition. Led by historian John D. Roth, this workshop will take place Saturday, Nov. 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Columbus Mennonite Church.
The workshop will include a time of conversation with local Catholic and Lutheran clergy, and will explore a number of questions, such as the following:
- Does the mode of baptism matter?
- What is the appropriate age of baptism (especially for those who are raised in the church?)
- How do we know if a candidate is ready for baptism? What kind of instruction is required?
- What is the link between baptism and church membership? or Christian discipleship?
Lunch will be served. There is no charge for this workshop, but registration is required. Register online at https://bit.ly/Believe-BeBaptized by Oct. 25.
