From the moment of our baptisms, God guides us in a life-long journey of growing in faith and in service to others. This congregation is one of a number of sites which hosts a remarkable 2-year discipleship development program called diakonia. Twelve 5-week courses are offered over 2 years, Wednesdays, 6:30-9:30 p.m.. (summers off). This year’s classes include:
- Introduction to the Old Testament
- Christian Doctrine
- Lutheran Faith in the American Context
- Practical Ministry III: Communicating the Gospel
- Christian Worship
- Themes & Issues in Christian Ethics
The goal is to help each person grow spiritually and strengthen their gifts for ministry. It is life transforming!!! For more information please contact Deacon Camille Holman or go to: mnys.org and type in diakonia. This is an incredible experience!!!
