About this course:

This new Lay Servant Ministries advanced course combines two courses previously available online through BeADisciple on baptism and holy communion. Designed by the Rev. Beth Galbreath, this new course combines her approach with the key insights of two books on our sacramental life: By Water and the Spirit and This Holy Mystery, by the late Gayle Carlton Felton.
