This is a two-day in-person course that is designed to prepare a person for baptism and/or membership. It unpacks what NLCC believes about the gospel, baptism, unique Mennonite Brethren doctrinal distinctives, membership, and apprenticeship to Jesus, and explains how NLCC does ministry and life together. Attenders of Walnut Grove, Yorkson and Aldergrove campuses must take this course to be baptized and/or become a member.
Please note: The winter course is taught across two Saturdays, one month apart. There will be some self-directed learning assigned in between.
The corresponding Baptism Sunday is scheduled for April 2, 2023. Each Campus will be having a baptism service on that Sunday.
