Methodism Classes

Once again the Catawba Valley District is offering classes on Methodism for clergy and laity who serve in leadership positions in your church.

Dr. Jonathan LeMaster-Smith holds a PhD from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Christian Education and Congregational Studies. He regularly teaches United Methodist studies for Garrett-Evangelical, as well as courses in faith formation and discipleship for various schools. 

There are three 2-day classes offered this summer: UM History, UM Doctrine, and UM Polity.  Each class consists of 2 days of instruction, held on a Friday - Saturday. The cost for each 2-day class will be $50, which covers the cost of refreshments and lunches.  (NOTE: The Catawba Valley District will provide a $25 scholarship for all registrants who are members of the CV District.  Your total cost will be $25 per class.)

There are also books that are required, which you will need to purchase before class and bring with you. The books are available at www.amazon.com and/or www.cokesbury.com. 

Classes will be held at McKendree United Methodist Church (3537 Maiden Hwy, Lincolnton NC).

You must acquire the books before class and bring them with you. Books are available from Cokesbury.com if you wish to purchase; or you might be able to borrow one from your church.
