To discuss the 2011 report from the Faith Formation Committee, post your comments here.
Here is a brief look at some of the info the report contains:
The Faith Formation Committee recommends that there be changes added to the Church Order to guide how to best address the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Among the word changes that could be added include:
- "Baptized members shall be encouraged to make a public profession of faith with the use of a prescribed form in a public worship service."
- "All baptized members who come with age- and ability-appropriate faith in Jesus Christ are welcome to the Lord's Supper and called to obey the scriptural commands about participation in an age- and ability-appropriate way under the supervision of the elders."
- "Each congregation shall determine the appropriate age at which a confessing member shall receive such privileges and responsibilities."
