Why do we do the things we do? Oftentimes, we find ourselves practicing the traditions, ceremonies, or sacraments of the church while never understanding why. We want our students to understand the reasons behind some of the things that, we as faith followers of Jesus, practice. This class aims to explain the why we do what we do. 


Class Description: In order to mature into the servants God has called his people to be, we must understand and live within His pattern for our lives and His church. This pattern of living and worship is the mold from which Christians and churches are formed in order to be pleasing to God.
