Everyone is welcome to our congregational activities.
Sermon series: Baptized into the body
January 12 we start our winter sermon series on Baptized into the Body. Christians believe in incarnation – that matter and spirit belong together – and rituals are one way to enact that belief. But rituals lose meaning over time without reflection. So as we did with communion in the fall, we will explore baptism in the Bible and also look at our practices of baptism and membership here at Benton Mennonite. Some of the questions we hope to explore: Why be baptized? Why did John the Baptist and Jesus talk about a baptism of water, of spirit and of fire? What does it mean to be a member of Christ’s body and how does that relate to the institutional church? How can baptism and membership be a spiritual practice that helps us live out what we say we believe?
