Association classes set to begin today
The Mount Canaan Association’s Congress of Christian Education has announced its spring 2014 classes.
The Association consists of 24 area churches located in the CSRA from Aiken to Edgefield, according to the Rev. Debbie McCain, president of the Congress of Christian Education. The moderator for the group is the Rev. Dr. Albert James, pastor of the Second Providence Baptist Church.
“The Association is housed on the historical campus of Bettis Academy, Trenton, South Carolina,” McCain said. “The campus has several buildings, including a library, museum, multipurpose building and a hall, sometimes preferred as the chapel. Annually the Congress Christian Education Auxiliary of the Mt. Canaan Association holds classes to unify and enrich church workers. These classes (include) training Bible teachers, superintendents, Christian education directors and workers, evangelism to laymen enchantment. The Congress Christian Education Auxiliary is opening up the doors to all those interested in training and learning of God’s Word.”
The dates for these classes start today and occur every week – Feb. 13, 20 and 27, and March 6, 13, 20 and 27. The times for the classes are 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the LW Collins building of Bettis Academy.
Classes include “I Am a Church Member” by the Rev. Dr. Rodney Edmonds, pastor of Mt. Olive Baptist Church; “Evangelism” by Minster Vanessa Holloway, daughter of the House of Cedar Grove Baptist Church, Edgefield; and “A Call to be Christian” by McCain.
All are invited to the event, and McCain said the only necessity is that attendees be prepared to “unwrap the word of God.”
