Abstract
This Demonstration Project has arisen from our growing sense of the church as covenant community, a conviction that the whole church teaches. The Project is an attempt to renew our identity as a nurturing people to open the Conversations which will lead to the development of skills and programs for sharing faith. Central to our task is the hunch that our theology and practice of baptism is key to the recovery of the worshiping congregation as the most formative power in the life of God's people. The Demonstration project will address this opportunity by: 1. Discovering our baptismal heritage and creating a curriculum for pre-baptism training and the celebration of baptism, including a component on peace and justice on our discipleship in the world as a fulfillment of baptismal vows. 2. Developing, through a program for adults, proficiency in the skill of sharing faith with children, including the skills of parenting for peace and justice. 3. Empowering a network of families as those who seek peace and justice in their own living situations and in the broader community. 4. And finally, by increasing the involvement of parents in shaping and supporting the Christian Education program of the church. The strategies to be used include teaching, committee process, small group interaction, and the development of avenues for change in each of the goal areas.
