United Methodists and the Sacraments is designed for use with any group of adults interested in learning more about how United Methodists understand and practice the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.

Writer, Gayle Felton, guides us through the rituals and practices of both these sacraments in order to help us understand their life-enriching value. She reminds us that our lives in Christ are grounded in baptism and sustained by holy communion. In baptism God claims us and makes us members of Christ’s body, the church. In Holy Communion God offers grace and strength for our spiritual journey. We are truly called to live the sacraments of baptism and holy communion, as well as to receive them.

 

Each chapter offers a comprehensive look at what United Methodists believe and how United Methodists practice the sacraments.

Chapters and contents:

  • Chapter one “The Sacraments,” gives an overview of the meaning of the sacraments in Christian faith and in the United Methodist Church.
  • Chapters two through five, “Holy Baptism,” “Questions About Baptism,” “Holy Communion,” and “Questions About Holy Communion,” review United Methodist beliefs about these sacraments and questions people have about them. 
  • Chapter six “Living as Baptized and Communing Christians” helps the reader to explore what it means to live out the sacraments in daily Christian life.

 
Questions for discussion and reflection with helps for how to use the book in small group settings are provided.
