The First Baptist Church of Westfield plans to offer a course to the community this upcoming March. The class will be entitled, "An Introduction to Church History: The 100 Most Important Events."

The class will consist of six sessions. Each hour-long meeting will consist of a lecture and a time for group discussion. The course's lectures will be supplemented with readings from a short textbook and a variety of primary source documents.

Classes wil start at 7:00 pm on Thursday nights beginning March 5th.

This will also be the first time that the Rev. Kadin J.G. Williams, a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, will have exclusively taught a course in Westfield.

Pastor Kadin will also be leading a field trip that is open to the public on March 8th immediately following the service. Participants will board the train and head into Manhatten to visit the new exhibit that the Museum of Biblical Art will be featuring.

The trip, which is viewing the exhibit Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces from Florence Cathedral, is expected to bring participants a greater sense of appreciation for the way renaissance art embodied a sense of courage and human potential.

Lastly, Pastor Kadin will be leading a group to Rhode Island between May 28th and 31st. In the course of this excursion participants will visit the First Baptist Church in America, Roger Williams National Memorial, and Brown University before departing for Block Island to perform a variety of service projects with the Migrant Worker Center based in New Shoreham's Harbor Church.
