Basic Lay Ministry 

God calls you to a life of servanthood as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Perhaps you have felt a nudge to serve your local church in a greater capacity. This course helps you follow that call. You will hear about a variety of opportunities to serve your local and greater church. Participants are encouraged to follow Wesley's teachings on the ministry of the laity and the importance of servant leadership. The course is facilitated by Marsha Egan, District Lay Leader. The required book is, Lay Servant Ministries Basic Course Participant’s Book by Sandy and Brian Jackson. This class is open to everyone but required for Certified Lay Servants. We are asking that everyone wear masks and practice CDC guidelines on social distancing.

Leading Worship focuses on the ministry of laity who regularly or occasionally lead a group or congregation in worship. The discussion includes worship content and practice in leadership roles and skills. Attention is paid to understanding the energy and flow of leading worship, prayer in worship, understanding the Christian Year, the use of the Revised Common Lectionary and basic dos and don’ts of effective worship leadership. The class facilitator is Mitch Ross, District Lay Leader. The required book is Worshiping with United Methodists by Hoyt L. Hickman. This class is open to everyone, but required for Certified Lay Speakers. We are asking that everyone wear masks and practice CDC guidelines on social distancing.
