Good news! North District Lay Servant Ministries is setting records: For the first time in memory, we are offering TWO Academies in one month! For the first time ever, we are offering an advanced course written specifically for the Desert Southwest Conference! SEPTEMBER 7-8, 2018.
Due to lack of registrations, the host church and I have agreed we will cancel the Lay Academy Basic Course at St. Johns UMC in Kingman, AZ on Friday-Saturday, June 29-30. PLEASE NOTE: THE ADVANCED COURSE WILL CONTINUE AS SCHEDULED.
Over the past several years, Lay Servant Ministries (LSM) has undergone changes in its form, but not in its mission to equip laity for their role in ministry as disciples of Jesus Christ. North District Lay Servant Ministries Team takes its responsibility for bringing that opportunity to laity very seriously. How do we do that?
Trinity United Methodist Church will host the next North District Lay Servant Ministries Academy on Friday and Saturday, September 22-23, 2017. There will be two separate classes. You may only sign up for one class. Both classes will begin on Friday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. And, both classes will continue on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In order to receive a certificate of completion you must attend both sessions of your class.
North District Lay Servant Academy will be hosted by First Henderson United Methodist Church on five consecutive Wednesdays (except May 31), beginning May 10 through June 14, 2017, 6:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. First Henderson UMC invites participants to bring a dish to share and join them at their regular Wednesday evening potluck supper (Call to see if there is still available space: 702-217-5585).
