Lay Servants Lead in Worship – Lay Servants will learn the formative nature of worship and how it can revitalize persons’ lives drawing on five principles: God’s Word is primary; active congregational participation is crucial; spontaneity and order are both important; worship should be relevant and inclusive; and worship is communion. This course will discuss the formative nature of worship; explain some basic resources for planning and leading worship as well as the basic pattern of United Methodist worship. You will come to understand and communicate the uniqueness of UM worship. And, with the skills you learn, you should be able to lead your congregation into a deeper and richer experience of God through worship.
Participants are responsible for purchasing and reading the text in advance of the course. The book for this class is “Worshiping with United Methodists” (Revised) by Hoyt Hickman. You can order your book from Cokesbury or other vendors (i.e. Amazon). It is expected the book will be read prior to attending the course.
