Lay Servant Fall Training Session

Starts:     Mar 15, 2019 @   Ends:     Mar 16, 2019 @  

Lay Servants are to serve the local church or charge in any way in which their witness or leadership and service inspires the laity to deeper commitment to Christ and more effective discipleship. This includes the interpretation of scriptures, doctrine, organization, and ministries of the church.

If you feel a calling to Lay Servant Ministries, there will be a training session Friday and Saturday, March 15-16 at the First United Methodist Church (930 North Boulevard). Classes will be held from 6 - 9 p.m. on Friday and 8:30 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. on Saturday. You must attend all sessions to receive credit for the course.

Lay Servants must take the Basic course before they can take any advanced classes. 

This course is foundational for all courses in lay servant ministries. Participants are encouraged to discover and employ personal spiritual gifts as God intended and to consider the importance of exercising servant leadership, developing future leaders, remaining rooted in consistent spiritual practices, and being part of a group that holds members accountable in their discipleship.

You may download the registration form here. The registration form along with a check for $35 (made out to BR District UMC with LSM Training in the memo line) should be mailed to Mike Allen, 223 Kimbro Drive, Baton Rouge 70808, by Friday, February 22. (NOTE: The registration form must be signed by your pastor.)

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
