Lay Servant Ministries Informational Event Recap

Thanks for Joining Us!

Thank you to everyone who attended and presented at the Lay Servant Ministry Event in Plymouth on Saturday July 23.  There were 30 people who attended "Equipping Our Laity". We heard some great witnessing from Certified Lay people and a great presentation from Dr. Kevin Fickenscher entitled  “Crossing  the Threshold…Embracing the Transition”.

I hope attendees went home motivated to take the next step. I know 12 attendees chose their next step and I’ll be looking for a leader for the advanced course “Leading Worship” over the next few weeks. 

6 of the 12 people are ready to take the Basic Course that we hope to start  in September. Thanks again to all and to the Plymouth UMC for hosting us!
