These classes are open to anyone!
However, you must be a member of a United Methodist congregation to become certified.
For Spring classes, you must attend all sessions, in full, to receive credit for the class. Ten hours of total instruction is required for completion. Your pastor and family are invited to join us for a closing worship on 2/17 at 5:00pm, when you will receive a certificate in recognition of your hard work!
To maintain certification status, a Lay Servant Annual Report must be turned in yearly and a Lay Servant Academy course must be completed at least once every three years.
