Director of Lay Servant Ministries, Mountain Sky Conference

The Mountain Sky Conference of Lay Servant Ministries will offer the basic course on Zoom on May 11 and 18. This will be a new and unique way of presenting the courses. Join us across the Mountain Sky area!

The basic course is the first course in Lay Servant Ministries, and is required to become a Lay Servant. Unfortunately, so many are unable to attend the course in person due to distance, time and cost. The conference directors of Lay Servant Ministries are dedicated to helping laity respond to God's call to serve their church in roles where they are gifted. This past year we united the two conferences to create the Mountain Sky Conference. This challenged the directors to research new ways to reach and educate the laity with the Lay Servant Ministries courses in areas where traveling long distances create obstacles.

We invite laity across the Mountain Sky Conference to join us from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 11 and 18 through Zoom, which is a remote video conferencing platform. We will fellowship and work together through the course book to gain deeper knowledge of The United Methodist Church and our call within the church. Please see the attached flyer for more information or to register.
