In response to many of your requests for tools and or guidelines to help you in your local church, as Lay Servants, Lay Leaders, Lay Members to Annual Conference, Bible Study and Sunday School teachers – et al. We listened! So, now it is your time to COME!
Come, gather at Sanlando UMC on Saturday, May 11 from 9:30 am to noon for a time of worship, sharing, exchanging ideas and gathering tools to help you in your faith walk and, in your service with and for others.
Come, as we share ideas on how to improve your leadership skills and how to apply your spiritual gifts. There will be a time set aside for you to share with each other what has worked in your ministry areas and how to improve some things. We are connectional and we are hoping that will be evident.
So, come and share what you would like to see happen and above all, please come for the Fellowship! We would love to see you on that Saturday and we look forward to serve you. We are already in prayer for each of you who would attend and spend time discussing this Ministry of the Laity!
